LaLa Port is the reputed to be the largest mall in teh greater Tokyo Metropolitan area. Considering the 30million some people that call this metropolis home. I think the reputation as the biggest mall is therefore impressive. It's only four stories tall but stretches on and on. It's out in Funabashi (between Chiba and Tokyo proper) so the land is a little cheaper but it's still and impressive feat.
They made it all purdy with lights and palm trees too. There's a big theater with 5 screens or so at the top. They are playing "Memories of a Geisha" but have retitled it (a common phenomena) "Sayuri"
I didn't get much of a chance to explore, as it was after work for me and late for the rest of the world. It's deffinitely going to be worth a day trip... or three back. It's a good thing that I don't fit into anything Japanesed sized, it makes window shopping less painful and more fun.
Plus, it's called "La La Port" How can you go wrong with that?
