How to enjoy Mitsukoshi? Mitsukoshi is quite a large mall and it takes around 3 or 4 hours to complete. However, because of the prevalence of high-end products and prices it’s rarely crowded which makes it a refreshing change from the buzz of Tenjin. You can peacefully browse, enjoy the art gallery, and try the range of bento-boxes, sweets and snacks available in the basement.
For Women: From delicious treats in the “depachika” basement food market to many luxury clothing and accessories’ stores from floors 1-5, Mitsukoshi is a great place for classy ladies.
For Men: High quality men’s clothing and shoe stores can be found on the 7F. Golf players should also check out their golfing equipment shop.
For Tourists: The basement houses various Japanese restaurants with plenty of specialities to try. You can also buy gift boxes of traditional sweets and snacks and there are several kimono stockists on 8F.
For Children: Only the 9th floor has shops for children, but also a nursery. Although Mitsukoshi is not the best mall for children, tired parents with babies may find it a comfortable place due to the various seating areas.
What’s nearby? Mitsukoshi is connected to Solaria Plaza and the Tenjin Nishitetsu Bus Center.
