The author who participated in the media preview prior to the opening. This time, we will introduce you to the hottest stores as soon as possible!
◆ You can actually try the tools! The first DIY specialty store in the Kanto region
The facility is directly connected to the east exit of Futakotamagawa Station and arrives within a few minutes on foot. Restaurants and general stores are lined up in an open-style open space.
As soon as you go up to the 2nd floor, you will see " DIY FACTORY FUTAKOTAMAGAWA " on your left. DIY Tool.com, a mail-order site for DIY and gardening supplies, is a real store that operates mainly in Osaka, and this is the first store to open in Kanto.
Tools and DIY tools are displayed all over the store, including the walls, so you can forget the time and take a closer look.
We also have hooks that allow you to easily decorate your room and tile stickers for "decolfa".
This is the store's original tool case "cotetsu". It is handmade by a craftsman in Niigata, and it is popular with women because of its unprecedented color variations. It looks good to store stationery and handicrafts.
Also, in the workspace set up in the store, you can try most of the tools on sale in advance.
Workshops are scheduled to be held from time to time, so if you like DIY, you'll want to visit this shop once. The staff were all cheerful and kind!
◆ A wide selection of rare vegetables and popular kitchen accessories "Gardens Marché"
Next is "Gardens Marché", a select shop for vegetables and kitchen miscellaneous goods sent directly from the production area operated by Yoshida Ornamental Fish Sales. As you can see, there are many rare varieties of fresh vegetables that you can't find in ordinary supermarkets, and the manager will give you advice on how to cook.
In addition, the lineup of popular kitchen miscellaneous goods such as "WECK" and "Noda Akira" has been enhanced. We have a complete set of items from your favorite brands.
All the tableware is wonderful, and you can get hints for living a polite and high-quality life.
◆ "ZARA HOME" that makes you feel dreamy just by being there
Home accessory brand "ZARA HOME" affiliated with fashion brand "ZARA". The second store in Tokyo sells various items such as bed linen, interior goods, and tableware.
I've been interested in it for a long time, but I didn't have a chance to go there. The first thing that surprised me when I entered the store was the number of products! Items are displayed in a narrow space from the top to the bottom of the large store, and you want to take a closer look when you have time to spare. There are plenty of tastes and colors, so you will definitely find what you like. I would like to enjoy total coordination while referring to the display.
◆ Don't miss the food that can only be eaten here!
If you get tired of shopping, take a meal break. There are many restaurants in the facility, but the most notable is the gourmet store "Mallorca", which will be the first in Japan to open in Spain.
The store is a long-established gourmet store that is also a purveyor to the Spanish royal family. Inside the store, which has a celebrity feel based on red and black, "delicatessen" such as sandwiches and delicatessen, "pastereria (sweets)", and "panaderia (bread)" are lined up.
I tried some deli, but the deliciousness of the ingredients themselves such as prosciutto and tomatoes is fully utilized and it is delicious anyway. If it's nearby, I'll definitely go there every day.
Although I could not introduce this time, the new brand "Futakotamagawa Tsutaya Home Appliances" of Culture Convenience Club (CCC) is scheduled to open on May 3rd. I'm really looking forward to being a lifestyle-proposing home appliance store that mixes home appliances, books, and services.
In fact, for me, Futakotamagawa is a city of memories that my parents often brought to me when I was a kid. Compared to that time, it has undergone a transformation at the level of Taro Urashima, but I feel a sense of security that has not changed since long ago in urban development that makes use of rivers and abundant nature. Rakuten's office and Tokyu Excel Hotel are scheduled to enter the adjacent high-rise tower, so it seems that it will be more and more crowded in the future. It may become a city you admire for both "living" and "working."
