We left early in the morning to tackle the Ginza area. We arrived by taxi and were dropped off at the entrance of the Hakuhinkan Toy Store. Since we had roughly an hour until the store opened we decided to walk the street and enjoy some shopping.
We stopped to gaze into the Nissan Gallery to check out the latest model of electric car on display in the showroom.
I was over-the-moon excited to check out the 3 story Muji store located inside the Mitsukoshi department store. The store has been one of my favorites since SCS Daddy and I lived in Japan over 10 years ago. 

Once we finished loading up the stroller with shopping bags we headed over to our original destination, the Hakuhinkan Toy Park.
The four story toy store did not disappoint.  Even SCS Dad and I got into the fun trying out all the new kids gadgets.  
Sam got to go fishing, ride rocking horses, fly electronic helicopters, play electric violins, and watch electric toy cars zip around a race track! 
This was also a perfect place to pick up unique scriveners for our kiddy friends back home. They also have baby gear so if you forget something at home or lose something you can usually pick it up here. They have loads of gear: baby bath tubs, sippy cups, baby carriers, Sophie the Giraffe, pacifiers, and even the Bumbo Seat.



After the toy store we were hungry and set out to find food. The Japanese restaurant across the street looked enticing so we headed over.   
The food was delicious, they had high chairs, allowed us to stow our collapsed stroller at the reception desk, and had children size utensils and meals.
