Concierge.com's insider take:
Popping into this Japanese department store is like taking a quick trip to Tokyo. You'll find Japanese electronics, clothing, toys (including a good selection of Hello Kitty items), kitchen gadgets, housewares, and—best of all—snacks. While the first floor is a calm, ordered world, upstairs resembles an open market, with vendors shouting out what they have for sale as you pass by. Delicious Japanese treats (such as mochi, musubi, soba, and green-tea ice cream) are available either for takeout or, if you can find a place to sit, to eat at the tables in the atrium.
