The Marunouchi district may not be known as one of Tokyo‘s most dynamic shopping zones, but the sizeable number of government institutions and large corporations which have settled here comes with well-paid staff who obviously require regular retail therapy to let off steam. As such, the area offers plenty of interesting stores and restaurants where to indulge during lunch break or after work. Needless to say, it’s a consumer dynamic which totally appeals to Apple, and following the opening of two other stores in key shopping locations across town such as Ginza, Shibuya and Harajuku, the company has opened its ninth and biggest outpost in Marunouchi. Situated on two floors of the Mitsubishi Building directly across from Tokyo Station, the Apple Marunouchi store features the brand’s newest design codes. The large store windows have aluminium frames, and indoors, they’re adorned with large Japanese bamboo plants which add a relaxing element to the setting. The lofty ground floor features wooden tables presenting iPhones, MacBooks and AppleWatches, and at the centre of the store an atrium is situated which is two floors high. Additionally, there’s the so-called Boardroom for business talks with business teams. The second floor provides a repair service desk, technical support, and a section where the Today at Apple programme is presented. Mind you, the new Apple store is not only big is size, but also surprisingly cosmopolitan as it’s staffed with 130 people who speak a total of 15 languages from across the planet.
