Even if you don't plan to shop, this branch of Tokyo's first depato (department store), also called hyakkaten (hundred-kinds-of-goods emporium) merits a visit. Two bronze lions, modeled on those at London's Trafalgar Square, flank the main entrance and serve as one of Tokyo's best-known meeting places. Inside, a sublime statue of Magokoro, a Japanese goddess of sincerity, rises four stories through the store's central atrium.
