On March 31, 2016 caramo, inc. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan; President: Akira Nakamura), a wholly owned subsidiary of transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos), opened its first brick-and-motor store in TOKYU PLAZA GINZA for the E-Commerce website “FUJIMAKI hyakkaten” (http://fujimaki-select.com/), which is also operated by the company.

The “FUJIMAKI hyakkaten” is an E-Commerce website established in May 2012 as a pioneer in curation type commerce. It features an offering of attractive Japan-themed merchandise and products not found on other E-Commerce websites, which are exclusively available for purchase there. It also sells treasures that bring richness to life while placing importance on details such as the stories behind the products and the dedication of their craftsmen.

By opening a brick-and-motor store in TOKYU PLAZA GINZA, the “FUJIMAKI hyakkaten” aims to improve customer satisfaction through a synergistic effect with its existing E-Commerce website and Facebook fan page, as well as continuing to develop it as a base for measures targeting inbound purchasing from overseas. In addition, by realizing features such as combining bonus points from the store and the E-Commerce website and adding products seen in the store to favorites with the “FUJIMAKI hyakkaten App,” promotion of Omni-channel development will continue making it “possible to shop anytime, anywhere.”

Many products such as limited edition and custom made merchandise are sold at this first brick-and-motor store opened in TOKYU PLAZA GINZA, which is a large-scale commercial facility that was launched on March 31, 2016. The store will sell specialty products selected by “FUJIMAKI hyakkaten” including limited edition glassware made by Edo Kiriko craftsmen, newly released tote bags from “Doubleloop,” which is by far the most popular bag brand at the FUJIMAKI hyakkaten, and leather wallets that can be enjoyed as they age. Customers visiting the store can actually handle the goods and make a purchase after confirming the high quality of materials and technology.

Through the “FUJIMAKI hyakkaten,” transcosmos will deliver attractive products born from the imaginations and high technical capabilities of craftsman, not only through the E-Commerce website, but also from a real store, and transcosmos will also continue to further accelerate business development of the “global E-Commerce one-stop services” it has promoted up to now.
