In front of Tokyo station, popular consumer electronics chain Yamada Denki has opened Concept LABI TOKYO as a base for spreading the word about cutting-edge concepts!
Yamada Denki is one of Japan's largest nationwide consumer electronics chains, both in terms of sales and number of stores. On October 30, the chain opened Concept LABI TOKYO in the center of the city at the Yaesu exit of Tokyo Station, the front door to Japan.
With this comes the arrival of a new store offering leading manufacturers' latest goods and services, and a new way of life. Making the most of the strength unique among consumer electronics chains—a nationwide store network—this is a new Yamada Denki seen nowhere else, providing both Japan and the wider world with up-to-the-minute information.
