Mitsukoshi was launched as a kimono fabric retail outlet; originally established in 1673 it is now well into its fourth century of business success. In 1904 it declared itself Japan’s first department store, and is still recognised as the country’s pioneer department store to this day.
As well as being the first in its field, Mitsukoshi has earned the respect and patronage of throngs of discerning customers with its superlative product lineups and devotion to impeccable service.
Mitsukoshi’s message is ‘always with you, in formalwear and casual clothing alike’ and it is a brand that engages with customers on all occasions, from the special to the everyday.
Besides its two large stores in Tokyo, the Nihombashi main store and the Ginza store, the brand also operates stores in other major cities nationwide. Whichever branch customers step into, the hospitality is guaranteed to be equally warm in every Mitsukoshi store.
