You should really check out Asakusabashi on the Sobu or Asakusa line.  It's one stop from Akihabara (Sobu).

The area is full of different shops for all your art supplies.  I've come across at least five bead shops within three minutes.

Another area a friend recommended is Kagurazaka (Tozai line).  There seems to be a few art and paper shops there.

If they're too far or you don't have a chance to go there, Tokyu Hands has always been good.

Hopfully that helps.

I'd suggest Tokyu hands, loft and Okadaya (in Shinjuku, next to Studio Alta)

the best hobby/craft store in tokyo has to be yuzawaya. u can check out their website http://www.yuzawaya.co.jp/ if u can read japanese.

they sell everything from fabrics, miniature figurines to all sorts of super kawaii rubber stamps, and so on. much larger variety and more specialized than tokyu hands. i think there are a few outlets, but i go to the one in western tokyo, at kichijoji, just next to the jr station. its a huge store, about 6 storeys? i can spend a whole afternoon there shopping. XD

miss that shop a lot. we need one of it in singapore too!
