Since the first store in 1995, GAP has established a very strong presence in Japan in a relatively short time. PAE has helped develop and implement a highly efficient roll-out standard all across Japan. The first international flagship GAP Store is located in the Shibuya Ward, one of Tokyo's busiest shopping districts. The four story building houses a GAP men's and women's retail store on the first and second floors, and a GAP gallery, office and storage space on the third floor, with a tenant space on the fourth floor penthouse. Another impressive flagship GAP store is conveniently located at the heart of Harajuku and occupies 3 floors of a newly developed, modern designed building. The store focuses inward to a tall atrium that showcases a stainless steel media image totem. Large and expansive storefront windows advertise outward to the constant flow of pedestrian traffic at this major intersection.
