I often heard that many tourists from foreign countries bought Japanese colorful socks, low priced kimono and replica food.
Fashionable and Funny Socks
Why don't you buy these socks as souvenirs when traveling in Japan?
The price is usually 3 for 1000 yen.
Socks are an important fashion item for the Japanese people.
The reason is, because we often have to take off our shoes, when we enter a house or a building.
Causing many young people to care a lot about their socks design.
Japan focuses in producing and selling many new sock designs to cater everyone's needs.

A brand new and high quality kimono is really expensive. Some kimonos cost more than 1 million yen.
If you are looking for reasonably priced and real kimono, I recommend that you go to a second-hand kimono shop in Japan, where they offer many more types of antique design kimonos than the modern ones.

Before they sell the kimonos, they hygienically wash and clean them. The company also has skills of antibacterial washing to get rid of the smell.
The company has many shops in Tokyo. Why don't you stop by those kimono shops?
I introduce some stores around popular sightseeing places in downtown Tokyo.

Replica / Plastic Food
These items look delicious!
Replica Food is good as a souvenir. It is called Shokuhin-sample 食品サンプル in Japanese.
It looks like real food and artistic.
When you go sightseeing at TOKYO SKYTREE you can stop by a shop of replica food.
There are minimize ones as well.
Would you like to make own replica food by yourself?
Handmade kit of the replica food is available.
The shop is in a shopping mall TOKYO Solamachi located at the bottom of TOKYO SKYTREE.
