    Hi all,

    Anyone got any recommendations for a good ski shop close to Tokyo Station ?

    My ski bag backpack broke as i was checking in (it was old) but I don't really want to go too far from the station area before i head off to Illyama ... and also maybe slightly on purpose forgot my goggles (annoying smith interchangable lens circa 2013) so need some new ones

    Any assistance would be great

    Thanks

    There is none.
    Head to kanda area. Which is at most ten mins from Tokyo station.
    Stores open in four hours.

    Thought that maybe the case, lugging that broken backpack about wont be fun but at least its only 10 mins

    I guess i could also look for somewhere to check my bigger bag for an hour so, read that London sports is good

    Thanks
