Umbrella Store

This entire shop in the Asakusa area is dedicated to the sale of umbrellas. As you can see from the picture, most of them are of the practical (rain and sun shielding) kind, and not traditional washi umbrellas.

Shinjuku Electronics

Vast electronics stores dot the landscape of Tokyo. Most of the largest and well-known are in Akihabara and Shinjuku. You’ll find entire sections devoted to just one type of item where you might have just 3 or 4 to choose from in other countries.
