An all-new third edition of my popular guide to cute and crafty Tokyo, available in PDF and ebook editions.
Heading to Japan? My shopping guide will help you plan your trip, with a focus on the best cute, crafty and creative places to visit. I have visited Japan four times, most recently in 2016, and share my favourite shops, sights and tips in this handy zine.
The guide has been completely rewritten with even more recommendations and advice. Get your copy and be introduced to places the mainstream guides won't tell you about.
Packed full of information and photos, it includes area guides to Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Kichijoji, Nippori Fabric Town, Akihabara, Ginza and Ueno with mini guides to Koenji, Roppongi, Shimokitazawa, Shinagawa and Tokyo station. Each area guide includes the best shops (with a focus on kawaii, fabric, washi, stationery, fashion, toys and homeware) plus places to eat and sights to see.
I've also picked out my top five shops, sights and food picks so you can check out my favourites that I return to time and time again. The Resources section includes Travel Tips, Souvenir Stamps, Useful iPhone & Android Apps, My Favourite Japan Blogs & Websites and further reading.
A PDF version can be downloaded from Payhip. 50 pages in full colour. The PDF is set up for viewing on screen in a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader or Preview, as well as on e-book readers. It can also be printed but as individual pages, not as a booklet.
Last updated in 2017. For even more shopping, dining and sightseeing tips throughout Japan check out my Planning For Japan guide book.
