FUN! JAPAN PR
ABC-MART has long been one of the must-see stores for shopaholic foreign visitors to Japan! However, shoe lovers are in for a special treat as there is now a super-sized four-story flagship store called ABC-MART GRAND STAGE in the fashionable Shibuya district of Tokyo. Here you will find the latest products from many brands such as NIKE, Adidas, and VANS, including plenty of Japan-exclusive editions. This store is unmissable for sneakerheads or fashionistas!
A must-visit: ABC-MART
ABC-MART was first established as four small stores in Tokyo in 1985 and has grown over the years to become one of Japan's leading shoe specialists, with over 1,000 stores dotted throughout Japan. Even if you have never been in one of these stores before, the logo of red letters on a yellow background will no doubt be familiar to tourists visiting Japan. ABC-MART, which has also opened stores in other Asian countries such as Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam, is committed to providing its customers with reasonably priced, high-quality, comfortable, and fashionable products under its management philosophy of "providing universal quality at universal prices”.
ABC-MART's most distinctive feature is its wide variety and selection of brands, including NIKE, Adidas, New Balance, Converse, and PUMA, in addition to VANS and Hawkins, which can usually only be found at specialty stores outside of ABC-MART. Women's and men's shoes, casual, sports or business shoes can all be found in each store. To better cater to the different needs of its customers, ABC-MART is divided into ABC-MART, ABC-MART SPORTS, and ABC-MART GRAND STAGE.
ABC-MART, with its yellow sign and red letters, can be found all over Japan. The types of shoes on the sales floor are common styles popular with many people, often selling well due to ABC-MART’s frequent special sales. ABC-MART SPORTS carries many types of sneakers - both casual and sports types - as well as sportswear.
ABC-MART GRAND STAGE is a large flagship store located in bustling downtown areas. This special branch of ABC-MART is always pursuing the latest trends and looking ahead and moving with the times towards a new era of greater "diversity”. The store stocks the latest trends to satisfy fashionable customers who are looking for something new and different. Let's take a closer look at the appeal of ABC-MART GRAND STAGE!
ABC-MART GRAND STAGE Shibuya Store is a must-see for fashionistas!
The ABC-MART GRAND STAGE Shibuya store is located in the heart of Shibuya, just a 3-minute walk from Shibuya Station. The store's exterior, with its chic black base color and white store name is designed to catch the eye of fashion lovers. A visit at night reveals a wall of large LED screens that display a variety of advertisements. Thanks to this bright glowing wall, the location of the store is instantly recognizable.
The store spans from the basement to the third floor, with a different theme on each floor. You will find everything you need, from classic sneakers, to climbing shoes, business shoes and sandals, as well as clothing, backpacks, hats, socks, and shoe care products. Believe it or not, there are over 3,000 different types of products crammed into this prime location! Despite the large number of products, the store is neatly laid out, making it easy to find whatever you are looking for. In addition, the large touch display allows you to conveniently search for what you want by brand, shoe design, size, and other criteria.
The store pays attention not only to the volume of shoes they can offer customers, but also to their quality. Special features such as men's shoes in larger sizes, new products rarely seen in other stores, rare and valuable sneakers, shoes with overseas model numbers and limited-edition Japan-exclusive shoes are available in store. New products arrive to the store almost every day. If you want to be one of the first to buy the latest sneaker releases, this should be your first stop on your trip to Japan! The super cool street-style artwork on the store's shutters and throughout the store is also worth a look.
The basement floor is decorated in soft colors, with attractive displays positioned for easy viewing and gorgeous scents dispersed through the air to provide a comfortable shopping experience. The lively decorative paintings by the artist "warashi" are also a delight to look at. The main attractions on this floor are the many NIKE Jordan sneakers, huge range of New Balance sneakers, and the fashionable clothing. You can also find children's NIKE shoes here, which are rarely seen in shoe stores in Shibuya.
The main products on the first floor are the two most popular and inquired about brands, NIKE and Adidas. In particular, the well-known AIR JORDAN series features prominently in the display in a great variety of colors. Sneaker collectors are sure to find a great bargain! The display at the entrance changes every month, so you can see the latest trends as soon as you enter the store.
This floor features New Balance, PUMA, FILA, Reebok, and ASICS men's shoes and men's fashion, as well as clothing, hats, and socks. Among this huge selection are sneakers from the French brand PATRICK, which are all made in Japan, and recommended for those seeking durable, high-quality products.
VANS fans will be excited to see the "wall of shoes" on the third floor! There are also VANS Japan-exclusive T-shirts that sell like hotcakes as soon as they hit the shelves, so don't hesitate to buy one when you see it. Other popular choices include thick-soled, waterproof, and ultra-lightweight Converse shoes. On the same floor, you will find Dr. Martens and RED WING leather shoes, Timberland and SALOMON mountain trekking shoes, and Teva sandals. If you are looking for sports sneakers, head directly to the third floor!
Don't miss 'shibuya-san' and 'SHIBUYA SKY' when you come to Shibuya!
Tourist service center 'shibuya-san' lies next to Shibuya Station and has all the information and services you need, including pamphlets full of useful information. There is also a luggage storage service and a smart phone charging service. Foreign tourist ambassadors who speak different languages are on hand to help visitors to Japan and provide detailed information on hidden scenic spots and restaurants. All of this is local information that cannot be found on the Internet!
The ‘SHIBUYA SKY’ observation deck on the 45th and 46th floors of SCRAMBLE SQUARE has received plenty of attention since its opening in November 2019. Visitors take the elevator from the 14th floor ‘SKY GATE’ entrance to the 45th floor, then take a scenic escalator up to the top of the 46th floor ‘SKY STAGE’, where a glass wall surrounds the deck, offering a panoramic 360-degree view of central Tokyo. The view is incredible at sunset and also at night when it is lit up with all the beautiful big city lights. In case of rain, visitors can also relax and enjoy the spectacular view from the indoor observatory on the 46th floor!
