Tokyo's grandest and oldest department stores, Mitsukoshi and Takashimaya, politely stand off against each other on either side of Nihombashi. Also check out contemporary-style shopping malls such as Coredo Muromachi and KITTE, which stock up on trending brands and designer arts and crafts in one handy location. Marunouchi's Naka-dōri is a super-pleasant strip of high-class boutiques.
