    I'm currently visiting Tokyo and was wondering if there is any shopping related reason to visit the Devoa flagship store in Setagaya...I've been to some local shops to try on some gear and I'm generally too big (size 48) for most of the stuff in stock.

    There is nothing around his flagship, and it's not easy to find it at some kind of gallery near the train station. But there is a designer's workshop inside the store and you have a chance to meet Daisuke Nishida there as I did.

    the flags ship had size 3 and 4 so i would say it is worth it.

    I've read a bit of this thread - many good tips. Thanks to all who contributed.

    I've been told (by many) that there are some great consignment stores to score some out-of-date gems (think Yohji, CDG + other Japanese staples). I've done a bit of searching and can't really find anything. If anyone has some suggestions, it'd be much appreciated.

    + If anyone has some suggestions for Osaka I'd be very grateful.

    osaka, i picked up some really good stuff for very cheap, in tokyo there's great stuff but the pricing is more standard, however in osaka i got two pairs of ann sneakers for 30-55 each. In osaka, only advice i can offer is to check all kind-al/rag tag branches thats what i did, not sure of any individual ones like there are in tokyo - sure there are

    That's a great find. I wore a pair of low top Ann's to a festival where it rained the entire time and long story short, they need replacing.

    Did you pick them up at a Rag Tag or Kindal in Osaka, or was it a more specialised consignment store?

    i can't recall because i didn't distinguish between them so much in other cities apart from tokyo, i would just see the sign, remember the location and go in like that so i really can't say. However i can say i have no advice for you about specialised consignmenet stores in osaka// i found none im afriad

    here is this shop which i have been there before and thought it was really worth a visit especially if you are looking for Comme des garcons and yohji. Shop name 10tow near tokyu hands shibuya. its pretty hard to find as it is located at 3rd or 4th floor above shoplots. You may need to try and go in the morning

    This shop was great! I actually didn't read this post in time, but it was suggested to me by one of the staff members at my hostel. Picked up a long boiled wool Yohji coat.

    Worth mentioning that a lot of these stores have in store discounts that aren't reflected in their online listings on Rakuten, etc.

    for me its the opposite where i have to literally go and tell them to give me the rakuten price but they price match and its fine, but you're not wrong about time sales on the occasion.

    Actually enjoyed visiting a few of the '2nd Street' second hand shops around tokyo - GF's an avid thrifter and dragged me there. Wasn't expecting much at all, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. An absolute crapshoot, mountains of 500yen garbage with a small section of high end stuff such as Ann D, yohji, Comme, Undercover, Rick Owens, & even some PH. I collect records and it gave me that same vibe of crate digging, occasionally unearthing a gem. Fun, but only if you got the time to dig though.

    Also, cheers for the 10tow recommendations in here, fantastic store.

    I will Be in Tokyo and Osaka from May 17-28. Any sales I should seek out that are likely to start that early?

    Going to Japan in July will be all over the country, any good place to cop some BBS?

    Seeing as we're all asking I guess I'll chip in. Is anything happening from late July to mid August in Tokyo or Osaka? Not just in terms of sales or fashion, I'm also interested in events or happenings during that time, though it may be too early to ask.
