Be sure to go to a Kinokinuya bookstore (try the one next to Takashimaya Times square (a big department store)in South Sinjuku and look at Japanese architecture and design magazines on the main floor. Expensive but worth it!
Yodobashi cameras and other big electronic stores have a huge selection of home appliances. Japanese fridges must be seen to be believed!. why electronic stores? because refrigerators, toilets/bidets, ceiling lights etc. all have electronic components and are operated by remote controls. I forgot where I saw great furniture, most likely on Omotesando and Aoyama. for furniture showrooms check:
have a look at Japanese newspapers on the Internet. They have ads for new condo buildings. the internet sites of these buildings are amazing. if you get one in English you will be able to find a map to their presentation centre.. Once in Tokyo ask the hotel staff to save you flyers on condos. The papers are full of them.
