  • Good center with staff. Really good service. And remember to get a tax return. Only one minus, the tar a fee for tax refund, 1.1%.

  • We had a great coffee in the basement food area, there are four chairs at the coffee area near the French bakery area - it was hard to find. You cannot eat there but we only wanted coffee - cost about...  read more »
  • Food market (underground) was insane. Nab what you want and go to the outdoor park (floor 8 I think), grab a yuzu ginger ale, and and chill above it all.
  • Very nice store. Very helpful staff. Good value for money pricing.
  • Ginza Mitsukoshi Food Floor (B2) If you ever "don't know what to eat" in Tokyo, go here. I guarantee you will not have experienced anything quite like it. Every department store in Japan has a "food floor", usually in the basement, where notable vendors from around the region set up a stall and sell food. The Ginza Mitsukoshi Food Garden recently got both refurbished and extended, and I think it's the best one in the city. It is a massive, seething, humming maelstrom of customers and vendors selling all kinds of food from every corner of Japan. Despite the hustle and bustle it all seems to work together in a kind of chaotic harmony and nobody gets in your way. My advice would be to load up on food (don't forget some dessert) and take it to a nearby park to eat if it's a nice day. The Imperial Palace (Koukyo) park is just a 5 minute cab ride from here and is one of the most tranquil spots in the inner city.
  • very luxurious. on the 8th floor there s duty free on cosmetics :)
  • Good selection of items when you need to bring nice gifts home after a business trip to Tokyo.
