Ginza gets new duty-free shop

The Tokyo district of Ginza has today (November 28th ) added another major duty-free shop to its ranks, with electronics retailer Laox presiding over the launch of its new store in the area earlier this morning.

According to the company, Ginza was chosen as a suitable location for the new emporium due to its convenience for foreign visitors to Japan, which Laox is expecting an influx of following the announcement that Tokyo will host the 2020 Olympics.

Tourists will be able to pick up a plethora of goods, choosing from a wide array of electronics such as top-of-the-range rice cookers and air filtration devices.

Traditional Japanese homeware including Nanbu Tekki ironware and Kiyomizu Yaki ceramics are also available.

Shoppers will be pleased to note that Japan's capital boasts several large entertainment districts that are home to a huge variety of emporiums and venders. Visit Shinjuku, Ginza or Roppongi Hills for the best shopping destinations in the city.
