I urgently need 2 duvets as I'm having guests next week.
Anybody knows where I can get duvets at a reasonable price, other than Tokyu Hands, in Tokyo?
Also, has anyone tried Tokyu Hands' Duvets and found them satisfactory?
Many thanks, Liat Friedman

I bought my daughter a new single duvet from Costco for around Y7,000. Don't know what you pay for them in Japanese stores but I thought this was good value compared to home.
It is so cosy that my husband wants me to go back and get one for us!

BIC Camera sells down duvets. I got mine at the BIC camera in Ikebukuro (Seibu side of station) about 12 years ago and love it! BIC camera has a big store in the old Sogo Department store building at Yurakucho station (between Tokyo station and Ginza sort of). These cost a bit more than a polyester filled duvet, but if no one has any allergies to down, they are so warm and cozy.
P.S. Muji and Aeon stores also maybe have these items.

Liat, have you considered rental? There are numerous kashi-buton services that rent futons to lay on, futons to coverf on, pillows, blanket and linen etc. They will deliver it to your home and collect it, so it won't take space nor your washing time. One set may cost around 3000 yen/night, which of course may not be worth it if your guests are staying for a long time.
I found a Japanese language site that lists several services nation wide. Tokyo starts from the 5th from the top of the list. I do hope some of these services speak and accept your language!
