Melbourne, Victoria, Australia., Australia
January 27, 2002
It is open everyday from 10am to 7.30pm though occasionally closed on Wednesday.
Isetan is huge. You won't believe me if I tell you that Isetan is split into seven buildings which are located very close to each other.
I was in the main building, the Annex building. Various items with fantastic choices. The prices are a bit expensive. I was in the Isetan Kaikan building, too; it contains various restaurants and eating outlets. I did not really like the food here as it was not as delicious compared to other restaurants in Shinjuku. Moreover, the prices were extremely expensive. A bowl of ramen cost me more than 1500 yen. On the eight floor of the Annex building there are the Isetan building of Art and the Fine Art Salon.
What is special about Isetan is it has a I-club which is special services for foreign customers. I did my inquiries at the Customer Services desk on the seventh floor.
I was given a monthly newsletter which contains comprehensive news of sales and special promotions. The receptionist speaks fluent English.
I did not purchase any items or souvenirs from Isetan as I find the prices here a bit too expensive compared to other numerous shops around Shinjuku.
A good place for window-shopping .
