You atypical department store, uneventful but great Japanese customer service. If you shop at Iwataya, there are a selection of hotels which they deliver, be sure to check when you get your tax refund. Great food basement where it is designed for shopping and have central seating. Good idea when you want to try different Japanese cuisines.

The department stores come in 2 phases of twin buildings, connecting by a walking bridge on 3rd floor. Despite we walked through almost every inch of the 2 buildings, we hardly find any attraction despite it was nicely displayed. Surprisingly, the service quality of staff there were not too nice, just so and so. The more attraction of the department... More

This location is one of the most famous tourists and local attraction for shopping and food. This mall is just besides the big train subway station and has a lot of small eatrus besides ir. The nall itself is uptown and trendy. A must visit place if you have the time ib that area.

This is the classiest shopping centre in Ippudo with great friendly staff and attention to detail. Bought a present for my son and they took great pains to wrap it nicely without even asking. Made my day.

Of what I saw, this establishment had the finest products. Take a look around even if you don't purchase anything. The service is exemplary, even if some struggled with English. Impressive!

My wife had a blast here, travelling between the old and new blocks to buy make up such as Shu Uemura and clothes by Mila Over, while I enjoyed the supermarket and food hall areas in the basement. We especially love the French style breads, which are very fresh, as well as the friendly sales staff selling mentaiko (fish roe)... More

A very nice high-end international and local brands department store. Tax-free refund was located on 1/F of new building but there was an unreasonable charge of 1.1% of total tax-free purchases as process fee. Good Cafes were scattered on different floors. Eat Paradise was on 7/F of new building, opening between 11am - 10pm. Had dinner at Tenichi Tempura and... More

This is the high end of the Mitsukoshi department stores chain in Fukuoka. All big brand names are here. Food floor worth a visit.

The decorations outside was really beautifully since it was near Christmas time. Besides that, it's just your average shopping mall. Although I would say the prices were a bit lower than that of Daimaru Tokyo's.
