In a city where Department Stores rule, the youthful and luxury Isetan, in the heart of the Shinjuku district, stands out.   Isetan is a wonderful place to see and shop for new and established Japanese designers; and most importantly, to eat!

The lower level of the building, as in most department stores in japan, holds a football pitch of food!   Supermarket, specialty food booths, tiny kitchens preparing delicious  dishes for take away, Liquor and wine sections, and a sprawling pastry area, create a food fantasy!  In the sweets,  It is very difficult to choose; each stand has the most seductive sweets and chocolates most of them french but with the Japanese touch of perfection.

The top floor of the building  is a green roof park with a children’s playground area, as well as benches and tables where one can consume the delicacies from the lower level.  This is a perfect way to start the day with a quick bite in a lovely setting 🙂

If You are visiting Japan, Isetan and Mitsokushi are the two best places to buy food to bring home.  It is definitely  worth visiting the 2 department stores  as they both sell supreme Japanese food, from all over the country.
