In recent years, there has also been huge growth in the natural foods scene, with supermarkets like Natural House offering lots of organic produce (though there's plenty of room for more variety....please!!) as well as pasta, boxes and canned goods, and daily life goods like shampoo and detergent. Plus there are many more smaller organic food places, where we usually shop. There are probably hundreds of these in Tokyo, and they are of the goodness.
Then you have farmer's markets. They pop up on the weekends. One of the nicest is in Shibuya, just down the road from Shibuya station. In toy geek terms, it's just a few minutes walk from Billiken Gallery.
The market (open on weekends, with vendors wrapping up in the late afternoon) is a great place to stroll around, sample fresh produce, grab a bite, and listen to live music. Here are some shots.
