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.
