Kagurazaka offers dividends for those looking for Japanese traditional crafts. Surprisingly, given its electronics and J-pop street cred, Akihabara can also be a great place to shop for locally made souvenirs across the gamut, thanks to the creative malls under the JR railway tracks heading towards Ueno. Jimbōchō is a dream destination for bibliophiles.
