TASTE THE DIFFERENCE IN TOKYO

IMAGES /

Japanese high-end supermarket chain Fukushimaya recently opened a new format store in Tokyo.

The opening of the Fukushimaya ‘Tasting Market’ is the third in the city by the store group which sells higher quality food – all pre-selected by buyers to meet stringent safety and quality standards. The business’s two other stores in Tokyo are in Roppongi Hills and Osaki.

Founded more than 45 years ago, part of the Fukushimaya brand promise is around trusting in terms of provenance, for example, even the level of nitrogen in the soil that the produce is grown in is labelled and highlighted to the customer.

Designed by Japanese architects Schemata, the new store design for the Tasting Market is kept modern yet utilitarian with zinc-aluminium alloy galvanised steel pipe fixturing teamed with timber for a factory/warehouse feel.

But the basic looks belie the service and standards of the produce and experience on offer. There is a fully functioning open kitchen in the space and an a la carte delicatessen to nibble at and discover new favourites.
