One of the Tokyo flagship stores is located in Omotesando consists of 2,000 to 2,500 different items available at the store. On the last Friday of each month, around 100 to 150 new products are added to the already extensive number of items, so you will definitely want to go again for more!

If you plan to do a big haul, make sure to bring your own big bag or purchase one at the store (price around ¥200), as you’ll only be handed relatively small plastic bags at the cashier but we suggest you buy the city limited edition canvas bag so you can keep it as souvenir too!
