Our local Goth guide, Key, took us to Mystica in Alexanderplatz. This location is about to move, so check the website for the new address (there are two stores).

In any case, Berlin is not the place to buy Lolita dresses or Japanese Gothic/Visual wear. Here, you should go for old-school and deathrock clothing, such as these skeleton jackets.
