Apple opens a new store in Tokyo. Before the big opening on Saturday, the company shared beautiful shots of the interior and exterior of the new store.
The store is located near the famous business center of Tokyo – Shinjuku Station. It has a new generation design by Jony Ive and Angela Ahrends. This is the first store in Japan with this design.
As you can see in the photo, from the street, the store looks like a 37-meter glass showcase, in front of which the local Holly trees grow.
As with other new and refurbished stores over the past two years Apple, this one contains wooden tables and shelves, wooden accessory cabinets, a massive 6K screen with seating (Forum), and visitor interactive displays.
Apple calls their stores City Squares because they can be used by locals to gather and hang out.
This is the first of several that Apple is about to open in Japan.
Angela Arends, senior vice president of retail and internet commerce Apple, says the following:
The history Apple in Japan is long and special. The Shinjuku store is the first of several we will open in Japan in the next few years. We really want the local population to experience the best it has to offer Apple.
Apple opened its first overseas store in Tokyo in 2003. Since then, the company's stores have been visited by over 70 million people in a country of 128 million.
