(unlisted on March 26, 2008) is an international department store chain with headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. It was founded in 1673 with the yagō (shop name) "Echigoya.". Ten years later in 1683, Echigoya took a new approach to marketing. Instead of selling by going door-to-door, they set up a store where buyers could purchase goods on the spot with cash. Mitsukoshimae Station on the Tokyo Metro is named after the adjacent Mitsukoshi department store. Mitsukoshi is the root of Mitsui group.
In August 2007, it was announced that Mitsukoshi will merge into Isetan, a major department store in Japan. On April 1, 2008, Mitsukoshi and Isetan were merged under a joint holding company called Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. ().
