We stayed at the InterContinental Yokohama Grand, and so the malls were just a quick walk across the bridge. To get to the Mark IS, we had to talk through the Queens Square mall area. And as we exited the mall and came to an opening, we turned right for the Mark IS. Had we gone straight instead, it would have taken us to the Landmark Plaza.
Anyway, the Mark IS in my view was the best mall among the three in the area. Good to know is that on the basement floor is a grocery store where you can get all the basics, and there are some traditional Japanese food stores where you can eat some nice Japanese desserts or buy wonderful gifts. We also did some shopping at the Lupicia store, as they had some items that we could not buy in the US.
We did mostly window shopping, but I promised myself that I would return to this mall once more before I fly back to the US. It's mostly for the good traditional Japanese foods, which are always best when eaten fresh from the source.
By the way, people in Japan dress nicely when shopping. You're not going to see shorts and T-shirts unless you're from the US. Of course, this was the middle of January when there was snow just two days ago, but the point is the same. People dress nicely in public.
