Okay...let the exploration begin from top floor to bottom!
12th Floor: UNIQLO Ginza Special
12th floor is the most unique in the building. They offer items which are not yet on sale in the other UNIQLO locations as well as seasonal items.
This is a Yukata which is a casual kimono for summer. This particular Yukata is limited edition and its price range is 4,000-6,000 yen. Reasonable price meets modern style... Of course young Japanese girls love it!
The Yukata patterns inspired by Yumeji Takehisa, who was a famous painter of womens’ portraits, are available in this year. Retro modern hits the Japanese summer scene!
Of course there are kids’ sizes available!
They have some items inspired by Japanese Kabuki too!
Another hot item in summer is its STETECO Series. Steteco originally appeared as mens’ undershorts during the Meiji era when Japan began accepting western culture. They come in loose, relaxed fit, comfortable, but they became a not-so-cool-to-wear item.
However, UNIQLO made them back in fashion with their creative designs! UNIQLO features them as comfy roomwear in this summer!
This pair has Kabuki mask design on them! How about getting one as souvenir?
For ladies, the RELACO series is available!
It's hard to choose one from so many designs...
They also have T-shirts inspired by the Japanese anime, “Ghost in the Shell.”
Another line of T-shirts was made in cooperation with Sanrio, where HELLO KITTY is from!
They even collaborated with Osamu Tezuka, the godfather of Japanese Manga! His famous Manga characters are on T-shirts!
The T-shirts below are at WORLD OMIYAGE section (Omiyage means souvenir in Japanese). These T-shirts feature famous sights, animals, food, etc from different countries. Their T-shirts have Sumo and Mt. Fuji from Japan, Kangaroo from Australia, Eiffel Tower from France, Mango flavored shaved ice from Taiwan, etc... It is fun to see what's on the T-shirts!
