The roots of Japanese department stores

This is Takashimaya in Japan. (Another photo is taken at Mitsukoshi.)

NYC's Takashimaya, shot by Brian of New York Daily Photo, is here.

Japanese famous department stores, Takashiyama, Mitsukoshi and Isetan, come from Japanese luxury clothes, Kimono, shops.

PS. Coincidentally the building is similar to the one in Athens Daily Photo.

We have a similar building in Athens which also serves as a department store. I just posted the photo in ADP

Following the lnk from Athens. It's true they look similar. Is that a kimono in the window? It's so very beautiful.

walter, ovelikos and angela
Thank you for the comment!!
angela: Yes, it is kimono. We seldom wear kimono now and kimono is just an art object for me.
