Tokyo Anime & Manga Shopping

Shopping in Tokyo

Just left Tokyo today and thought I would write up about my anime shopping excursions a little. I'm not a very typical buyer - I don't see the need for toys or figures - I like useful things like cups and bags, or pretty trinkets like stationary, stamps (ink kind) and stickers.

I visited all the main anime/manga sites I could find out about, wish I knew a local person who could show me all the really great off the beaten path type of places, but you take what you can and run with it. Oh, and I also wanted to see all the city main attractions so my time was really tight during my 5 days there.
