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?

  19. Doing your shopping indoors can also be more pleasant than shopping outside, as the weather may make the journey from one shop to another unpleasant. If for example it's raining heavily outside or it's too hot, a shopping mall can provide the perfect environment in which to do your shopping. These malls are often air-conditioned so are often very peasant places to visit in very hot countries where heat exhaustion and sunburn can be a very real problem, particularly for elder people, the very young and people who may come from abroad and are not used to the hot climate. https://toptoy365.creatorlink.net/
