The area
Address
Neighborhood: Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.

It’s rather a shopping mall than a department store. I hadn’t been there for the past three yeas due to Covid. My friend and I enjoyed window shopping on our way to Sushi Zanmai.

Beautifully displayed many items with high prices. It's good to look at but not to buy. It's more for the young people, I guess.

Located near the train station, this is one of the 3 departments stores in the area. No surprises but they have lots of restaurants at 7-8/F. Similar to other Japanese one, the basement has food court n supermarket for grocery items.

We enjoyed window shop on our way back from Sushizanmai. We went down to the basement by the escalator in order to go to the food floor of Seibu Department Store.

I visited the Parco Museum in Ikebukuro today to see their exhibition on saké. The exhibit had a small but interesting collection of bottles and labels. Sadly there were only about a dozen words of English in the exhibition and one in the largest title was misspelled. One of the last photos was what I felt was a sexist shot of a woman with a large bottle of saké between her legs.

I had read that there was a souvenir cup included for saké tasting but I was just given a ticket for a small taste of saké at the end.

The gift shop had a smaller selection of saké than my local saké shop but I believe the individual cups of saké some of which were very interesting may have been designed for the exhibit.

After the museum I decided to visit the store. It seemed pretty dull with not much in it unless you are looking for Onitsuka Tiger brand sneakers - there was a large area featuring those.

I think I'd give Parco a miss. Seibu next door is much bigger and much more interesting and a large Tokyu Hands is also a short walk away.

As my Japanese friend came to see me in Ikebukuro, where I was staying, we decided to go to Ikebukuro Parco. It used to be a small department store, but in 1969 it was changed into a shopping mall called “Parco.” We enjoyed window-shopping in this big trendy mall.
