Although Today’s Special has several locations (Shibuya, Shinjuku, Hibiya, and even Kyoto and Kobe), the stylish Jiyugaoka branch is our favourite. The theme of the store is ‘Food and Living DIY’, and walking into the shop really does feel like stepping into your dream kitchen, complete with a long dining table and an abundance of herbs and plants.
Today’s Special is filled with local and imported gourmet food, kitchenware, stationery and skincare – don’t forget to check out the seasonal corner as well. The shop regularly hosts workshops, especially the baking ones in collaboration with other brands, which often feature seasonal and organic ingredients. Bonus: the third floor is a café, so after your shopping spree you can refuel on comfort food (and even cocktails).
