The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 with anyone looking for a night out.

This is the original store for Mitsukoshi which began in 1673. It is two separate buildings and the architectural view from the street is stunning. You’ll see massive lion statues that flank the store's entrance which were installed in the early 1900’s. Soon to follow was Japan's first escalator inside the main entrance. This is truly a department store with major brands available on every floor. Like the Ginza store, the basement is for eating and take out. There are sweets and savory items available for purchase. What’s also special about the Nihombashi store is the theater which is on the 6th floor.
The store is worth going to even if you don’t want to shop and simply want to tour. I’d start on the basement floor which is connected to Mitsukoshi Mae station of Tokyo Metro. This is how you might arrive if you take the subway which I’d recommend. On the basement, you’d see art deco inspired pillars, and a picture scroll which depicts the scenery around the Nihonbashi area. After seeing the historical pillars that are also earthquake resistant, you can go to the 1st floor which is how you’d enter the building from the street. The 1st floor has a fossil of Ammonite that is probably the biggest in Tokyo. Within the building there are over 3000 fossils of Ammonite. You’ll see a massive statue of the Celestial Maiden. She is over 30 feet tall and can’t be missed. Above her is a pipe organ which is still played. On either side of the statue are marble stairs. The ceiling which is 5 stories above the floor has art deco inspired stained glass. The very large pipe organ is from Wurlitzer in New York made in 1930. This is quite a piece of history and I’d highly recommend a visit.

We were just in time for the opening ceremony. It is a must see. Go in, see staff standing, bowing and greeting to you. It feels like a royalty treatment. The collection is gigantic. So much to see, from luxurious to just beautiful. Forget the Rolex, go straight to the Kimono wear for ladies. You don't have this at home. The food market in the basement is beyond your imagination. If not hungry and thirsty, you will. This was a fantastic trip in paradise.

Last Sunday, 12th of June, I went shopping for 2 nice presents at this department store, it was a horrible shock for me, The service staffs at the payment counter of the 5th floor was extremely rude and insincere. I just asked for the explaination of my gold Mcard in English but not only do they not speak english but they have a extremely rude telephone intererpter, who call herself, hayashi , a lady, that keep on telling me , this is Japan and this is Japanese rules. I asked her , what does she mean and she said that i must read & write Japanese to understand,how to use my card because this is Japan. I was very shocked of her racist ways of speech. I got really upset and decided to leave the store. All foreigners better think if this is the departmental store, U want to spend yr hard earned money at ???. i sincerely do not think we foreigners , should help this kind of department store that have racists attitude.

I read that department store openings are something to see, in Japan; this did not prove exaggeration at Mitsukoshi. I don't know whether it differs much from other depato, but I was completely happy with my visit here. The store-opening ceremony almost has to be seen to be believed. The store itself is incredible; it's really like visiting a major museum of modern Japanese culture, except you can buy everything. (If you have lots of money.) There's also a splendid rooftop garden complete with a shrine! Go here and know that you have traveled.

Very upscale, I really couldn't afford anything in it. Very clean and beautifully arranged. There were lots of items from Major Designers, but even scarves were $100US. Great place to window shop though. They have lots of helpers all through the store, but not all of them spoke English. I made it to the top floor where they had a Ikebana Show. Whoa! Was it wonderful! I love flowers and Ikebana is so amazing. I stared outside the exhibit hall for a while trying to figure it out -- my iPhone translation app wasn't up to this task. A gentleman walked to me and is very simple English gave me a ticket to the Exhibit! That was so nice, I hope he reads this review, so that I can thank him. I proceeded to spend almost two hours in the exhibit (easily over 100 different floral arrangements) and was adopted by a couple of women who didn't let their lack of English stop them for conversing with me about Ikebana. Thanks to them too! I really enjoyed that exhibit. I have to admit, I don't look Asian at all, so I'm pretty conspicuous at the Mitsukoshi. But everyone was very friendly and helpful in that store, despite my linguistic handicap. My next stop was to the Food Garden in the basement. That was amazing!! It happened to be White Day (look it up) Everyone was buying candy/chocolates. Okay, including me! What a wonderful way to spend a Friday evening in Tokyo. Anyway, I didn't buy anything except chocolate, but spent a delightful 3+ hours in the store. Thanks so much Mistukoshi for the cheapest stop I had in Tokyo.

Phenomenal fresh strawberries (when in season) if the prices are exorbitant. The more modest priced strawberries are outstanding!

Japan’s oldest department store. Beside the multiple fashion brand, both local and international, the depachika food hall at the basement worth the visit.

Came in because of the food department and because I read somewhere there's a robot working in this particular department store, but did not find it. Nonetheless, I was quite stunned to find the lovely kimonos on display in the upper floors. Kimonos truly are the manifestation of Japanese craftsmanship and art, and the obis are beautiful.

We read a very good review before we went so we were prepared. The stores are very high end. But the highlight was the very high end food market. Wow. It was so fun to walk around and see food of the absolute highest quality being sold. Fancy French sweets to Japanese savories. It was really interesting. We took the advice of another traveller and checked out the roof top which was worth climbing the stairs for. There is a bonsai garden store up there as well. The architecture and statue in the centre of the building are worth the visit alone.
