Shopping @ Isetan

Shopping in Japan isn’t just about the products, it’s about the respect we have for products and this starts with the farmer. The products are carefully manicured until they are perfect, and then are collected and transported to the grocers. Then a diligent selection is made and packaging is carefully carried out until the products are all uniform. Now ready to be shopped by faithful Isetan customers you are ready.

If you do go shopping in Japan think twice about how you place you products. The vegetables cannot be thrown into a basket as most people do in Americas and careful attention to the placement is key in order to preserve their integrity.
