Your Shopping Experience Starts from Tokyo Station

Kitkat Chocolatory Tokyo Station

What would you do if you only have few more hours before depart to Narita or Haneda airport? Will you spend the last hours in Tokyo for pictures taking or spending last yen you have in your pocket? I am more on the second option: spending the last yen without getting panic about heading to the airport.

Tokyo station is not only intercity railway station but it is also a shopping arcade. You can find many things inside the station from restaurants, clothes, shoes, souvenirs and KitKat counter.

In winter time, KitKat counter offers seasonal chocolate such as chili, dark chocolate, cheese and mactha (green tea). It is worth bringing back to your home country. Because of limited stock, one can only purchase three KitKat in a day. The KitKat price is slightly more expensive than those in supermarket. KitKat counter is located in Daimaru department store.
