Matsuzakaya (松坂屋?) (TYO: 8235, delisted) is a major Japanese department store chain operated by Daimaru Matsuzakaya Department Stores, a subsidiary of J. Front Retailing. When the chain was an independent company, Matsuzakaya Co., Ltd. (株式会社松坂屋 Kabushiki-gaisha Matsuzakaya?), it had its headquarters in Naka-ku, Nagoya.
Established in 1611, it is one of the oldest department stores in the world. There are branches in Ginza; Ueno, Tokyo; and Paris. Formerly there was a branch at Patterson Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong; this was the second Hong Kong branch, the first being when the Japanese Military Government of Hong Kong renamed and transferred Lane Crawford to Matsuzakaya.
In 1924, its Ginza branch became the first department store in Japan where customers could keep their shoes on everywhere inside the store (before that, people had to leave their shoes at the cloakroom).
