A one stop shop for just about everything
A favorite place of mine to shop are Don Quixote stores. They've also been super popular spots for visiting friends and family to stop into - in part because of the 8% sales tax that is waived if you're here for less than 6 months as a tourist.
Don Quixote stores literally have a little bit of everything to buy. Whether it's some groceries, beer/wine/spirits, clothing, wacky socks (these are a souvenir favorite!) beauty products, technology/electronics...you can find just about anything you need here. Another really convenient thing are the opening hours here. A lot of the closer inner city stores are 24/7 - my former local store in the Tokyo suburbs was only closed from 5am-9am daily (I guess for stocktake purposes!) so it was handy for that reason too.
One of my favorite things here are the fresh yakiimo that my store sold in the cooler months - wish they sold them year round. So tasty!
