PARCO to open Harajuku ZERO GATE


December 20, 2016


PARCO Co., Ltd. (“PARCO”) announced today that it will open Harajuku ZERO GATE*, a new shopping complex in Jingumae, Shibuya, and has agreed a lease with the owner of the planned site.


1. Outline of the plan

The planned site is located in one of Japan’s highest profile and most fashionable shopping areas, with large-scale shopping facilities, major stores by Japanese and international brands, and curated retail stores. It is also close to venues being used for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games – Yoyogi National Gymnasium, which will be used for competitive events, and the New National Stadium Japan, which will host the opening and closing ceremonies – so the number of visitors to the area from both Japan and overseas is expected to increase.

PARCO is leasing the planned site through its ZERO GATE business and with the construction of Harajuku ZERO GATE* aims to contribute to creating further vibrancy in Harajuku by communicating a new appeal in Japan and abroad.
