    One more thing is you can get tax free (tax return) in Isetan Shinjuku's store immediately.

    I'd recommend the Daikanyama T-site for something interesting to do. Daikanyama itself is worth checking out (very close to Shibuya) and the T-site is a treasure trove of books. There's also some very good food in that neighborhood, and Lift if you are into that sort of thing

    Yep, T-Site is high on my list, thanks.

    Not quite a shop information, but since some members are looking through the thread for some quick tips, I highly recommend to visit Undercover 25-th year retrospective exhibition, hold in Tokyo opera city art gallery not far from Shinjuku. The exhibition will last till October 23. It's all inspiration!

    Another interesting place to visit, I didn't pay much attention to before is Volga Volga showroom situated near Bakuro-cho station. Visited it yesterday and had a very warm conversation with Mr. Panteleev himself.

    Have fun!

    Yes, I was so happy to see that full coverage will be soon on www.sz-mag.com since I am unable to visit it myself.

    Sorry, my mistake.
    I made like a million photos. If of any use, I'll post some in the UC thread.

    Venus fort is a mall in Odaiba, has a Caesar's Palace-like interior. Mainly aimed at 15 year-old girls as noted. Also pretty touristy. That's very surprising anyone carries the viridi anne over there, but I suppose that's why it's on sale. Not much else worth seeing over there unless you enjoy very small, man-made beaches and underwhelming replicas of the statue of liberty.

    i dont think (from the description of the event) that they "carry" tva in the sense that they stock it seasonally. i think that this is (for whatever reason) is a stand alone sale of old season stock. why it is not happening at the flagship or someone who they are more closely affiliated with...no idea.

    Shops aside, can anyone recommend/introduce me to a good speakeasy bar in Tokyo? I mean the bar which doesn't have an online/map presence, usually located behind the kitchen of some kind of fastfood joint etc. I've been in Moscow, London, Paris so I would love to check one in Tokyo. Thanks in advance!

    I know this post is a bit old, but for anybody in Tokyo looking for good bars two absolute must tries are:

    Ben Fiddich - like a speakeasy in that it's the top of a nondescript office buliding in shinjuku, but the bartender is a cocktail genius. He'll mix e.g. an aperol spritz by blending the underlying herbs instead of pouring Aperol out of a bottle. My qualm with the post-Petraske cocktail world is that it's more show than product, they're tilting two bottles, shaking the mixture and you're not walking out without losing a benjamin. Ben Fiddich is like Death&co/Milk&honey/etc. etc. but done properly.

    The Open Book - pretty new bar in the Golden Gai, when I went it was just a business card stuck to a wooden door. But they use a hop infusion tap to mix lemon shandys, there are books everywhere, and the bartender's grandfather was the first person to translate Raymond Chandler novels to Japanese. Laid back, awesome, gotta go.
