First time to this department store in Ikebukuro. It definitely was large! Spent the whole day there walking around, buying souvenirs and eating. If you haven't been to this store yet, it is worth a visit. Easy to get there too. Just 4 stops from the Shinjuku Stratton to Ikebukuro. A short walk towards the west exit and there you are.

This centre is HUGE! It has many entrances, lifts and escalators which makes it confusing to find your way around. These are from the railway/metro station and from the surrounding streets.

There are restaurants on the top floors - a wide range, many of which have 'plastic food' examples to show you what the food is which us really helpful. We eventually found a cafe which had spaces to sit down (as many are tiny) and had an English menu as a bonus!

The food markets are in the 2 basement levels - we only managed to find these once!

I'm sure with more time it would become easier to find your way around - it was an interesting experience!

Came here just to look for Pandora. Found the counter but the salesperson can barely speak English. Managed to tell her we wanted a new bracelet and is looking for Disney collection. We bought a normal bracelet instead cause she didn't show us the Mickey bracelet (which we didn't know of).

When I first stayed in Hotel Metropolitan a couple of years ago, I didn’t know where to buy food. So I bought some food items from a nearby convenient store. But after staying in this hotel several times, I discovered that there were more choices in the basement of Tobu Department Store. It is right in front of Hotel Metropolitan and the South Exit of JR Ikebukuro Station.
The basement of Tobu Department Store is split into two sections by Subway Lines. Both sections have two levels: B1 and B2. In the Metropolitan Hotel side of the basement, various kinds of cooked food items as well as varieties of packed lunch are sold. There are bakeries, sushi bar, as well as a supermarket where I often bought fruit.
In the other side of the basement, various kinds food items including traditional Japanese sweets are sold. So I dropped in to buy Sakura-mochi (cherry cake) everyday, when I returned from outing. For some reason, Inari-sushi is sold on this side of the basement, while the other sushi is sold on the Hotel Metropolitan side.
I sometimes went to a restaurant on the “Restaurant Street Spice” (11th - 15th levels). It’s in the further end of the department store. There are also restaurants on the 8th and 9th levels of Lumine Building that is in front of Hotel Metropolitan.
Restaurants are open from 11am to 10pm. Basement is open from 10am to 9pm (close at 8pm on Sundays and public holidays).
At every entrance of the department store, there is an information desk to help us find our way.
