MADE IN PRISON
100-yen-shop is cheap and good? Yes, DAISO is all around the nation, but if you are finding some wickedly good quality with your each single yen paid well, please visit Fuchu Prison in Tokyo. Well, you don't need to commit some crime to visit here, actually if you did, you will be making yourself into the position of production line of these craftwork and furniture. Instead, surf www.e-capic.com or visit Fuchu on Keio Line (easy access from Shinjuku) to examine the quality of the articles for yourself. Best souvenir of your Japan trip can be found there.

Don't want to support those prisoners? Here's genuine non crime (but yet very commercial, meaning price higher) artisans shops.
Edo Shitamachi Traditional Crafts Museum : entrance free of charge

Edo Tokyo Museum Shop : shop itself has entrance free of charge

2k540 : located between Ueno and Akihabara

3331 : not far from 2k540

Marugoto Nippon : in Asakusa!

Taito Designers Village : in Taito-ku
You may also find Art in Asakusa useful. Indeed, Taito-ku where Asakusa and Ueno are located is one of the 23 districts of downtown Tokyo which designers, artists, architects are gathering. Cheaper than Roppongi, Shibuya, Shinjuku is one reason, also good combination with traditional culture still remaining well in Ueno, Asakusa, Yanaka of Taito-ku.
And this page has selected collections of traditional souvenir in Asakusa.
