Big Feet need Big Shoes and Japan is full of shops selling footwear, but where are the large sizes? We are out to help you in your search for footwear to cover those large feet of yours.

Tokyo, Gotanda Station

(Yamanote Line)

Big B in Tokyo, near Gotanda Station comes recommended by one of our readers. He has very large feet - size 33! He can get footwear at Big B.

You can see Big B from the platform of the Yamanote Line. While in Gotanda, be sure to check out Tokyo`s best English book store, Good Day Books!

912 Shop

Has large sized shoes for women and you can order online.

Tokyo, Shinjuku

For a wide selection of shoes at reasonable prices, Ten on the west of Shinjuku is a good for both women and men.

If you live outside of the Kanto area, you can order from Ten href=""> online.

Ordering online from stores outside of Japan is risky, due to the leather tax of 30%. Right after the new tax was enacted but unbeknownst to me, I ended up paying a pretty penny for the shoes I had ordered online from LL Bean.

Kutsu no Hikari

(In Tokyo - Shinjuku 5 Chome,Okachimachi and in Kawasaki, Kanagawa)Offers larger sized shoes for men. You can order online if you live

href=""> outside of Kanto.

Gotemba, Shizuoka

The Gotemba Outlet Mall, carries large sized sports shoes in some of their sports shops like addidas. The prices are pretty reasonable for Japan too. Gotemba is a nice town in a beautiful area of Japan, right next to
