When browsing the smaller shopping streets in the big cities, I occasionally come across shops for Shogi and Go, they might have themed chess sets in those shops as well, but I cannot give you an address. Your best bet is to try in the country you live in or buy it on the Internet, IMO.

You'll find a great Japanese Themed Chess Set at www.CheckmateChessSets.com in the 'Music and Cultural' section!

Once you arrive at Tokyo ask people where is the best place to find "Shogi", not "Japanese chess" of the type you are interested in.

People will not understand "Japanese chess" because Shogi has much longer history than chess and both Shogi and Chess have their origin in China.

And do not go to serious shops since they do not treat that kind of shogi set.
