where can i find gifts

kunoichi kunoichi, Living in Japan

It depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for traditional crafts for souvenir, go for souvenir shops in Tokyo Station, Tokyo Sky Tree, etc.Locals look for gifts in many places but Tokyu Hands or Loft have different kind of products so it is easy to find something nice.

where can i buy cheap japanese candy in tokyo , ima talking about the japanese kit and exotic candy.

kunoichi kunoichi, Living in Japan

Donki (famous discount store) or Okashi no Machioka (おかしのまちおか) sells snacks at cheap prices. I'm not sure what you are looking for by saying "exotic candy" but if you are looking for something like Neru Neru Nerune (ねるねるねるね), you can find in supermarkets. Those are usually for kids so you have to...

What are some old town neighborhoods that are good to visit in Tokyo? We are already planning on visiting Kawagoe, Yanesen,and Tateishi. We like shopping at mom and pop shops.

Sosuke Kimura Sosuke Kimura, Living in Japan

I like small shops also! Kawagoe and Yanesen are beautiful places. Tateishi is more deep spot.  If you like small Izakaya restaurants (like a pub), my recommendations are Nakano and Asakusa hoppy street. The area has "Yokocho". Yokocho has many mom-and-pop Izakaya restaurants. About YOKOCH...

Best place(s) to shop like a "local" in Tokyo?

Mari Takahashi Mari Takahashi, Living in Japan

I am a local and I often go to Shinjuku, Shibuya, and Yurakucho to shop for clothes, bag, shoes, and cosmetics. Specific department stores would be LUMINE, Seibu, Mitsukoshi, Marui, etc. When I was a teenager, I used to visit Harajuku every weekend. I loved walking around Takeshita Street and Ura...

Norman Norman, Lived in Japan

I would say that the Shibuya is the place for the clothes (for young generation). And Ginza Mitsukoshi is for the groceries. Kinokuniya for the books and Akihabara is for the electrical appliances. I would recommend to targeting what you need, and then find the best place where the locals shop.

Where is the best arcade in Tokyo?

Norman Norman, Lived in Japan

There are so many arcades in Tokyo! Basically, they are similar and you can feel the 50's from the buildings and antique design. Asakusa Shin-Nakamise (浅草 新仲見世商店街)  could be fun to visit! In addition, it's not completely "arcade", but I would recommend visiting Ameya-Yokocho (アメ横). It's not like ...
