Mitsukoshi BGC

It was my first time to vist Mitsukoshi in Bonifacio Global City during my Ed Sheeran concert weekend. Since I ony had 48 hours  to spare before going back to Iloilo City, I decided I wanted to see the Japanese department store branch in the Philippines and see how it compares with Mitsukoshi Ginza which I visited in Tokyo last summer. Of course, that’s a silly preposition since Mitsukoshi Ginza is a flagship store and the one here in the PH is a sampler of a Japanese lifestyle store so to speak.

Anyway, Mitsukoshi BGC did not disappoint. I actually love it. The store occupies  2 floors and a basement area. A good size for a mall I should say unlike the mammoth ones that take a week to explore. It has all the shops that I fancy and gives one a taste of Tokyo. There’s Daiso, Kinokuniya, Bandai Gachapon store (which unfortunately was emptied out of toys), Key Coffee and other Japanese name brands. My favorite would have to be the Mitsukoshi Fresh grocery which filled with Japanese  products, snacks, confectionery and everything right up to my alley. That alone deserves another trip to Manila soon!
