Department stores in Japan

Out of the many in Tokyo, I would recommend Matsuzakaya. This place has everything from food, clothing and accessory stores. If you get lost or want to know where a specific store is, there is an information desk on the first floor so you will never get lost. Every time I want to find out where what is, I go an ask and they lead you immediately.
