MANILA, Philippines – Malling tayo, g? Japan’s famous Mitsukoshi Mall opened its doors to the Philippine public for the first time on November 18 at Bonifacio Global City! Have you said kon’nichiwa yet?

The modern, Japanese-inspired mall isn’t fully complete yet, but it already houses a few well-known favorites like Mendokoro Ramenba, Fully Booked’s Kinokuniya Bookstore branch, Japan’s The Matcha Tokyo, and the upcoming Japanese steak chain Ikinari Steak.

It’s still a bit empty (and very cold) inside, but the Tuesday afternoon crowd was enough to feel like a lively neighborhood mall. It’s good for a leisurely stroll, especially if you’re looking for a merienda spot or a cup of coffee, or doing some light or luxury shopping. A lot of stores are still boarded up though, with no final date on when the mall will be finished yet.
