Just opened in March 2013, KITTE is a shopping mall across the street from and directly connected underground to Tokyo Station.
Its 98 fascinating, highly original shops and restaurants reflect KITTE's strong "Japan" appeal and include 30 places selling fashion and fashion accessories. Prices for clothes and accessories tend to be more affordable than in shops in the Marunouchi and Shin-Marunouchi Buildings. The first basement floor features outposts of popular vendors of delicious traditional and modern delicacies representing many regions of Japan, all the way from Hokkaido to Okinawa. Plenty of free samples are on offer!
KITTE (the Japanese word for postage stamp) also includes the Intermediatheque (IMT), a museum jointly operated by Japan Post Co. Ltd. and the University Museum of the University of Tokyo (UMUT). The permanent exhibition of IMT consists of about 7,000 artefacts, which have been selected from the world-class collections accumulated by the University of Tokyo since its foundation in 1877. These objects are exhibited with a unique, eclectic design approach that the museum calls "retrofuturism." From wildlife specimens - including the extinct "elephant bird" Aepyornis, Moa eggs and giant crocodile skeletons - to the world's largest gold and platinum nuggets, to ancient pottery, IMT offers a new way to encounter important objects from both natural and cultural history.
IMT also hosts special exhibitions and events that highlight contemporary scientific research and artistic expression, while keeping to the same "retrofuturistic" curatorial approach as the permanent exhibition.
