Tokyo Shopper Totter

Walk This Way... Marunouchi / Yurakucho

Starting from The Peninsula’s own doorstep, LUXE walks you through our favourite fashion, lifestyle stores and snack spots in this financial district-turned-upscale retail zone...

With your back to the Pen, espy Marunouchi 7th St to your left. Turn right onto 7th, then left at the train tracks to #1-10-1 Estnation for gal/guy apparel (opp. Bic Camera). Exit left and zip up a block to #1-12-1 Ships for more chic threads (m/w). Nip out and cross straight into the road to the left of Bic, go under the bridge and on towards minimal lifestyle emporium #3-8-3 Muji on your left, complete with lovely organic caff. Exit, retrace to Ships and keep going straight on 5th St to Shinkokusai Bldg #3-4-1 Patisserie Sadaharu Aoki for cake art, and fancy chocs at La Maison du Chocolat, plus Plain People for fash accessories, low-key comfy clothes and curios.

Now take the next right into glam Marunouchi-naka Dori. Labels, Mabel! Sashay up to polka dot-daubed, ultra-mod his n’ hers outfitter #2-1-1 Comme des Garçons. Take five up on the left at Tokyo green tea titan Ippodo / Kokusai Bldg / 3-1-1 / with its zen-tastic contempo salon.

Totter on to Hermès at 1/F / Shin-Tokyo Bldg / 3-3-1 Marunouchi / for Gallic bags, plus Parisian-esque Brasserie Aux Amis for yummy bites, Papas & Nonnon, a temple of preppy cotton and cashmere duds, and The Sovereign House for wealthy gents’ kit.

Right out, march up and cross the street straight into Marunouchi Brick Square mall #2-6-1 with standout store Pass The Baton’s medley of repurposed togs. Also here is La Boutique de Joël Robuchon for sarnies, pasta and galettes, and ramen king Hakata Ippudo. And it’s a wrap!
