Department Store | High End Stores

Department Stores, also known as depāto or hyakkaten, are large buildings usually five to ten stories high filled with different kinds of shops and boutiques. Department stores in Japan generally carry goods on the higher end. Most stores focus on fashion and apparel including both casual and formal wear. As you climb up the floors you will likely find interior goods and furniture stores as well as toy stores. The top level of the department store is usually a restaurant floor with all kinds of restaurants. The restaurants are usually reasonably priced and people often go to department stores just for this floor.
