Amazing Shopping Stores in Tokyo, Japan
What is Japanese Fashion like? Where can I find great shopping places in Tokyo?
Since Shibuya's newest shopping Oasis, Hikarie, is located immediately above the Shibuya Station on the Ginza, Hanzomon and other lines, I happened to walk up into the amazing structure the other day. I was taken immediately by the high ceilinged/airy feel of the building and I could tell there was a lot to be discovered in this new building. The 8th floor is put aside for budding artists and specialty shops as a nod to Shibuya as a center of Japanese creativity and imagination. I know a lot of people go up the street from Shibuya station across the most-famous intersection (Biohazard, etc.) but I suggest you take a few hours to go and explore this cutting edge department store. There are lots of nice photos and updates on the Shibuya Hikarie facebook page as well. https://www.facebook.com/shibuyahikarie?ref=ts&fref=ts
