Where is Tokyo Japanese lifestyle store?
I’m a sucker for anything with a little bit of Tokyo Japanese lifestyle store in it, and so I was really excited when I saw this list of 11 items that I can’t live without. I know that I’m an avid reader of this blog, so I know what to look for in a product, but there are so many more items that I haven’t even thought of yet.
I know, I know, I can’t live without these items too… but I want to start with the obvious ones first.
What is so great about these stores?
I think there are two reasons why Japanese Lifestyle stores are so great. First, they are the most affordable place to buy stuff in Japan. There are literally thousands of these stores that are packed with everything from electronics to clothes, cosmetics, and accessories. All at relatively low prices. Second, there are many of these stores. That are a little more high end than a typical Japanese department store. They take a little more time to shop, take more inventory, and have more of a personal touch.
That said, some people also have strong Japanese or Asian preferences and so they like this high end, Japanese style store more. They’ll come to a store like this in Tokyo and they’ll find items that they like, and then they’ll buy them. Sometimes they’ll even buy more than one thing, or buy a few things and then sell them at a later date.
What does these store consist of?
A high end Japanese store like this has more inventory than a typical Japanese department store. So you get more stuff in a store with more inventory so it’s easier for people to find something to buy.
If you were to go into a typical Japanese department store and just look at the inventory (because they are the same everywhere), you’d probably find the same kind of things you’ll find in a high end store. And if you’re a person who likes to buy more than one thing, it would probably mean you’re doing something illegal or something you’re not supposed to.
