On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:
Uniqlo: Your one stop shop for basics. They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts. UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but check out the special UT store in Harajuku.

Muji: Another favourite... Muji is all about minimalism and no-logos. Great for homewares, stationery, clothing, accessories and food.

Loft and Tokyu Hands: For those who know me well, you know that I am obsessed with stationery. Both Loft and Tokyu Hands have an amazing range of stationery and just lots of cool stuff!
Franc Franc: My favourite 'home' store - great furniture and lovely things for your place. Pics below from their Spring 2011 catalogue.
