Only words I know in Japanese are > suki-yaki , wasabi , teriyaki , kappa maki ( I eat them )

Japan seems to be a hot topic right now so here's what I found about Tokyo's shops .
Text is taken form and I used spanish translator to translate this text from spanish to english for you to read.
Enjoy !

If I speak of a city of reference at the time of perderte between thousand stores and to discover true pieces of collector, insurance that to the mind of anyone shopping-addict come images to him from the SoHo of New York, the Rive Gauche of Paris or Notting Hill in London. But no. I speak of Tokyo.
The Japanese capital has become referring an essential one at the time of speaking fashionable. The tendencies see in their streets before in no other site of the world. The perception of the fashion is much more ample and important that in any European capital and the taste, in most of the cases, is assured. There Perhaps for that reason Prada decided to erect its more important store at world-wide level, created by the office Herzog & of Meuron?
Two are the main zones of purchases: Ginza and Shibuya.
Ginza is classic high class zone, where you will be able to find the companies most important. From Lanvin to Salvatore Ferragamo (with a building-tower decorated with lights of colors), Cartier, Tiffany, Bulgari, Louis Vuitton or the spectacular store of Chanel, with a facade-screen where different projections from the company/signature can be seen. You either do not lose department store that there are in the street, like exclusive the Mitshukosi. A peculiar data. So it is the amount of light of the street at night that, if beams a photo, does not jump the flash. In addition, in that classic dispute between technology and tradition that is Japan, also you will find small stores where they buy Japanese the complements for its elegant kimonos.

Shibuya is the district trendy. By its narrow and coquetas streets (in contrast with those of Ginza), you will find the stores of Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, DKNY, Ralph Lauren and, even, American Apparel. Also it is perfect to find designers national (Comme DES Garçons, Comme ça, Miharayasuhiro…) as well as articles vintage. In the main street, Omotesando, is where they are located most of the great companies, like Dior with a building of white light, Bottega Veneta, or Loewe, in a spectacular iron building.
But they are two companies those that call the attention in the district. The buildings of Tod' s and Prada in Omotesando have been able by own right to appear between the essential ones of Tokyo. The spectacular outer configuration of both (first it simulates a forest and the second is resembled a mineral) leaves to step a futurist decoration, in the case of Prada, or to a giant store with an attic destined to exhibitions, Tod' s. Two stores museum that perfectly summarize the consumista spirit of exquisite taste that turns to Japan a country reference for the fashion. In order to point in shopping guide.

The translation is not the best , hope you understand .

Ok , back to my exam.
