Japan can be a place for good bargains on different brands like Louis Vuitton, Rolex, Hermès, Gucci and several other high end manufacturers at different locations all over the city. Louis Vuitton Luxury Sales Tokyo.Pawn shops are common, they offer tax free shopping and are as everything in Japan well organized.
Here is photos from a charity event that is hold twice every year by different pawn shops. The event is held at Ryutsu Center. Getting there from central Tokyo by the Tokyo Monorail is the most convenient way. Make sure to bring your passport for tax free shopping. Both cash (Yen) and major international credit cards can be used.
Take the Monorail from Hamamatsucho station and exit on Ryutsu Center Station. For this event the first two people in line came at 11 pm. the day before. That was too early. If you are there around 8 a.m. I expect you will have a reasonable place in the line. Warm clothes for waiting outside can be smart and some snacks to eat, the doors open at 9:30 am.
Different luxury items are up for sale, watches, handbags and clothes. Expect a long line and the best products gone if you come in late, there is hundreds of people looking for a bargain.
The line at 8 am, well organized and ready for lots of more people.
Here we are passing 9 am and the line has grown.
She came prepared with a chair and while waiting she read about the different offers. A few minutes later she took her medicine and was ready for the sales.
Shortly after 9 am a large group of security guards arrived to control the line and keep people from jumping the line.
All goods are located upstairs on the second floor, the different sections are closed off so you need to decide where to try your luck first. If you go out of one section you might have to wait in line inside for the next section. The area with handbags are most popular.
General rules on the back of the leaflet, I do not know how many minutes it took before the first one was broken.
When the doors open there is several hundred in line.
All bargains is upstairs and the two women in front of me had been here before and shared good advice on where to go and what to see.
Bags was the most popular items and sharp elbows are needed.

People grab as many as they can.
Before holding on and sorting them out in a more quiet area, the ones that are left behind ends up on the table again.
Watches in all price ranges, for watches priced over 100.0000 Yen there is a separate display.
The bags are spread over two tables, more high end bags like Hermès are behind counters where you can check the condition and try them. For this Louis Vuitton Luxury Sales Tokyo you need you patience and keep your calm when facing shoppers more desperate than you.
Back to Roppingi again after a busy morning on sales.
The sales was a fun experience, people were excited over the chance to find bargains. However the prices are almost the same and in some cases higher than the ones you will find in Pawn Shops around the city. The only advantage in coming to this sale is finding a big selection in one place instead of traveling around the city checking different shops and it is for charity. On the downside you need to be prepared for some Kung Fu fighting.

You can click the “location” link and see in Google Maps the location of the different shops around the city. For watches the best area would be Nakano. Go to Nakano station, take the north exit and walk straight ahead towards Nakano Broadway.
