What should I buy in Japan

kunoichi kunoichi, Living in Japan

Many people buy Kit Kat :) There are many unique flavors (like Japanese sake, matcha, red bean, etc) only available in Japan. All Japanese printed items are really lovely such as Japanese paper, origami, handkerchief, small bag, etc. Japanese cosmetics are also popular as souvenir, too.

where can i buy anime related stuff

leo leo, Living in Japan

It depends on what kind of genre you're looking for. It's anime for boys, you should go to Akihabara. For girls, Ikebukuro would be better. In any case, the shop called Animate has plenty of lineups. Besides Akihabara and Ikebukuro, the shops are also in Shinjuku and Shibuya.

Mari Takahashi Mari Takahashi, Living in Japan

I have never checked the DUTY FREE store's selection, but major department stores (such as Isetan and Takashimaya in Shinjuku or Mitsukoshi in Ginza) offers TAX FREE service for foreigners. Also, I don't think IPSA does not sell in Narita. I guess it is safer to purchase at department stores. Alt...
