Standing tall at 7 stories high, LAOX is a Chinese-owned Duty Free Shop (tax-free shop) within Akihabara that specializes in selling…everything, and for excellent prices! These shops particularly cater to tourists as the prices are cheap, and many useful items are sold (such as cameras, computers, suitcases, bags, watches, medicine, and countless other items).
The great thing about LAOX is that it is extremely foreigner-friendly. The staff at this store, from what I could tell, was composed of English, Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese speakers. But anyone from any country can find help in this Duty Free Shop, you only need to ask.
Outside of household and vacation necessities, LAOX carries an ample amount of souvenirs – from wall scrolls to kimonos (traditional Japanese clothing) to oriental fans… and the list goes on.
If you’re looking for “some place that sells everything”, then LAOX is just the right store for you to visit. Check it out!
