Group Business

The Group consists of credit/financing/membership businesses, real estate business, and other business segments in addition to the department store business. Here, we introduce the Group’s 46 companies.


The core of our business, which accounts for approximately 80 percent of the Isetan Mitsukoshi Group’s sales, is 25 department store companies in and outside Japan, including Isetan Mitsukoshi Ltd., operating under four brands: Mitsukoshi, Isetan, Iwataya, and Marui Imai. We have 20 department stores in Japan, from Hokkaido to Kyushu, and 27 stores outside Japan, mainly in China and Southeast Asia.

The Isetan Shinjuku Main Store, Mitsukoshi Nihombashi Main Store, and Mitsukoshi Ginza Store-all located in central Tokyo, which is one of the world’s leading cities-in particular are the Isetan Mitsukoshi Group’s biggest strengths. As such, we will continue to refine the distinctiveness of these stores.

There are two companies in this business: MI CARD Co. Ltd., which is the Isetan Mitsukoshi Group’s credit company, and MI TOMONOKAI Co., Ltd., which manages membership services.

MI CARD has about 2.7 million members with refined tastes and purchasing power. The company increases membership and encourage to utilize their cards by making use of this good customer base to issue co-branded cards and expand business partners that accept MI Points from the Group’s point program.

This business consists of 5 companies, including Isetan Mitsukoshi Property Design Ltd., which conducts construction, design, and renovation. We will expand and strengthen the development of stores and commercial real estate from a medium- to long-term perspective, aiming to further enhance the value of our Group's real estate properties in the premium districts of Japan.

This business consists of a total of 14 companies, including personnel services, education and training, information systems, and distribution services, which form a foundation for maximizing the Isetan Mitsukoshi Group’s power, as well as travel, and other businesses that expand our contact with customers.
