Last Apple Store north of Tokyo closes as Apple faces shrinking sales forecasts

The Apple Store in Sendai, Japan is closing after 13 years, according to a report in ITmedia News. Historically, Japan has been key to Apple’s retail strategy, as the first international Apple store opened in the Ginza shopping district in Tokyo in 2003. With the closing of the Sendai location, Apple will have only eight stores in Japan, four of which are in Tokyo, and one each in Osaka, Kyoto, Nagoya, and Fukuoka.
