If you want to shop in Shibuya, this is the place! Tokyu Plaza Shibuya, stimulating the playful spirit of adults
Tokyu Plaza Shibuya, a commercial facility targeting adults, will open in December 2019 in Shibuya, a city that attracts many visitors from overseas. It will feature about 70 stores that will satisfy even the most sophisticated and playful adults. Let's take a look at four of the most popular stores.
1. "Pepper PARLOR," a futuristic café where robots serve customers
Pepper PARLOR is a fun café where robots provide "hospitality". When you enter the cafe, you are greeted by a line of humanoid robots called "Pepper". Their role is to help you order and pay the bill.
"Yes, please place your order using this tablet! Suddenly, Pepper, whose eyes I had met, spoke to me.
"How many people are there? The conversation began immediately. (The Pepper at the reception desk can also speak Chinese and English.
If you are unsure of what to order, Pepper will recognize your face, analyze your age, gender, and facial expression at the time, and make a recommendation. When you try it, you'll see "You look great! and recommended "Shiratama and raspberry grain bean paste butter". I feel more and more energetic!
Also, Pepper will sit with you, play with you, and even take your picture.
In addition to Pepper, "Servi", a food delivery and transportation robot, "NAO", a small bipedal robot in charge of dancing (on this day, he showed us a kung fu dance), and "Whiz", a sterilizing and cleaning robot, were also very active.
2. Discover Japanese souvenirs with a playful spirit at BEAMS
Select shop BEAMS has created a shop with "Japan" as its keyword, offering fashion, pop culture, and even Japanese "artisan" products. Let's take a look at two of the most playful products.
Silhouette bookend [Sumo]
These bookends represent the efforts of sumo, Japan's national sport. Two wrestlers are supporting a book from both sides.
Recommended for interior decoration as a unique item.
Gattai Fuku T-Shirt
It looks like a toy package, doesn't it?
This is a unique Japanese culture that originally started as "toys that came with sweets" called "Shokugan", and now, in the style of BEAMS, it's sweets (gum) with "clothes" as an added bonus. Interesting!
There is velcro tape on the t-shirt itself, and you can attach items such as pouches and passcases to it.
3. 2mm-thin functional glasses "Paper Glasses"
Look at these glasses. Thinness. Just 2 mm.
These are eyeglasses made by Paper Glass, an eyeglass specialty store handcrafted by artisans in Sabae City, Fukui Prefecture, one of the world's leading eyeglass production centers.
They are thin, lightweight, and compact.
When folded, they can be tucked into a book like a bookmark and fit into a long wallet, making them convenient to carry.
They are very popular overseas as corrective glasses, reading glasses, and as souvenirs that can only be bought in Japan!
4. Savor the night in Shibuya at the rooftop garden! CÉ LA VI RESTAURANT & SKY BAR
At the end of a mature day in Shibuya, you want to relax and enjoy the night view.
