Supermarkets Open, Many Department Stores, Malls, Starbucks, Parks Closed in Tokyo This Weekend: List

Please see this post: for a list of stores closed or operating on shortened hours in Tokyo on April 4th and 5th.

==============

Following Tokyo Gov Koike’s call for Tokyo residents to refrain from nonessential outings this weekend (March 28th to 29th), many department stores, shopping malls, large retailers, and theaters will be closed or operating on shortened hours.

Major brand name establishments closed this weekend include Starbucks, which will close over 500 shops throughout Tokyo and Kanagawa and Saitama prefectures for the next two days.

However, all major supermarket chains in the city are open, but some will have shortened hours. All major convenience store chains will also be operating on regular hours.

Many online supermarket services have announced that they will temporarily suspend service because they aren’t able to guarantee that stock will be on hand due to high demand at their associated bricks-and-mortar stores. The Nikkei reports that Amazon (which partners with LIFE supermarket) will temporarily stop taking online grocery orders starting on March 28th. Rakuten and SEIYU’s online grocery delivery services have also announced that they have temporarily stopped taking orders.

Sports facilities and barbecue areas at all parks operated by the Tokyo metropolitan government will be closed from March 28th to April 12th.
