Prefecture Shop

One of the most attractive shops you should visit is a 'Prefecture Shop.' Many prefectures, from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south, open respective stores in Tokyo.

 

N'ESPACE

One of these is 'N'ESPACE,' a shop which specializes in local delicacies from Niigata Prefecture in Omote-sando, Harajuku. Niigata is located on the Sea of Japan side of the main island, Honshu. It has an abundance of rice fields and fishing ports. So, Niigata is famous for its delicious rice, which also produces high-quality Japanese Sake, tasty confectioneries and rice crackers. Furthermore, Niigata is proud of its rich sea food and fish-based products, such as fish cakes and delicacies made of kelp, which are an essential part of traditional Japanese New Year's feasts.

 

Popular Foodstuffs

They will surely satisfy you and help you appreciate Japanese food culture. Some of the most popular foodstuffs for overseas visitors are 'Instant  Miso soup (it's authentic!)' and 'Citrus-and-Chili-flavored rice crackers (they go with beer!),' which are also good for souvenirs. Please find them!

 

A few minutes' walk from Omote-sando Station. Several minutes' walk from Harajuku Station and Meiji-jingu Shrine.

Even when it wasn't part of her duties, Masako helped me in finding and booking restaurants for my group, which consisted of vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

“ Tokyo Highlights ”

Excellent
8 months ago Traveler: Kate -   Tour Guide: MASAKO

Masako was our tour guide for Tokyo. Since we arrived from Canada the night before, we booked her for two short days (5 hours each) rather than one long and exhausting day. Over those days we covered most of the popular sites and Masako showed us how to use the subway system so we were confident to visit other places on our own. She provided us with a great introduction to Japanese history an...

“ Traveling with a kawai baby ”

Excellent
9 months ago Traveler: Jonatan -   Tour Guide: MASAKO

Msako was incredibly helpful in developing a flexible schedule. We traveled with a 14 month old baby and had to slow down quite a lot and go off the original proposal. We spent 12 days in Japan and had a great time. The tour we took with Masako helped make the rest of the trip go smoothly as she helped us figure out transportation and gave us a lot more confidence to explore.

We spent 3 very enjoyable days with Masako in Tokyo. In addition to going the extra mile, and organising a cooking class for us, she was always punctual, patient and flexible with our timing and interests. She is a very personable guide and shared a great deal of history and cultural interests with us. Thank you again so much Masako. We hope to meet you again someday.

1 year ago Traveler: Gerri -   Tour Guide: MASAKO

Masako was awesome! She arrived at our hotel promptly and helped us with rail passes and SUICA cards. As we visited the sights, she shared her knowledge of the history of Tokyo, which made the experiences more meaningful. She was very accommodating when we asked to adjust the walking pace and to stop for a brief walk through a specialty store. This is exactly what we wanted on a customized tou...
