MujiFlagship

One of my first stops when I get to Tokyo is the MUJI flagship in Marunouchi. While Muji has recently opened stores in New York and their affordable, cleanly designed wares have been available for a while now through the MoMA Design Store in the States, our selection of the stuff pales in comparison to what's available at this three story Muji mothership. You can get everything from potted plants, to folding bicycles, to watches, to radios, all with that distinctively non-distinct aesthetic. It makes me wish I brought an empty suitcase. Good thing you can get those here too.

I'm sure MUJI Beef Stew beats Dinty Moore.

MujiBikes

I'm not endorsing bringing a bike home from Tokyo, but they do have have smart folding bikes with cool matte finishes that wouldn't be difficult to check on your return flight.

MujiGlasses

If you're into chunky plastic frames, they have dozens for around $100.

MujiChips

All that and, yes, bags of chips.—kevin sintumuang
