Apple's first retail store in Japan will open in Tokyo's Ginza shopping district on November 30. The five-floor Apple(R) Store Ginza is Apple's first retail store outside the U.S.

"Over the last two years, Apple has redefined computer retailing for Mac and PC users in the U.S., and now we are bringing the best personal computer buying experience to one of the greatest shopping destinations in the world -- the Ginza in Tokyo," said Ron Johnson, Apple's senior vice president of Retail.

Some features of the Apple Store Ginza include:

  • five floors where customers can shop for and learn about the latest Apple products;
  • a 27-ft long Genius Bar, where visitors can ask a Mac(R) "Genius" questions or receive product service;
  • an 84-seat theater, where customers can attend workshops, watch demonstrations of Apple's latest products, or attend "Made on a Mac" events;
  • more than 400 customer events every month including a Studio Series of hands-on training classes;
  • an Internet cafe where anyone can check email or use Apple's iChat AV and iSight(TM) digital video conference cameras to video conference with friends and family;
  • Mac specialists who speak 10 different languages including Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Thai, Korean, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and English;
  • a software selection with hundreds of titles for the Mac; and
  • a Kids Section devoted to educational software and games children.
