These are my 6 recommendation to shop something interesting/unique/cute/cool Japanese-y things.
Nakamise street @Asakusa
Asakusa is kind of must-visit place if you visit Japan.
You can enjoy traditional Japanese temple and shopping. This place has been so loved by all Japanese too.
Tokyo Soramachi @Tokyo Skytree
At the base of Tokyo Skytree, there is vast indoor shopping complex.
About 10-15min walk from Asakusa area.

Tokyo Character street @Tokyo station
Tokyo station is also one of the greatest shopping spot. If you have plan to use Tokyo station on your itinerary, I suggest to come earlier 1~2 hour before for shopping around.
Just what you should know is that it might be very crowded on the weekend or holiday season.

Hakuhinkan Toy park @Ginza
One of the oldest and greatest toy store in Japan. Great selection toys are here, and all staffs are always kind.
Kiddy Land Harajuku @Omotesando
It’s also well-known toy store in Omotesando/Harajuku.
Recommend for school kids, would be hard for family with baby stroller as this store is compact and isles are very narrow.
DECKS Tokyo Beach @Odaiba
If you visit Odaiba area, you might find something interesting from this jumble.
