Lonely Planet review

One of Ginza's grande dames, Mitsukoshi embodies the essence of the Tokyo department store, and it gleams after a recent renovation. You'll find a variety of exciting treasures tucked inside, such as the 2nd-floor's outpost of Ladurée – the Parisian macaron monolith – decked out like a giant pastel Easter egg. A crown of restaurants are lofted on the building's top floors, ensuring you get some heady views of pulsing neon signs. The original Mitsukoshi department store is located north of Ginza's main drag near Mitsukoshimae Station.
