Large cosmetics section worth the visit

  • Shopping

One of the biggest metro stations in Tokyo, Ikebukuro is getting more popular among tourists who are headed to department stores, electronic appliance stores, ramen shops, manga and anime attractions, or who want to go shopping and visit the aquarium at the Sunshine City shopping complex.
If you ever visit Ikebukuro, you don’t want to miss out on Matsukiyo, a drugstore at the east exit of Ikebukuro station.

Matsukiyo, short for Matsumoto Kiyoshi, which is the name of the company’s founder, is one of the biggest drugstore chains in Japan. It was only a pharmacy at first, but it now carries many more products in addition to medicines.

Although the branch is not big, the store is packed and the shelves are lined with lots of products. Especially the cosmetics selection on the second floor is fun to look at. It even has a counter exclusively for SK-Ⅱ, which is a famous and popular Japanese brand. A few English-speaking beauty experts may be at the counter during the weekend (time and days vary, so please ask other staff members if you need help) to give you some advice.

Medicines and commodities including foods are sold on the first floor. Matsukiyo is well known for selling its own brand products, so if you look carefully at each product, you will see the MK customer logo on the top left corner of the product. Those were created in response to the customers’ requests and are relatively low priced. Depending on the day and time, you might find some English-speaking staff in the medical section but they are not always on service.
