It’s not strange to discover that people who visit Japan generally thrive on shopping here. Recently, foreign visitors have been permitted to shop “tax-free”, which makes this activity even more tempting. You just have to show your passport and you can save a few bucks!
Tokyo is obviously the Mecca of shopping in Japan but I wouldn’t underestimate Osaka. In this city, there are many hidden gems waiting to be discovered, and you can actually enjoy a relaxing and stress free shopping experience. In contrast, the metropolis’ big city hustle and bustle can be a bit overwhelming, even for diehard of shoppers like me.
