The main shopping districts are in the central region of the metropolis, Shibuya, Harajuku and Shinjuku, neighborhoods are geared more towards young audiences by offering the new trends and eccentricity of Japanese fashion. Akihabara, known worldwide for being the Japanese electronics and mangas neighborhood, and Ginza, famous for displaying the great facades of the world’s most famous brands and refined malls.
Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors.
