I visited Itoya Ginza on 10-sep-2015 & hated it....there is absolutely no variety of pens & stationary. When I visited last in 2012, it was an awesome store....HUGE selection, but after renovation, it looks more like a fancy museum with 1-2 sample pieces on display...More

The Ginza Itoya is a marvelous place to wander around and pick up highly specialized stationary goods. Each floor is dedicated to different things (such as cards, travel, and executive aka extremely expensive pens) and I believe there is a cafe, though I didn't visit.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

The address is: Tokyo, Chuo, Ginza 2-7-15 It is actually one block back from the main shopping street in the Ginza district. The shop underwent extensive renovations and reopened a few years ago.

Unfortunately I don't know about that. But most of the items there are small and neat, so will fit just fine in even your carry on. Hope this helps!
