This shop has amazing Japanese craft items, perfect for quality souvenirs. We've gone multiple times while in Tokyo and always leave with great items. It is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. I highly recommend shopping here.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
