Mitsukoshi, the world's oldest surviving Japanese department store is opening in Manila. Soon, we will be able to experience Mitsukoshi's offerings as a retail institution. A partnership with Nomura Real Estate Development and Isetan Mitsukoshi, the mall will surely be one to look forward to in the city.

Here's everything we know so far about the project:

THE FIRST PHOTOS OF THE MALL'S FOOD DESTINATIONS ARE HERE.

The mall will be filled with an impressive line-up of restaurants including authentic Japanese cuisine. The grocery, as described, will be a Japanese quality market where customers can buy fresh products, imported goods, and famous sweets. There will also be a live kitchen where customers can pick out food freshly cooked by a professional chef in front of them.

IT WILL CARRY JAPANESE HOMEGROWN BRANDS.

During a press conference, Isetan Mitsukoshi president and CEO Toshihiko Sugie said that Mitsukoshi Mall will carry numerous Japanese homegrown brands. “We will be bringing in one-of-a-kind Japanese brands that you won’t find elsewhere.”

INCLUDING APPAREL, BEAUTY, AND A GROCERY STORE.

Mitsukoshi in Manila will, reportedly, foster the authentic Japanese style of service called Omotenashi. It will also include a beauty section featuring Japanese cosmetic and skincare brands, as well as a supermarket stocked with high-quality Japanese food products. You can also expect Japanese apparel.

What’s more is that the food hall will be unlike any other, as it will be filled with authentic Japanese restaurants and stalls. It will also have separate sections specifically for gourmet food and sweets.

“We know how much Filipinos love to go to the mall to shop and eat, or simply just to relax, so we hope Filipinos will enjoy their Mitsukoshi mall experience. We are excited to open the first mall of its kind in the Philippines,” Sugie added. 

The team says that they're still planning which stores to bring in, but will make announcements down the line.

THE DEPARTMENT STORE WILL OPEN IN 2021.

The high-end Japanese department store, which is the oldest surviving mall chain in Japan, will open its inaugural three-storey branch at Bonifacio Global City in 2021.

THE MALL WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY A HIGH RISE PROPERTY.

The Mitsukoshi Mall will stand right next to The Seasons Residences. The overall design of this soon-to-rise property was inspired by the sophistication and simplicity, coupled with the minimalist lifestyle our East Asian neighbors subscribe to. The residences will be developed by Nikken Sekkei, whose past projects include the high-end Roppongi Hills Residence and Tokyo Midtown.
