One of the best places for quality bits and bobs in central Tokyo
The Loft in Shibuya is a pretty huge place, covering over 6 floors. It's a little tricky to find if you're not familiar with the Shibuya area, but it's well worth the search.
I suppose Loft is a zakka specialist; zakka being what you could describe as bits and bobs. The basement floor of this branch is stocked full of stationary. If the stationary item you're looking for isn't to be found here, it doesn't exist.
Other goods in Loft run the gamut from toiletries and cosmetics through to rucksacks and travel bags. From daft party goods through to expensive watches.
I use Loft a lot when I need to buy people presents/gifts for people who've already got everything and/or I'm short on ideas of what to get.
This place is also a good resource for decent greetings cards.
For anyone that likes products from Nixon (like me), the Loft in Shibuya usually has a fairly decent selection of Nixon watches, and rucksacks.
The first floor of this Loft houses a special kind of limited-edition/themed section of goodies, sometime based around the release of a popular movie (they had a Star Wars section at one point).
Of course, you don't have to come here to buy. The browsing potential in this Loft is off the charts. You could spend ages in here before you see the light of day again.
Be warned; on the weekends it can be a bit frantic in here, especially in the popular sections, and there is the potential for pretty long queues to get served. As with any Loft (in my experience) the service is a bit cold.
