Some of the brands that occupy this retail area consist of high fashion, gourmet cuisine and cutting edge home ware. The selection of the brands is done based on research that reveals the rising trend in Japanese food, art and culture in Malaysia.Inspired by Asakusa, a district in Tokyo that blends the urban cosmopolitan feel with rich heritage and traditions of Japan, Tokyo Street welcomes visitors with a giant lantern, in the same way as the iconic landmark of Asakusa, the Senso-ji Buddhist Temple.
The opening of the Tokyo Street was officiated by His Excellency Shigeru Nakamura, the Japanese Ambassador to Malaysia and Datin Cindy Lim, Deputy Chairman of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. Datin Cindy Lim said, “Japan is a land that is full of interesting and fascinating culture, art, food, music and fashion that appeal to everyone. We are proud that Tokyo Street, a vibrant, must-visit destination for locals and tourists can only be found at one place in Southeast Asia: in Malaysia and at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, one of the world’s best shopping malls.”The presence of Tokyo Street in the local shopping scene definitely brings more exciting varieties to the vibrant Malaysian shopping scene.
