tdr0716_Where did 1st Disney Store opened?


“Disney Store” carries cute Disney goods.

As of May 2015, there are 47 stores and 4 outlet stores selling newest items or typical items in Japan.

Anyway, Disney Store is great for Disney fans that are in all over Japan, but where did the 1st memorable Disney Store opened and when?

The first Disney Store that opened in Japan was at commercial building that locates near large shopping center “Mycal Honmoku (now: AEON Honmoku) in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture.

Disney Store was opened as “Disney Store Honmoku” and opened on August 21st 1992 (now it is closed).

Isn’t it a bit surprising that 1st Disney Store opened in Yokohama rather than Tokyo?
