Mitsukoshi representatives finally made the announcement official today that the high-end Japanese department store, which is the oldest surviving mall chain in Japan, will open its inaugural three-storey branch at Bonifacio Global City in 2021. The 17,000-square-meter mall, alongside a residential community, will be brought in by Metrobank Group's Federal Land.

Isetan Mitsukoshi president and CEO Toshihiko Sugie said during the press launch that Mitsukoshi Mall will carry Japanese homegrown brands. “We will be bringing in one-of-a-kind Japanese brands that you won’t find elsewhere.”

Vague, but we can start dreaming of our wish list. We already know that it will foster the authentic Japanese style of service called Omotenashi. It will also include a beauty section featuring Japanese cosmetic and skincare brands, as well as a supermarket stocked with high-quality Japanese food products. You can also expect Japanese apparel.

What’s more is that the food court will be unlike any other, as it will be filled with authentic Japanese restaurants and stalls. It will also have separate sections specifically for gourmet food and sweets.

“We know how much Filipinos love to go to the mall to shop and eat, or simply just to relax, so we hope Filipinos will enjoy their Mitsukoshi mall experience. We are excited to open the first mall of its kind in the Philippines,” Sugie added.

The team says that they're still planning which stores to bring in, but will make announcements down the line.

The Mitsukoshi Mall will stand right next to The Seasons Residences. The overall design of this soon-to-rise property was inspired by the sophistication and simplicity, coupled with the minimalist lifestyle our East Asian neighbors subscribe to. The residences will be developed by Nikken Sekkei, whose past projects include the high-end Roppongi Hills Residence and Tokyo Midtown.
