About ten minutes from there is the shopping metropilis of Ginza. This was Tokyo's first department store area... and is still home to Prada, Louis Vuitton and a host of other places where you can purchase small additions to your wardrobe for the equivalant of a two week european ski vacation.

They also have a store called "Uni Qlo"...which is kind of like the Japanese Gap. I snagged a nice yellow sweatshirt in size XL (which you know in north america as "medium").... this store is only notable for its tasteful advertising displays that showcase a nice line of womens clothing...
