Top choice department store in Shinjuku & Northwest Tokyo

Isetan is our favourite Tokyo department store for several reasons: the up-and-coming Japanese fashion designers (check the 2nd-floor Tokyo Closet and 3rd-floor Re-Style boutiques in the main building, and the 2nd floor of the men's building); the homewares from contemporary artisans (5th floor); and the quite literally mouth-watering depachika (basement food floor).

Bonus: there's a rooftop garden where you can sit and eat all the goodies you've amassed in the food hall.
