Our first destination was the Asakusa Nakamise Shopping Street! The place was super crowded with both locals and tourists! I really wish I had taken photos of the stores so you could see what they were selling and how nicely they had arranged their things but I guess my tourist spirit is not strong enough to do that in such a jam packed area lol. They mostly sold touristy souvenirs like keychains, keychains, postcards, handkerchiefs, and keychains! I think here was the most touristy area that we had visited throughout our trip (even more than Disneyland!).
I think Yukatas are absolutely stunning! Was thinking of buying one myself too but it would just be left at the back of my wardrobe forever. :(
At the base of Tokyo Skytree is Tokyo Solamachi, which is a shopping complex! There wasnt much shopping to do but there are a shit ton of confectionery shops there (like Tokyo Banana to name one)! (Gonna post up what we bought in my Japan haul!!)
The highlight for me is that there was a Disney Store in Tokyo Solamachi!!!! The Disney Store is like a mini Disneyland, they even play the same background music in the Disney Store as the music they play in Disneyland lol. Contrary to what I had thought, the Disney Store actually sells different merchandise than the ones sold in Disneyland! The Disney Store sells limited edition merchandise so be sure to check them out too if you're an avid Disney fan like me! We spent a super long time in the Disney Store lol.
