Shirokiya to debut Japan Village Walk area in Ala Moana Center’s new Ewa Wing in Hawaii

The Shirokiya department store in Ala Moana Center has unveiled plans to open a $35 million retail, restaurant and entertainment area next year in the regional shopping mall’s newly redeveloped Ewa Wing.

“Our mission is to introduce various Japanese food selections, Japanese traditional culture, and the spirit of Japanese hospitality (omotenashi), from Hawaii to the world,” Shirokiya Holdings Inc. project coordinator Daisuke Morisaid in a statement on Wednesday.

The company said its goal is to create a traditional Japanese town reminiscent of old Kyoto, which served as the capital of Japan for nearly a thousand years before that function was moved to Tokyo.
