Hi, I’m Fumi. I visited Tokyo Sky Tree Town, Tokyo Solamachi that is shopping mall. Many tourists are interested in viewing Tokyo from there, but we have another way to have fun to visit Tokyo Sky Tree Town.
That are shopping and eating Japanese food! In this article, I tell you about shopping mall that are called Tokyo Solamachi.
There are over 300 shops, restaurant, aquarium and planetarium. My first time here to look around the shopping mall. Especially, I show you Japanese style goods shops. I hope you are interested in them.
MUST BUY JAPANESE souvenir, recommendation at Tokyo Sky Tree shopping mall
In this shopping mall, Tokyo Solamachi has Japanese souvenirs floor. While I went store to store, I found fancy, cool and original Japanese goods. In this article, I tell you 3 souvenirs that I chose specially.
First, I saw liquor shop that has Japanese sake. You can try to taste some of them. This shop sells wine, beer and shochu that were collected from throughout Japan too. You can get items only in this shop.
If I drink I feel bad, so I couldn’t taste them. If you can drink a lot, you’ll enjoy tasting the different.
Second, I found the coolest shop! It is SENGOKU DAMA that sells SAMURAI goods. I found iPhone cover that is printed family crest, kimono and other pictures on, umbrella such as sword, cap that has family crest.
Can you believe that you have the umbrella looks like a sword? I thought it was a toy sword when I saw it first. I couldn’t believe it.
Then, you see Japanese cheap snacks and toys shop. We call the shop “Dagashiya”. I could see like the shop everywhere when I was a child. But gradually those shops were closed.
We sometimes went there to buy cheap candy and snacks and hold money in our hand after we came back from elementary school. The shop also sold cheap toys for example, cards, toy guns, paper balloom, tap, bubbles, kite and there were more!
But nowadays, I see this Dagashiya at big shopping mall. I was very excited when I saw it. It made my family happy not only my husband but also my daughter. The shop is heaven for kids. I recommend you to get paper balloon.
It’s easy to make it, just blow into a tiny hole. Finally, you can find many Japanese souvenir shops and famous Japanese character. Enjoy buying goods as Tokyo Souvenirs for your friends or family.
