Apple has opened a new Apple Retail Store in Kyoto, Japan this morning.
The opening of this new Apple Store marks the first official Apple Retail Store in Kyoto. Japan was the first country outside the U.S. where Apple opened an official Apple Store: in Tokyo, 2003. Over the next years, Apple will open and renovate several stores across Japan.
Apple Kyoto opened Saturday morning in the heart of Kyoto’s main shopping corridor. A queue of customers stretched 10 blocks down Shijō Dori to visit Apple’s first store in Kyoto, a cultural and technological hub for Japan.
