Nihombashi Mitsukoshi Main Store 日本橋三越本店

1-4-1 Nihombashi-muromachi, Chuo City, Tokyo

Visit this grand dame of Japanese shopping to enjoy luxury at its finest

Mitsukoshi, Japan's oldest surviving department store chain, is so prestigious that a railway station was named after it, Mitsukoshimae Station. Visit this flagship branch of the Mitsukoshi group and see how Japanese retail has progressed since the store's more humble beginnings as distinguished kimono seller Echigoya in 1673.


  • Displaying a breathtaking sense of Renaissance-style majesty, the current Mitsukoshi building in Nihombashi underwent six years of renovations and expansions completed in 1935. Of particular note is the flower garden-like beauty of the central hall—with French mottled red marble and Italian egg-yolk marble beneath a grand skylit ceiling. In July 2016, this hall was designated as an important national cultural property.
  • Each floor features numerous shops, offering a wide array of products from freshly prepared side dishes and high-quality ingredients, to Japanese and Western sweets celebrating each season and famous confectionary with a sense of history.
  • The concierge at Nihombashi Mitsukoshi will help you find everything you need during your visit to this remarkable place.
