The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has opened a new shop offering an exciting lineup of modern and traditional original Tokyo souvenirs in Haneda Airport's international terminal, a travel hub for domestic and international tourists alike.
The shop sells an expansive range of high-quality souvenirs showcasing the best of what Tokyo has to offer. Merchandise includes traditional happy daruma dolls, maneki-neko lucky cat charms, jigsaw puzzles, and models of Tokyo Tower and Edo Castle, in addition to mugs, change purses, T-shirts, and more.
Open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. all year round, the shop is located in Edo Ko-ji, a shopping street styled after historic Tokyo on the fourth floor of the airport's international terminal. The shop's walls feature drawings of the Asakusa and Shibuya neighborhoods, areas symbolic of Tokyo's dynamic mix of cutting-edge modern culture and centuries-old tradition. Near the shop, there are plans to hold daruma-making lessons and workshops on origami and other aspects of Japanese culture.
The Tokyo Tokyo Official Souvenir Shop product lineup was created as part of the Tokyo Omiyage Project, an initiative that has seen the Tokyo Metropolitan Government team up with local businesses to develop over 50 souvenirs to date, spanning everything from traditional crafts to stationery and food. Products feature the Tokyo Tokyo Old meets New logo, which was created as part of the government's ongoing efforts to brand Tokyo as an attractive travel destination to both domestic and international tourists.© Business Wire
