Nice stuff, but available domestically. Unless you know of goods they don’t export

Get some raw denim for sure if you’re into that. Check out r/rawdenim it should be a dope experience.

You should also go to the Tsukiji Fish Market and experience that. And get street food by the ton. Lastly, Japanese candy / desserts are insane. Good luck 👍


Try ウォルマート. Great stuff in there


For all you Gaijin.... that’s Walmart.

Lawson Convenience Stores. Great for cheap and delicious meals on-the-go.

Ohio. Lawson became Dairy Mart became Circle C. Lawson Chip Dip lives on in perpetuity.

Porter / Head Porter (luggage/bags). Bathing Apes (this is a street wear brand. Very over the top, but fun to checkout). Do a google search on top Japanese brands. I was in Tokyo last month and had the same question. There were some good articles on it

Onitstuka Tiger, GU, Starbucks local menu, Shibuya 109 Men


MUJI (unless you live in one of the 5 US cities that has one)

I second MUJI. Didn’t even know they were in USA. Thanks BCG2. But loved their store in Toronto area. Do check it out in Japan

Momotaro jeans

of the brands that sell in the US, like CDG, bape, etc, i’ve found that the US selection is sometimes better. but you will find some unique stuff there. check out omotesando for shopping. also make a trip to hender scheme in ebisu and buy some leather goods that will develop a nice patina over time. so many streetwear brands - neighborhood, bape, atmos... the stores there are off the chain. check out stores even for designers that they have here - prada, gucci, dior - they are next level size and architecture there.

Whiskey but hard to find the good aged stuff now. They’ve exported everything
