Lonely Planet review

Although most of Tokyo's depāto are located in and around Ginza, you'll find a few shopping behemoths in Ikebukuro, including Tobu. In general, the prices here are noticeably lower than in Ginza since the real estate is cheaper. Tobu's worth a visit for its vast basement depachika , boasting the cheapest sashimi in town (come at 7pm when prices are halved).
