you mean 'Tokyo Bay Lalaport' in Funabashi?
Yup, it might be the biggest. Aside from the shopping mall, cinema complex, food theme park, it used to have a Sogo department store and an indoor all-season ski dome 'Xaws' before.



Anyway, in Tokyo area, the age of fuge shopping center like Sears has already ended.

Tokyo has the department stores and other alternative stores so cheap shopping centres and supermarkets are not necessary. But there is a few of them, mainly outside the 23 wards.

Do you mean one shopping center, or a shopping area? All of the big terminals (Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ikebukuro) have huge shopping areas covering several blocks, with large department stores dotted around. Then there's the underground shopping areas, like Yaesu by Tokyo and underneath Shinjuku. In the suburbs there's a few malls and outlets, like in Minami Machida or Minami Osawa. Makuhari has Costco and Carrefours.

I saw a pretty big one when I went to Sunshine 60. I think it had about 300 stores on 3 levels at the bottom of the building.

Within Tokyo's Yamanote loop line area, owing to the appreciation of land values, you cannot see American style one-story shoe box shopping malls such as Sears, Walmart or Carrefour. But as Japanese average lifestyle goes, downtown Tokyo is the exceptional region, becuase no one need to use cars in everyday life. Aside from downtown Tokyo, Japan is completely mature motorized society. When you get on a car and get out of Yamanote loop line area and into the rest of Japan, you see tons of American style shoe box shopping centers along highways such as Jusco (Asia's biggest retail business).

Aqua City Odaiba and Venusfort. If you are looking for GAP, NEXT, ZARA, etc., casual brands, you don't need to go to department stores. Perhaps if you become a bit older then you will enjoy shopping at department stores.

In the north of Tokio is one of the biggest shopping malls in Japan.
It is called aeon Lake Town.
Use JR station Koshigaya Lake Town to get there, its on the JR Keiyo line.
For map use link below.

South of Tokio is also a big shopping mall,
just behind JR station Kawasaki. Use the JR Keihin-Tohoku Line to get to Kawasaki.
Dont forget the shops and many restaurants under the bus-station
in front of JR station Kawasaki,
For map use link below.

I also liked a shopping mall south-east of Kameari station. Use the Chiyoda line.
See map

There is one interesting shopping mall I know in Odaiba. It's Venus Fort. It may not be the biggest but its one of the best looking ones.

I remember when Venus Fort was first opened. It was targeting young women who wanted a "European" shopping experience. As all things involving marketing in Japan, that concept had its brief heyday before petering out. Now its placed itself as an outlet mall a short bus ride from the Ginza catering to wealthy Chinese tourists among others.
