Inside the maternity section
In the maternity section, the very youngest infants are welcomed to the Mitsukoshi family even before their birth. The friendly staff are on hand to ensure every last detail is taken care of and can advise on all practical matters for the mother-to-be, as well as guide you to the perfect gift for the mum-to-be or newborn baby.
Traditional newborn gifts
In the store you will find everything from infant clothes from Japanese and international brands to gifts to be treasured to mark the birth. Find fine silverware and traditional Japanese gifts including adorable okuizome sets of miniature tableware for the infant’s first banquet celebration.
Elsewhere, meeting the needs of the infant through to their first steps and beyond, the fashionable in-store range spans exclusive Japanese lines from Polo Ralph Lauren as well as Anna Sui Mini and traditional cute kawaii culture items from Japanese brands Shirley Temple and perennially popular Miki House. For formal occasions, the salon offers fine tailoring and elegant dresses to fit any age and gathering so, whether it’s a sombre or a celebratory event, you will find refined clothes that you will want to keep long after they have been grown out of.
Expert footwear for children
Tracking your child’s feet as they grow up is a key area and the orthopaedically trained shoe consultants take particular pride in making sure the fit is just right for growing feet as well as keeping a close eye on your child’s posture. As ever, from formal styles and refined designs fit for school through to the colourful and cute that will delight both you and your child, all tastes are to be found and made to the quality you should expect from Mitsukoshi.
The magic of children’s toys
Ensuring that all members of the family enjoy each visit to the store as much as you do, the Toys Garden on the fifth floor is always a popular destination, with the Tenyo magic counter proving a particular favourite among all ages. Resident magicians are on hand to entertain the whole family with a range of tricks that younger visitors can enjoy mastering and, for the more proficient, there is a fantastic selection of industry-standard Japanese tricks that are, quite simply, magic.
