Village Vanguard is one of my favourite store in Japan. As the sign says, it’s an “exciting book store”. Actually the books seem to be a secondary thing here. This store has the most amazing mix of different things. It has to be seen to be believed.
Everything from old style cameras to toys to cool household items and joke items. I can often spend a long time looking around at all of the interesting stuff. If you ever come to Japan, stoping by one of these stores is required. You won’t regret it.
