The first airport-style duty-free shop in honshu (the main island) has opened on January 27, in Ginza, Tokyo, on the 8F of Ginza Mitsukoshi department store.
The difference of Japan Duty Free GINZA from other tax-free shops is that this is an “airport-style duty-free shop”. On top of consumption taxes, customers are offered liquor and tobacco free of their respective taxes, luxurious items such as apparel and bags from high brands, watches, and cosmetics free of import tariff, just like when shopping in duty free shops in the airport.
Japan Duty Free GINZA is divided into roughly 5 sections; Cosmetics (selected cosmetic brands shops from both Japan and overseas), Luxury (popular luxury brands), The 800 hands Japanese Beauty (traditional Japanese craft shops), Watches, and Cigarettes and Liquor.
To be eligible for duty-free shopping at Japan Duty Free GINZA, a shopper needs to present his/her passport and the air ticket (for flights departing within one month from the day after) to register at the reception counter. Once shopping and payment is done, a voucher will be given to the shopper, which can be exchanged for the items at pick-up counters located after the passport control at either Haneda or Narita airport.
