Jul 23, 2018

Most tourists don’t want to go back home without picking up some cute and detailed Japanese goods and souvenirs to remember their trip by. In this article, we would like to introduce you to some shops inside the Shinjuku Mylord department store where you can buy some Japanese souvenirs. Household goods made in Japan are the perfect souvenir for your friends and loved ones, and will hopefully make their day to day life a little more wonderful.

There are four shops that sell Japanese souvenirs on Mosaic Street, a street that runs from Shinjuku Station’s West Exit to South Exit. Let’s go and check them out!


The first shop we would like to introduce is located right by the Shinjuku Station West Exit entrance to Mosaic Street. If you’re looking for traditional Japanese souvenirs, this is the place! They offer hand towels and other daily goods that mix traditional Japanese design with modern styling for undeniably high-quality goods and gifts.

Koiki was born out of the desire to express the natural beauty and customs of Japan, so you can certainly find goods that will make your daily life a little more beautiful at this shop.

Makanai Cosme

On the same side of the street as Koiki you will find Makanai Cosme, a Japanese cosmetics brand with a white rabbit logo. Makanai Cosme was originally part of Yoshitaka Kinpaku Honpo (Yoshitaka’s Gold Leaf Shop), which was founded in 1899 in in Kanazawa City in Ishikawa Prefecture.

The women who worked in extremely dry and hot conditions making the gold leaves at the Yoshitaka factory were worried about the condition of their skin. Cosmetics that were gentle on the skin started to be handmade using Japanese ingredients (including konnyaku jelly, washi paper, rice bran, silk, soy beans, brown sugar and of course gold leaves) found in the homes of the workers.

These days, these cosmetics are sold not only domestically but also overseas, and are popular with women of all ages. These cosmetics are highly recommended for those looking for cosmetics made with natural ingredients.
