    Something for everyone here - including a proper fresh food market - among the various well known (many globally) chain stores, restaurants and amusements.

    This Department Store is the best in Morioka City, Japan. It offers everything that the largest department stores provide in Tokyo, only this is much smaller and in a smaller city. The lower level of the building where the food and special Japanese sweets are sold offers very high quality choices at fair prices.. A fun place to visit when you are in Morioka... Be sure to check out the breads court where the best bread for the best prices is sold...

    It's a grand department store with many offerings as one would expect. Must say the customer service is good. In particular we were excited by the many beautiful and delicate food offerings at the basement level.

    A great place to wander around, whether or not you're catching a train (I was!).

    Many great views of Osaka city, particularly at night. A photographer's delight. Possibly the longest escalators in the world!

    One of the best railway stations I have ever visited. Five star for train enthusiasts!

    We go to this store very often when we are in Maebashi. This store is the only department store in Maebashi city. They have generally high quality merchants, especially in the basement for food market, which is always crowded. A small number of restaurant has very good food with reasonable prices.

    I have done a review of this place before in my previous visit 2 years ago and in my recent back to Osaka, I have also come by this place too since I was in Namba doing shopping and surely cannot miss this place.

    Although it is a high end and posh departmental store with items priced much more steeper than elsewhere, it's good to come by to "see see" and compare prices. There are also several restaurants here that provide quality cuisines (also cost more than the restaurants just opposite the street).

    Probably the brand has up it's positioning and price but if you can afford and going for branded items, this place will be relevant for you (though in my view, quality products need not necessary be high priced items)!

    Being the biggest department store in the prefecture the building really stands out in this city. As all comparable department stores in Japan you can get anything here. The overall layout is rather Japanese standard as well: in the basement(s) the food and on the top floor the restaurants. Nice place though.

    The biggest department store in town. It is located in the main shopping street downtown. You cannot miss it. And huge it is. It consists of three building brought together with up to ten floors of shopping pleasure. Since the building are not that modern this department store still has its own special nostalgic atmosphere.

    You atypical department store, uneventful but great Japanese customer service.

    If you shop at Iwataya, there are a selection of hotels which they deliver, be sure to check when you get your tax refund.

    Great food basement where it is designed for shopping and have central seating. Good idea when you want to try different Japanese cuisines.

    We arrived in Sakae before hotel check in time and was hungry. So we went to this departmental store for a walk and try to find something to eat around the area. Was very pleased and amazed by the food at the supermarket. They looked attractive as usual like all Japanese supermarket food street/corner. We bought a beef bento and some deep fried chicken bites to eat in hotel room after checked in. Didn't take photos of those we bought, but took picture of a beautiful bento set.
