Kuramoto Diary vol.508: Latest news

We have reproduced the famous room of Misato Katsuragi, one of the main characters of the anime film "Evangelion", in our Ginza store. This reproduction is scheduled to last from June 7 to August 31.

On the other hand, 80% of people work in local economies, and if we can create a society in which they are treated well, Japan will regain its prosperity.” This is a passage from a book co-authored by Kazuhiko Tomiyama and Soichiro Tahara, "The New L-Type Economy" (Kadokawa Shinsho). Along with retail and construction, the food and beverage...

Kuramoto Diary vol.507: Rebuilding the local economy from restaurants

Kuramoto Diary vol.506: “Latest News"

By Hiroshi SAKURAI, April 2021 Today, I would like to talk about to you about how stupid I am. Recently, I did a medical check-up, like every year, and I was shocked to hear that my height had reduced from 175 cm to 172cm! My weight has also been steadily increasing in proportion to my shrinking height. When I had my waist measured, I was also shocked: 86cm.
