vintage shopping World, Odaiba Icchome Shotengai

While travelling to Tokyo, you might search for a special place to buy souvenirs for family and friends, trying to find that something “authentic japanese” and want to be original. My recommendation is a place out of time, out of this world. Located in Odaiba‘s shopping mall Decks, Odaiba Icchome Shotengai might be the perfect spot to travel through time and bring back that unique souvenir you’re searching for.

There are many different shops inside Odaiba Icchome Shotengai. From classic souvenirs, candy stores, japanese pop culture goods and weird merchandising only in Japan. Though shopping might not be on your budget, you can just wander around, there are many other things to do. Old fashion arcade games, a theater, a spooky house, restaurants, or just for the pleasure of walking around through time and space.

How to Acces
Ride on the Yurikamome monorail, and drop off at Daiba station, or Odaiba Kaihinkoen station. Both stations leave you nearby. Also the Rinkai Line, drop off at Tokyo Teleport station. Use the maps right in the station and search for Decks shopping mall.

Want to bring something original for your partner? What about Hello Kitty trunks or those tap trunks, for some reason.
