There is no place like this that you can just visit and have a glance of most of the special handcraft goods of Japan and also purchase them!
You may visit before you go around so you will have an idea of what you would like to take home OR you can be here just before you got back home for a last minute but good quality souvenirs.
Each region, area, village have special handmade goods and to all these variety you can also learn how they evolved during the 2000 years history.

I visited here for just a research, but I found so many beautiful craft works from all over Japan. There are no place like here which sells so many good souvenirs with great quality.

I was specifically looking for the Japanese woodcraft from Hakone. This was the only place I could find it. I didn't have time to actually travel to Hakone (the selection there is MUCH better) but I found what I was looking for. They were very helpful, and if you are a tourist and show your passport it's tax free. (Not sure of any minimum/maximum amounts) Not far from the subway as you head towards the Canadian Embassy. Definitely top notch items.

Don't look for crafts bargains here; look for beauty. It's worth a visit even if you don't buy anything. And if you do want to buy something, you will find knowledgeable, friendly staff to help you choose from an amazing selection of stunning crafts items from all over Japan.

If you're not traveling extensively in Japan, and even if you are, you'll find specialties from throughout the country. Nearly everything is traditionally and/or hand-crafted, and we found many items we had not see before. The staff is helpful, the gift wrapping lovely, and the merchandise well-made. A huge plus is the daily (I think) demonstrations of handicrafts, some which you can join in. The artists are from various regions of Japan, and are always really friendly and eager to share their work.
