If you are looking for a place to do some late night shopping in Tokyo, look no further. Don Quijote, sometimes referred to as DONKI, is the ultimate department store in Japan.
If you combined Target, Costco, Toys R Us, and a hint of naughtiness, and put them in the same building, you will have yourself a typical Don Quijote store.
Luckily for you, the popular district of Shibuya is the home to the biggest Don Quijote in Japan. A 7-story building with all various kinds of merchandise, visitors can spend hours (maybe even days) walking down the isles and discovering unique Japanese items.
I specifically loved the aisle for costumes. Though I visited in May, a month nowhere near Halloween, there were aisles dedicated to various costumes. Some of them were your typical ones such as a nurse or a ghost costume, but if you venture deeper into the aisle you will find strange costumes of a sumo wrestler, a Taoist (?), a Teletubby (?), and much more.
Honestly, the section is full of fun and laughter, the perfect place to bring your friends for some silly shenanigans. The Don Quijotes all operate 24/7, which means the only thing that is stopping you from shopping all night in Tokyo is… you yourself.
Another great thing about DONKI is its affordable prices. If you need a place to purchase some unique and cheap souvenirs in Tokyo, Don Quijote is the perfect place for you!
