Japan Vintage Online Shopping Stuff
Online Shopping for Pre-loved Fashion in Japan
Japan, without a doubt, is one of the most fashionable places you can find yourself. Keeping up with the Japanese in terms of fashion can put a dent in your wallet—but it doesn’t have to. Secondhand online shopping for both designer and fast fashion is booming at the moment, which means you’ve got an abundance of choice right at your fingertips, literally.
Tokyo is fashion conscious, and thrifting makes perfect sense. Whether one is hunting for vintage Americana, Yohji Yamamoto or Comme Des Garcons, goofy ‘80s relics or haute couture castoffs, Shimokitazawa is the place to be. Harajuku and Shibuya might have greater name recognition beyond the city, but for young hip Tokyoites, Shimokitazawa is the hipster prefect place.
Shimokitazawa is just a piece of stops from the heart of Tokyo but features you can have a leisurely and relaxing time. It's a great area to get lost and to explore.
Territory for vintage
Compared to other countries, department stores in Japan have fared remarkably well, even as online shopping at their precarious economy makes the omotenashi (Japanese hospitality and customer service) shopping experience less of a priority for most.
Among the old-guard that can sync with current trends is none other than Mitsukoshi, Japan’s oldest store and Isetan, one the country’s most influential ones. Both have invited cult select shop Dept into its halls for a popup that brings the Meguro boutique’s second-hand glamour to Isetan in Shinjuku and Mitsukoshi Ginza.
The lineup of vintage, remade and original items is very much representative of not only fashionista style, but also, increasingly, the average person’s wardrobe.

Without a doubt, Japan is always one of the most fashionable places you can find yourself. Keeping up with the Japanese in terms of fashion can put a dent in your wallet.

Many of you are familiar with Ragtag, a popular high-end pre-owned fashion chain. But if you’re looking for something specific, it might be a smarter choice to browse the 250,000 items online than search through all its brick-and-mortar stores.
Mercari has taken the country by storm and Japanese people are selling all sorts of items, including designer shoes, bags and fashion directly from user to user via this flea market platform. It offers search functions that can narrow down your hunt by brand, category and size, but the easiest way is to enter search keywords. Users rate each other, so sellers are very responsive to questions posted in the comment section of items for sale. Descriptions are usually very detailed, including measurements and materials, which gives you the confidence to shop online. Shipping varies, but is usually included.

Overall Japanese people usually treat their goods with great care and often sell new or good-as-new items online with a discount, which makes secondhand shopping in Japan a no-brainer. Beware, from now on all your commutes will be spent swipe-hunting for that designer piece you always wanted!
