Quaint and retro!It was such a delightful experience to window shop here! Stepping through the front doors seem to transport one back in time! A true shopper’s paradise!
Charming Old Style Department StoreNot your typical modern department store! It even look more like a museum than anything else. We appreciate the terrace which gives a splendid view of city lights and the cafe and restaurant which offer good menu and charming old style ambiance. A great place to be, like time travelling to the fifties...
Reminescence of old timesBeautiful department store build during the 30s by a Japanese family offering beautiful new and old style clothing and everyday use japanese items. The management succeed well in maintaininging the charm and ambience of the period through clever uses of lighting. You can go to the top floor to admire the small open floor complete with memorabilia articles then go down each floor and stroll along alleys between nice merchandise.
one of Attractive placeOne of the most attractive department store.It's more kind of product and best part is top roof. Many kind of souvenirs.
Restored old-style boutiqueIt was just across the street from our hotel, so it was obvious that we visited Hayashi. It was originally constructed and opened on December 5, 1932, during Japanese rule. The elevators in the building were considered state-of-art at that time. The classy store was bombed during the WWII and was left in ruins. The reconstruction of the building, that started in 2006 and finished in 2014, kept most of the original interior designs, from the elevator, the floor materials, the stairways to the rooftop and ceilings. Nowadays it once again serves as a shop with some local (but not only) products. There's also a rooftop terrace, Shinto shrine and cafe. Nice to see the results of the reconstruction.
