Iwataya Main Shop

Complex Facility / Commercial Facility
This traditional department store opened in 1936 as the first railroad terminal department store in Kyushu. Its roots extend all the way back to 1754, when it operated as a kimono shop. A passageway connects the main building and the new annex, and inside you can find everything from men’s and ladies’ fashion to household goods, food items, cosmetics, interior goods, jewelry, restaurants, and more. For customers with children in tow, there are also brands aimed at kids. With the largest selection of goods in Kyushu, there is something here for everyone. The nearest station is Nishitetsu Fukuoka (Tenjin) Station.
