Why Ginza Mitsukoshi is special ?
Japan's first department store. It is one of the foremost department stores in Japan, with 14 locations in major Japanese cities like Sapporo, Nihombashi, Ginza, Nagoya, and Fukuoka, as well as international branches including London, Rome, and 19 locations in Taiwan. In Nihombashi store sights, such as a statue of a Goddess and a giant pipe organ, are as equally impressive. Visitors to every store are greeted by the lion statues who sit staunchly by the entrance.
