Sleek, stylish, and white. Like a giant iPod in the sky. This Marui Department Store branch caters to the younger crowd. In fact, it's known as 01Young in company literature. Like many department stores, wall space is at a premium, thus what windows there are are small. But they're black and run around the building like racing stripes, giving an even sleeker look to the building's curved face. The building also has chrome accents to keep it from being too stark. Of course, there's a giant neon "0101" at the most visible corners, and vertical standards reinforce the logo.

Quick Facts
Notes
    > The "0101" isn't pronounced "zero one zero one." It's pronounced "Marui." The 0101 is just the company's ubiquitous logo.
