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.

Where should I buy the skin care of Japanese brand such as Shu uemura and IPSA? Between in department store and duty free at the airport (Narita)?

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...

For munafie, cosmetics (KATE, MAJORICA MAJORCA, Fasio, VISSE, etc) try looking one of drug stores. Matsumoto Kiyoshi, Daikokiya, Tsuruha, Papas, etc. Donna probably sells those. For SK II, head to department stores such as Isetan or Takashimaya in Shinjuku.

how much is yukata rental in osaka?

kunoichi kunoichi, Living in Japan

I don't know any particular rental yukata shop in Osaka, but when I rented in Kamakura, it costed ¥4,000 minimum. (The cost depends on which print you choose and what kind of hair you want to set, etc) I think the price is about the same.
