Tokyo shopping

Shopping is Japan's national sport, and it reaches its apotheosis in Tokyo. The Daikanyama district has cutting-edge fashion stores, while Nakameguro is more subdued, with charming European-style boutiques. Whether you plan to splash some cash or not, Aoyama is where architecturally interesting outposts of big international labels have been appearing in recent years, and it's worth a visit just to check them out; the most notable is Herzog & de Meuron's "crystal"-shaped Prada store. For sartorial inspiration, there's no better destination than Harajuku, where global street-style fashion trends are constantly born.
