Local gourmet dishes from all over Japan, such as this year's Grand Prize winner "NOUGAT°C Sandwich", are on sale for a limited time only!
In the program “OMOTENASHI Selection” (hereinafter referred to as “Omotenashi Selection”), which discovers and certifies excellent Japanese products and services and disseminates them both domestically and internationally, the Omotenashi Selection award-winning products will be sold for a limited time at the Matsuzakaya Ueno store in Tokyo in 2023. It will be held from Wednesday, August 9th.
This time, which will be held for the first time in three years, 15 companies that have won the Omotenashi Selection will participate. We will sell a lot of gems that shine with the skill.
The Ueno/Okachimachi area, where the Matsuzakaya Ueno store is located, is a lively area that attracts many domestic and foreign tourists due to its convenient access to Narita Airport and the Ameyoko shopping street, which is full of the atmosphere of downtown Tokyo. This POP-UP will be held for two weeks at the event space at the entrance of the first floor of the Matsuzakaya Ueno store, which is crowded during the summer vacation season. We usually have a large selection of products that are only available through mail order, and products that you can only find at local stores.
It will be a valuable opportunity to meet products with “unique Japanese appeal” carefully selected by foreign experts, so please invite your friends and family and come visit us.
