Iwataya Main Store
Iwataya is a historic department store located in Tenjin, Fukuoka. It was established by Koemon Nakamuta in 1754 during the Edo period as Beniya (meaning "the Red House"), a kimono shop preceding Iwataya. Ten years later in 1764, it changed its name to Iwataya. In 1936, it opened a shop in Tenjin, which became the first and major department store in Kyushu. Iwataya is currently split into the Main Building and New Building (Annex), and boasts one of Kyushu's biggest brand selections, notably its luxury and cosmetic brand lineup.

Fukuoka Mitsukoshi is the Fukuoka branch of the historic Mitsukoshi department store. It was established by Takatoshi Mitsui in 1673 during the Edo period as a kimono shop called "Echigoya". In 1904, the store took the Chinese character for "Mitsu" in Mitsui's last name and combined it with character for "Echi" (alternatively read as "koshi") from "Echigoya", giving the store the new name of Mitsukoshi Kimono Shop. In the same year, it declared itself a department store. This was the first department store in Japan, and remains as the current "Mitsukoshi". In 1997, Fukuoka Mitsukoshi opened, and it continues to offer products enriching people's lives, such as clocks, jewelry, artwork and crafts, fashion items, and high-quality food products.
