Fascinating Isetan The Japan Store @ Lot 10, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur

Its quite exciting to see Isetan opening a real Japanese concept store in Malaysia. All the products and environment in this Isetan store does imported from Japan and make you feel like visiting a Japanese department store. Malaysian do like Japanese products very much. Although the exchange rate is not favourable to us, we still like to buy Japanese products. This can be seen when people flocking to The Isetan store in Lot 10 and the newly opened FamilyMart. I do admit that I attracted to the products over here. I spend almost half a day exploring this mall and tried the food at their food court. Here you can have authentic Japanese food. If you like soba noodles, they even have a Japanese chef making the soba noodles here. Fresh on the spot. If you like Japanese drinks, the selection is abundant from beer, wines, sake and Japanese non-alcoholic drinks. Isetan The Japan Store currently has five floors operating, with each floor has its own dedicated theme: The Market, The Museum, The Studio, The Room, and The Cube. The store does great for window shopping but not so friendly to your wallet. A broom imported from Japan, cost MYR500, Doob technology figure at MYR950 to MYR3200 and clothes mostly above MYR1000.
