From May 21st until June 6th, a Marimekko pop-up store will visit Roppongi Hills to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the iconic Finnish design house. There will be a variety of merchandise available to purchase, including pieces that are only available at the event such as patterned tin boxes, zipper pouches, and mugs.
In efforts to mitigate against crowding, numbered admission tickets with allocated times will be provided to those wishing to shop at the event. The store opens from 11 am during the pop-up dates, and tickets will be provided from 10:20 am each day.
The Marimekko pop-up event takes place at Roppongi Hills "Hillsbox" (2F). There is direct access via a concourse from Roppongi Station's Exit 1C (Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line).
For those who opt to drive, the venue is around 10 minutes from the Shibuya exit of the Shuto Expressway. There are several paid parking lots on-site.
