Guided tour trough Japan’s No 1 international area Azabu-juban!

たい焼き

For many decades, foreigners have been living in Azabu-juban where a large number of embassies are located. The international atmosphere there is something special – something you won’t find anywhere else in Japan. In the center of Azabu-juban, you’ll find a huge shopping street area with a lot of cute shops. Boutiques with international couture and fancy cafes are located next to cheap (and useful) 100 Yen shops. In the middle of everything, you’ll still find some Japanese shops with a long history – the “shinise”.

I participated in a free, English guided tour through Azabu-juban to explore the area.

Are you on looking for the perfect souvenir from Japan but want something different, something you won’t find in your average tourist souvenir shop? You should really try out SOU SOU.
The store is famous for its colorful and happy fabrics, as well as their fashion and accessories. Nearby the “Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum” (read the article from my visit at the museum here!), the story is loved by Japanese, tourists, men and women of all ages. And believe me its’ the perfect spot to get some gifts.
