Featuring all things Japanese pop and anime, this somewhat chaotic, albeit cheerful, shop is one of the few places where you can find middle-school girls in search of glittery stickers and Hello Kitty paraphernalia shopping in harmony with street-wear junkies browsing the latest styles. For those who don’t buy into Tokyo’s version of cutesy culture, T-shirts are Air Market’s biggest draw, with brands like Dweeb, Urban Arts Research & Marketing, and 2K lining the walls. There’s also a smattering of women’s sportswear, shoes, and handbags for sale, but beware: The staff is predominantly Japanese, and English is most definitely their second language.
