Tokyo: Luxury for all the senses
  
Taste: Mitsukoshi Department Store Basement

Taste: Mitsukoshi Department Store Basement


One of the best parts of Tokyo’s gargantuan department stores is found in the basement: Food! Department stores in Japan are known for their extraordinary—and often very high-end—array of fruits and vegetables, sweets, ready-made foods, sushi, bento boxes, and other treats.

You can graze your way through the aisles—many of the vendors offer free samples of their delights—and then choose between hundred dollar melons and prized varieties of sweet potato.

Mitsukoshi’s Ginza branch is located on a wide avenue, full of shops and restaurants. Head to the basement for a quick meal, high-quality carry-out, or the perfect fixings for a gourmet picnic under the cherry blossoms.
