This was my favorite food hall among all the 'depatchikas' throughout Tokyo. The presentation and sheer volume of food products from all over the world was amazing. The only place I can compare it to is Harrod's in London.

It doesn't get much better than this. Check out the food basement. Haven't seen anything like it before. Football fields of food, some prepared, some like a grocery store. Your visit to Shinjuku isn't complete without a stop here. Great for lunch or a snack.

The department store is huge. If you have the preference of getting premium hip Japanese brands like Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, Commes des Gargons. There are also international brands like Burberry Blue, Jil Sander, Marc Jacob. But don't go there during their public holiday, so packed that you would have thought it's X'mas in Walmart. Don't go if you're looking for something thrifty, you won't find any.

Although the weak dollar made clothing purchases unrealistic, I loved browsing the men's department here before going to the utterly amazing food court in the basement of the main building. If only I had the equivalent of about $500, I could have gotten a really nice short-sleeved manga shirt, which would have been quite a souvenir. My financial situation being as it was, however, I got great affordable takeout food in the court in the basement. Isetan is also a great landmark to use to go into a great restaurant neighborhood beyond Shinjuku Dori. All of a sudden the neighborhood drops off from large-scale to adorably human.

This is the Lourvre, Metropolitan, Modern Museum of food presentation and beauty. Don't miss it. Don't be intimidated by the formality either - the sales people are lovely and ready to help. If in Tokyo visit the Isetan in Shinjuko and be carried away -- buy food too!
