3-14-1 Shinjuku, Tokyo, 160-0022, Japan

Tokyo’s most impressive depachika (subterranean gourmet food market), Isetan may be the ultimate foodie destination. Under one roof you have Alain Ducasse, Pierre Hermé, Jean-Paul Hévin, Marie-Anne Cantin, and Christine Ferber tempting you with their chocolates, cheeses, macaroons, jams, and other treats. At eat-in counters, thinly sliced cured hams with sherry, wine, and cheese are proffered; or head straight for the bar for fine scotch and whiskey. Local treasures aren’t overlooked in this shrine to fine foods: look for marbled Wagyu beef; delicate and beautiful wagashi (Japanese confections), and perfectly ripe melons displayed like works of art—and priced accordingly, some at upwards of $100.
