Apple will open a store in Tokyo’s Shibuya district, the city’s capital of teen cool, this weekend, the company said Monday.
The store, which is Apple’s fourth in Japan and second in Tokyo, will open at 10:00 am on Saturday morning, local time, and is situated about five minutes walk from the Shibuya railway station.
Shibuya is one of several major shopping and entertainment areas in Tokyo and is best known as being a magnet for teens and those in their early 20s, although it attracts people of all ages. The area was home to many dot-com companies during the Internet boom during the late Nineties and is today home to companies like Google Japan and Amazon Japan.
Apple opened its first Japan store in November 2003. That shop, in Tokyo’s Ginza district, was also the company’s first Apple Store outside of the U.S. and has been followed by shops in Osaka and Nagoya, Japan’s second-largest and third-largest cities.
