Japan (and it’s shopping) is known for the variety that it offers. From the posh style of Roppongi and Omotesando to the helter skelter mania of Shibuya and Harajuku there is sure to be something that will either be a keepsake or a witty and hysterical souvenir for later. Even though there are the illustrious shopping districts and the notorious shops that they house, that is not to say that one should overlook the longstanding mainstay brands that Japan has to offer. La Casta, which is just a few streets to the West of the Omotesando train station, offers a wide variety of beauty products that will pamper you. The La Casta began its business in France and aims to produce products that can be used by professionals and at home as well as to use ingredients that are not too harsh on the skin so anyone can use their products. But before you begin to think that La Casta only offers your grandmother’s beauty products, think again.
La Casta is all about making you beautiful with every kind of beauty product conceived by man. They offer not only skin and facial moisturizers, but a cornucopia of shampoos, various skin elixirs, and have recently started a line of massage and aromatic oils. Aside from the everyday products, La Casta also dips into the pop-culture scene with limited edition products from Sanrio. Who wouldn’t want a My Melody bath products set?
If you are not able to make it to the Omotesando branch there is no need to fret for La Casta is also easily found in most department stores which is also easily found within most major train stations (a thankful nod to Japan’s infrastructure). Be sure to seek out La Casta whenever and how ever you can!
