Marking the Passage of Time: Classic Takashimaya

When you visit the Nihombashi branch of Takashimaya, you are entering more than just a store. You are stepping afoot onto an Important Cultural Property of Japan. Built in 1933, the building exudes elegance of the Showa era – a “modern-style building reflecting an oriental taste.”

Intricate design details aside, the shopping experience is also carefully curated with original shops and all the major luxury brands. Satisfy – or rather, enlighten – your palate here with classic dishes harking to the Edo era such as unagi and sushi to modern fusion gourmet. True quality is, after all, timeless.

Watch Out For This

Takashimaya has embarked on a new venture last year with the launch of the two-storey, around 8,600 sq ft Takashimaya Watch Maison, just across the street from the main store, dedicated exclusively to watches. Housing over 80 brands such as Omega, Jager-leCoultre,Vacheron Constantin, IWC, Longines, Seiko, Casio and Citizen, the largest watch boutique on the streets of Japan and the world today – and perhaps for time to come.
