Weekend in Tokyo, Japan
31, May 2008
I spend a week in Fujinomiya, Japan (on the foot of mount Fuji). In the weekend I moved to Shinjuku in Tokyo. This is where all the action happens. The subway station in Shinjuku is the most busiest in the world. Get off from the West exit of the station and you will see all the major mall and big discount electronic stores. If you want to take a look at some of the good Japanese department stores, here are some of my suggestions. Just after you exit the west side of the station you will see Odakyu, very close to this store is Keio, Lumine and Mylord. A short 10minute walk will get you to Takashimaya time square for some high end shopping.
Before you start exploring Shinjuku it's a good idea to get a local attraction map from the tourist office in Shinjuku station. This map comes in pretty handy as many Japanese people don't speak English.
For those electronic gadget freaks like me. Never miss the 3 big discount electronic shops. Within couple of minutes walk from the west exit of Shinjuku station is Yodobashi Camera, Bic Camera and Sakuraya. Most product sold here are for local use. The camera's are not very cheap either. Just enjoy the window shopping. B&H camera in New York will easily beat the price.
