Wako 和光

4-5-11 Ginza, Chuo City, Tokyo

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

A shopping haven and iconic prewar monument

Located on the corner of Ginza Yonchome in Tokyo’s swish shopping district, Wako is both a beloved landmark best known for its clock tower and a popular luxury-specialized department store. Owned by the world-famous Seiko watch brand, the building with the clock tower dates back to before World War II and miraculously survived the devastating firebombing of Tokyo.

The store offers watches, fine jewelry, handbags, and homeware from both domestic and international brands and there is also an art gallery on the sixth floor. Some delectable foodstuffs perfect as souvenirs at the neighboring Wako Annex building are available. A tea salon on the second floor offers refined desserts and a light lunch menu.
