Globe Specs

1-7-9 Jinnan Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan
confirm location data is accurate?
Large selection, impeccable service - Globe Specs is one of the best eyeglass stores in Tokyo. With its impressive offerings, this store carries frames from both Japanese and foreign brands, in addition to occasionally featuring store branded collaborations with various eyeglass producers.

Owner Okada (who can be seen working any day of the week) spent years living in New York City and his obsession with Classic Americana is evident as you wander through the store. All of the staff speak English and are extremely helpful when providing suggestions for frames to suit your face type and personal style.

Whether you're a seasoned Tokyoite or just passing through, do yourself a favor and stop by if you're in the market for a new pair of glasses.

What is Bitmaps?

Bitmaps is a website designed to document noteworthy locations around the globe through a wiki-style format. The concept is to serve as an online guidebook that can be updated on-the-fly and whose goal is to share niche content by subject matter experts across different areas of interest. There is no rating system: every location that appears on the map is deemed worthwhile to visit by the contributor community - it could be end up being the highlight of your next trip or a hidden gem just around the corner.

As content updates are controlled in an open format, creation and editing of the data is limited to contributor members. All users, however, are able to browse the entire catalog of content, apply tags and upload images of locations and even create custom maps to which their own notes can be added and then shared.

How can I contribute?

The ability to create and edit content is limited to users with Contributor accounts, which will be provisioned through a referral system. Ability to contribute may be opened to all users in the future, however in order to control content quality for the time being, membership is currently closed.
