Foodies can enjoy Mitsukoshi’s food court called “Tasty Life,” located in the basement. Also in this space is Mitsukoshi Fresh, the mall’s version of an upscale supermarket. It will feature a sweets and deli corner, taking inspiration from the popular depachika (department store food markets) found in their malls in Japan.
For cosmetics and beauty salons, the “Beautiful Life” section will be on the ground floor and will feature some of the most famous brands from Japan. Meanwhile, “Inspired Life” on the third floor will have Japanese and international dining options, along with homeware, accessories, and premium retail brands. A Japanese bookstore is also set to open on the same floor. Finally, the fourth floor, named “Entertainment Life,” will have entertainment and wellness services.
