    Hi, welcome to Tokyo. The best art store I've ever found is called Sekaido, there are several outlets but the one I go to is in Shinjuku 3-chome. It has many floors and will have pretty much anything you need.
    http://www.sekaido.co.jp/shop.html

    I've never found anywhere in Akihabara, but if you are in Roppongi there is a little place called Lapis which isn't to bad for a little shop. It's in the Roppongi Hills area near where the Cold Stone Ice Cream shop is.
    Tokyu Hands (Shibuya) also has a small art supplies section where I occasionally grab something.

    Good luck with your Japanese study, cheers!

    sekaido is the mother of all art stores, but i have to say the ito-ya in ginza is certainly not a bad place. the tokyu hands in shinjuku is pretty good and one of my favourites is yuzawaya in kichijouji.

    also, sometimes peeps in tokyo post here... have fun man.
