An Inside Look at Prime Japanese Retail Markets


The Japanese retail industry has had a sluggish sales start to Q3. Nevertheless, there remain a significant number of bright spots where investors and retailers alike are focusing their attention. Driven by key trends including millennial buying habits, multi-channel retail through e-commerce, and the “Sephorization” of the cosmetic retail market, consumers are still flocking to a number of key locations for some retail therapy.

With the goal of helping investors, developers, and the wider retail ecosystem get under the skin of Japanese retail, we’ve put together an in-depth report on “Prime Retail Markets Across Japan”. Within the report we’ve investigated the state of retail in 6 key Japanese retail markets, from stylish Ginza to up-and-coming Osaka. We’ve also picked out some trends changing the way that Japanese consumers are shopping, and how the Japanese retail sector is changing in the run up to the 2020 Summer Olympic games.

Here’s an at-a-glance summary of the report featuring a sample of the key statistics you can find in the report:
