    Apple has announced the reopening of its Shibuya retail store in Tokyo on Friday, October 26 - the same day as the launch of iPhone XR - following renovation that began almost a year ago.

    The Shibuya store opens its doors again on the same date as Apple's Covent Garden retail location in London, although the Japan store has been out of action for significantly longer.

    During the near 11 months of renovation work, the medium-sized store is likely to have undergone significant remodeling to bring it in line with SVP Angela Ahrendts' objective to increase and modernize Apple's retail presence in the country, which is currently home to nine Apple stores.

    Back in March, Ahrendts announced a five-year plan for Japan, which aims to boost and significantly increase the company's presence with "extensive modernization" and significant investment.

    The Shibuya store has been around since 2005, but Apple opened a new store in Shinjuku, Tokyo, in April and another in Kyoto in August, after teasing the opening of more retail locations in the country.

    Oh, yeah, they're Escherian and have a color palette straight off of those turquoise and purple cups from the '90s.

    It'll be interesting to see what they've done with the store, because it's a small space and has always been cramped for how busy the area is. At least there's also the new store at Shinjuku so that will help spread the load a bit more.

    Are you talking about the famous "jazz" cup?

    It'll be interesting to see what they've done after of nearly a year of remodeling and how efficient they've used the small space.

    I totally agree. Japanese typography is often among the best in the world — and that graphic is proof of it.

    As with the Shinjuku and Kyoto store openings, they've made a video for this one too:
