Those of you, if you are in the West, this building is nothing to praise, but living in the Far East, this building called Mengyo Kaikan is very precious.

Mengyo means cotton industry. Kaikan means hall, or building.
A very rich merchant donated to build this building.

Built in 1931, it was survived in the flames of the war.

Dramas and movies are sometimes shot here, so they can be in the setting of the West.

New Daimaru

After Sogo Shinsaibashi, a department store, was bankrupt, it was merged with Daimaru Department Store next to it.

After the renovation had done in November, I went to the new Daimaru building, old Sogo. Where there used to be my favorite food department, there are departments for girls now. Basement is completely for young girls. No food, ladies.
