Tachikawa Station has the largest number of passengers west of Shinjuku Station on the JR Chuo Line. In recent years, redevelopment has progressed around the station, and especially on the north side, there are many urban shops such as Isetan, movie theaters, lofts, and Bic Camera. If you go a little further, you can find the IKEA store and LaLaport when it opened last year. Personally, I'm hoping that it will become the "city I want to live in" next to Kichijoji.

Our Don Quijote (Don Quijote) descends into this city with such high potential ... It can be said that it is inevitable.

That's why I went to the "MEGA Don Quijote Tachikawa store" that opened today (February 5th)!

The place is about 5 minutes on foot from the north exit of Tachikawa station. Don Penn was also rushing to the opening on that day.

According to the information at the time of opening, the store is "an" urban hybrid store "that combines the essence of various store formats developed by the Don Quijote Group." In other words, is it the culmination of the past ? Including clothing, cosmetics, and beauty goods, foods such as 4 fresh foods (fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, meat, and prepared foods), and abundant daily necessities are on sale.

Donki's floor is from the 1st basement floor to the 5th floor. There are specialty stores such as beauty salons, beauty salons, and maid cafes (!) On the floor, but this time I will omit them and report only on Don Quijote. By the way, the 6th floor is Daiso, and the 7th floor is Sabage Shop & Field.

Since it used to be a general merchandise store, the main aisle inside the store has a width of about 1.7m, and shopping carts can pass through it. Escalators and elevators are fully equipped, and the inside of the store is bright and open. It may be a shame for those who like Donki's mess, but Tachikawa is a city where a wide range of age groups, from children to the elderly, live. You can say that it suits your needs.

By the way, the display shelves are still dense like mangrove forests, so don't worry.

◆ There is also a wine bar and a bread corner!

The author paid particular attention to the first floor, which sells groceries and alcohol. There is a wine bar and a bread corner!

Bread !?
Bread !?

It seems that there have been several bread corners baked in the store so far, but this is the first time in Tokyo. With an abundant assortment of more than 40 types, it costs almost 100 yen (excluding tax, the same applies below). There is such a bakery nowadays !?

It's a little warm even when I bring it back to work, and I'm glad that it's baked on the spot. By the way, the donuts limited to the Tachikawa store (50 yen for this) are not sweet at all, so please season them with honey or jam.

On the other hand, a glass of wine is 50 yen (90 ml) at the wine bar. You can also drink American fine wine "Opus One" for 1,800 yen (30 ml). Enjoy with prosciutto and cheese.

The first basement floor, which handles fresh food, was as lively as the basement of a department store, with a corner full of festive feelings such as all-you-can-stuff cut pine and a buffet of dried fruits, a butcher shop, a fish store, and a side dish corner where you can see the cooking scenery.

Fresh food in the basement! Wasshoi!

◆ Don Quijote is born here!

In addition to the overwhelming product lineup and "surprisingly cheap" prices, we are also conscious of the fun of visiting the store. It is certainly a donki that seems to be the culmination of the past. Or rather, let me call you Don Quijote department store!

As a writer living in a nearby station, I definitely want to use it at the Showa Kinen Park fireworks display rather than for everyday use. But I'm sure it will be very crowded ...

The grilled peaches introduced earlier will be offered at the opening price of 100 yen during February. I was wondering if I would really move to Tachikawa from the morning.

That's all from the field.
