A new grand shopping destination at Asakusa Station

The building linked to Tobu SKYTREE Line Asakusa Station is reborn as Asakusa EKIMISE. The name takes inspiration from the nearby Nakamise with hopes to attract as lively a crowd as the celebrated shopping street. EKIMISE revives the Neo-Renaissance architecture of the original structure completed in the early Showa period. The symbolic grand clock has made a comeback, too.
EKIMISE comprises a total of 177 stores, including Matsuya Asakusa, which enjoys a presence there since the original building first opened, and 52 new shops.
The biggest attraction is East-Tokyo Market Wanoichi, on the seventh floor. It features a collection of miscellanea representing quality design and honoring the tradition of Japanese craftsmanship.
