Shopping diaper/nappy in Ginza, Tokyo – Store list –
When you travel with baby, buying diaper locally is very helpful to reduce your luggage.
Basically you can get baby diaper at supermarket or drug store easily everywhere in Japan, but speaking of Ginza city, it’s hard to find baby diaper selling store even for Japanese… I guess it’s because parents don’t generally shop diaper in this area and space taker diapers are not usually on shelf for space reason.
So here is baby diaper store list in Ginza area by my research – for mom & dad visiting or staying Ginza.
