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.


What to explore at Ginza Mitsukoshi?

The oldest surviving department store chain in Japan (founded 1673), Mitsukoshi has its gargantuan flagship store in Nihonbashi. This Ginza branch (opposite Wako) has womenswear and accessories on the first five floors, menswear on the sixth, and household goods on the seventh. The B3 floor has toys, childrenswear and the tax-exemption counter. The bronze lion outside Mitsukoshi’s main entrance is a popular meeting place.

Ginza is elegant shoping and dinning district in Tokyo. If you are in Tokyo, do not miss it. Shoping is expensive but with lots of luck, time and energy you might find a deal. Lots of good fashion from Europe. Great choice of restaurants, souvenieer,tea and coffeee shops. There are also lots cultural -religious point of interes like Hatcho shrines. Almost forgot - there is free WI-Fi area on main street Around noon main street is closed for traffic and in no time you will see street full of people, benches, shades etc. Do not be suprised, Tokyo has 11 million people plus 19 million in suburb, not to mention tourists; therefore there will be always people around you 24/7 During a night it is pretty much the same mix of glamour people and lights. Do not go in any extablishemnt with bouncers or those without windows.
