 If you want to get cannabis in Tokyo, it’s still possible, but the prices are so high and quality isn’t good. The best bet is to go to Shibuya shopping center and look for Arabian or African people. They will probably help you, but the police know about them, so it’s risky. We don’t advise you to buy weed in Tokyo as you never know what can happen and you simply don’t want to end up in prison there.
