Shopping in Tokyo

Style informs every aspect of life in Japan’s capital. This city is dead serious about fashion, so much so that visitors should set aside a day simply to check out what everyone is wearing. (Try not to gawk too openly.) The exquisite customer service in stores and the sheer range of offerings—from high-end to bargain-basement, traditional to groundbreaking—make Tokyo a fabulous place to shop. The challenge is trying to see it all, which is impossible, of course, but made easier by plentiful taxis and a willingness on the part of the general population to point you in the right direction. (Street addresses here are maddeningly vague.)
