「PARCO_ya」

PARCO_ya, a new shopping complex brand, opened in the east side of Tokyo as the first PARCO format store to open in the 23 wards in Tokyo in 44 years. PARCO_ya opened on the first through sixth floors of Ueno Frontier Tower, which was built on the site of the former South Wing of Matsuzakaya Ueno. The store composition is designed to promote circulation with TOHO Cinemas Ueno on the 7th floor and the neighboring Matsuzakaya Ueno, and to satisfy a broad cross-section of customers who visit the Ueno and Okachimachi area, such as users of the offices on the upper levels.

Under the store concept of “a slightly up-market, sophisticated spot that’s fun to visit with friends,” PARCO_ya incorporates 52 stores opening in Tokyo’s Ueno Okachimachi area for the first time, as well as 11 companies with strong ties to the local community. The facility aims to grow in step with the local market, for example by offering exclusive panda merchandise.

Proposing Topical Foods

We are meeting the needs of a wide range of customer segments, mainly with topical cafes, long-established local stores, and famous specialty stores. We are also introducing cafes to create communication spaces on each floor.

Ueno has a strong association with pandas. The giant panda cub Xiang Xiang, which had its first birthday in June, 2018, has become increasingly popular. PARCO_ya is proposing panda-themed merchandise and menus at many stores to provide visitors with an exciting encounter with the highly individualistic pandas.
