Lions at the entrance

A department store named Mitsukoshi's main store is located in the Nihonbashi district in Tokyo. It originated in 1673, when it started to sell kimono. In 1904, it changed into the American-style department store. The main store building is designated as the Important Cultural Assets. Statues of Lion at the entrance have been welcoming customers. Inside and outside the department store, you feel the atmosphere of its history. If you are interested in the Nihonbashi district, I would like to make your itinerary. Why don't you join me?

I have memories about Mitsukoshi.

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
