Where to buy socks in Japan

Socks. We all need em.
Socks in Japanese is Kutsushita (靴下) And in Japan there  are in my opinion 
3 main popular kinds of socks

1. Nice Japanese socks
2. Happy socks from Sweden
3. Brand name socks.

I would LOVE to show you pictures of nice Japanese socks.....but I actually no longer have any because they worn out and had holes in them and I had to throw them away....and I seem to be suffering from another issue that many people have, the washer ate them.

So INSTEAD I will give you  the link to the website of a major Japanese brand, Tabio

Another famous brand that is good is Fukuske

If you want to know where I personally shop for Japanese socks. 
Shinagawa station, Atre store, there is a place to buy socks and that is specifically where I always buy them.

Now I don't have any Japanese socks to show you but I still got plenty of Tights. Tights in Japan are very common, its typical for a woman to wear tights instead of a full bear leg. We have lots of very very thin almost invisible tights that you can't even notice, girls love them because it makes their skin look nice.

I no longer wear these for religious purposes, but I have plenty of non see through coloured ones.

Japanese tights generally, in proper stores (like Marui  (〇1〇1)) Will be arranged by THICKNESS. This is nice but the issue is, I feel tights in Canada, though generally made from cheaper looking material, have longer shelf life, cheaper in price and come in more thicker material.

Price in Japan for tights, does not matter. ALL TIGHTS RIP, FAST!
Those yellow Vivienne Westwood ones above, yeah they got a hole in them. From day 1.

Next we have Happy socks.
This is a Swedish brand that is found in a lot of department stores in Japan.

I think these socks are really good quality and come in fun colours. The happy socks I had lasted a long time.

Last I want to talk about brand name socks, and where to get them. Now if you are thinking "but I want affordable socks!!!".  Don't worry.  Brand name socks, are actually around the same price, as regular socks.

The socks I am wearing are Armani. Armani socks range from 10-25$, but mostly under 15. That is not a lot, as its the price for pretty much all socks I buy :/.

Even though I only have Armani, I will tell you exactly where to get a lot of brand name socks in one place.

For Tokyo people.
Ikebukuro, Seibu department store. 5th floor mens department.

Theres a corner on that floor for socks.

My feet are size 23.5, but these socks are said to fit 25-27cm, but they fit me 100% perfect.
Armani doesn't make ladies socks, but the mens socks will be fine for you ladies.

This floor sells mens underwear and socks, all in same area (because its for suits, for workers).

Theres lots of big brand name socks and they are not expensive at all. So enjoy ^^

If anyone else lives in Japan and has a favorite place to shop for socks please tell me in the comments ^^

I end this blog post with a picture of me trying to show off the Armani gloves I have for winter. I am wearing a Armani hijab that was a present from one of my best friends. For those who know me are probably wondering

BUT MIRA!!! you LOVE Louis Vuitton! don't cheat!!!
Lol. Don't worry.  If Louis Vuitton made socks, I would be the first in line to buy them.


  1. I admire this article for the well-researched content and excellent wording. I got so involved in this material that I couldn’t stop reading. I am impressed with your work and skill. Thank you so much. socks business plan

  2. There are lots of sock types that you can create and sell for a profit. Some of these are simple; others are quite complicated. The idea is to just go ahead and create socks that look nice and which stand out of the crowd. While doing that seems and feels a bit complicated, it’s not as tricky as you can imagine right away. custom sock business
