TOKYO | Mitsukoshi is more than just a department store, it’s an institution. Japan’s oldest surviving department store was founded in 1673 as a door-to-door kimono retailer, and in 1683 pioneered the then relatively new concept of selling goods in a store that customers could buy on the spot for cash.

Today, Mitsukoshi has a few stores around Japan and in Asia, but the most impressive is the Ginza flagship, which stands on the same site where the original 1683 store once stood. The fifteen storey shopper’s paradise has something for everybody – four floors are home to womenswear and accessories, two floors are dedicated to menswear and accessories, one to homewares, one to cosmetics, and two to food. All of the world’s top brands are here, as well as many local mid and high end brands.

The food hall at Mitsukoshi is especially impressive, and features a complete fresh produce supermarket, which is displayed beautifully, and a floor full of concessions featuring plenty of specialty Japanese sweet retailers and some of our favorite brands like Mariage Freres (tea), Jean Paul Hevin (the raspberry jam is to die for), and Ippodo (high quality matcha and green tea).

Make sure you allocate a bit of time to explore all that Mitsukoshi has to offer, as once you start shopping you may not want to leave.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
