Toy Shopping in Tokyo, Japan - Part 1 : Tomica Shop

We went toy shopping in Tokyo Japan recently, and what best to buy in Japan but Japanese branded toys!  One of the mainstream brands of toys, of course, is Takara Tomy - the makers of the Tomica and Plarail lines.

Train stations in Tokyo feature some of the most interesting malls with all kinds of shops and restaurants. One of these malls is First Avenue in Tokyo Station.  This malls has lots of specialty shops including the Pokemon Store, Tomica Shop, Plarail Shop, Ultraman World, Tamagotchi Store, Hello Kitty Shop and a whole lot of others.

We visited the Tomica Shop to check out what they have, check out our video tour.  The shop wasn't too big and they only had the usual and current toys on display.  Some of the items we were hoping they would have were not there.  They had other items though that you usually would not find elsewhere, like shirts, school supplies, caps, and other souvenir items.  They also had some interesting displays like a motorised car factory, a small free play area, and a claw machine.

Prices were the same as usual toy stores so only drop by if it's convenient.  It's not really worth to go out of your way to visit this store.

Tomica Shop is located at First Avenue in Tokyo Station, Chiyoda, Tokyo Prefecture, Japan.






Do you have this toy? What do you think of it?

  2. Recently toy recalls have been made by the CPSC due to high lead content. Luckily none of our wood toys were part of this recall due to frequent and diligent testing. Feather Ticklers
