When Takashimaya Nihombashi opened its doors in 1933 it was one of the most advanced department stores of its time. Since then, the building has been continually expanded and improved.
One of its most notable features is the rooftop dome, a vast space originally built to house the resident elephant in the 1950s.
Today Takashimaya Nihombashi is a beautiful structure that has grown to occupy a whole city block. A visit to this store filled with enticing goods lets you experience the very new amid the very old.
