I am heading for Japan for the first time in Feburary. My friends have already checked out some of the fabric stores advertised as the Tokyo garment district and found the selection nothing different than home (Western Washington) and the prices higher.
I'd really like to find something special while I am there. Anyone have "can't miss" stores to visit?

Go to Bunka Fashion College to pick up sewing and drafting notions! Here's my blog post from 2010 when I was in Tokyo.

Fabric district in Tokyo. Also look for a store called Tomato. It's more like a huge multi story building that is legendary. Also here's a prior thread about this.

Thank you both very much! I went to the prior thread and it is extremely helpful. I didn't know this had already been discussed.
