Any item in particular you are looking for?

I know there's one at Oimachi Station, directly next to the station, so hard to miss.

From JR Shinjuku Station, take the SAIKYO Line direct to Oimachi Station (look for trains marked for "SHINKIBA") . The Saikyo Line becomes the Rinkai Line at Osaki station.

It's 15 minutes direct and costs 360yen which is the best way. You can do it for a little cheaper (210 yen) but requires you to make a transfer.

Next to the station:   http://g.co/maps/fyqav

I believe the Oimachi station is the closest one. There is also one at Kameari Station that's a little further away.

Thankyou so much, you really are a Japan expert.

i was just looking for a Dept shop that wasn't as pricey as Takashimiya- ya and Isetan.

Really like Japanese homewares, kitchen things etc.

Thanks again,

Michelle

You might take the Chuo line to train to Ogikubo, as there is a Seiyu store with Lumine by the station. Oimachi is a bit far away than Ogikubo, I think. If you want to try Oimachi direction, there is a fairly good AEON store in Shinagawa Seaside, which is one station from Oimachi.

Then, you should go to Kappabasji Kitchen Town.

Thankyou.

I will go to Oimachi and Shinagawa.

Could you possibly help me with some places to eat around Shinjuku?

Staying at the Century Southern Tower and looking for Good kushi katsu place

where you can sit at the counter and order omakase course and other places, like Izakaya etc where Japanese locals go, not tourists. my Japanese is not bad, so they don't have to have english menus.

Thanks,

Michelle

Excellent ! Kappabashi sounds wounderful.

is there other things to do around Ueno as well?

The only thing I know is Ueno Zoo.

Thanks,

Michelle

Asakusa and Ueno are close to Kappabashi. There are lot of things to see there. I highly recommend Sensoji and Ameyoko:

Try this melon-pan in Asakusa. They are so yummy!
