Apple Stores are known for their sleek, minimalist design, but the latest Tokyo retail location might be the best looking store Apple has ever built. The Verge reports that new store opened in the Omotesando shopping district on Friday, positioned alongside other high-end retailers such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Apple’s recently hired retail VP Angela Ahrendts, former CEO of Burberry, was in attendance to celebrate the grand opening.
The Verge notes that the Omotesando store shares its design with the Stanford store that was featured prominently during the reveal of the iPhone 5s, complete with three glass walls and a metal roof. The Omotesando store also has a spiral staircase leading to the lower level, much like the one on Fifth Avenue in New York City. This is the third Apple Store to open in Tokyo and the ninth in Japan as a whole.
We’ve learned from previous reports that Apple Store visits are continuing to climb year after year. As long as customers keep visiting, Apple is going to continue expanding.
