Department Store
At Matsuya Ginza, admire the highest fashion alongside ornate and intricately prepared and displayed foodstuffs. One of two branches of the department store in the country, it was established in 1925, though today the updated building boasts a modern glass and LED facade. In addition to high-end clothing brands, the store's 11 floors also include household goods and a pet shop. As a foreign tourist you'll get tax refunds; check out the third floor to have things shipped home for you.

  • Matsuya Ginza is the first "depaato" department store I visited upon arriving in Japan in 1987. High end, with great service and high prices to match. The white gloved service is what you go to a place like this to experience. Don't expect to barter, or any discounts. Still, it's worth a look!
  • It has a small roof, not very busy but hot in summer. I will recommend the fermentation bar and the product design section on the 7th floor. If you have time go to the B1. You will find some good bread here.
  • We went to the homewares floor (8th floor?) and looked around but didn't buy anything. Great selection but slightly expensive.
  • On the top floor are the best home furnishings in the world. I recommend the incense and the cuckoo clocks.
  • i love Japan and Japanese people. such humble lot. the shopping mall is superb while not being too heavy on your pocket.
