It’s been announced that SMAP’s annual store, SMAP SHOP, will open at Akasaka Sacas on December 8th.
SMAP SHOP has opened its doors for a limited term every year since 2005. This year’s store theme will be “RUNNING SMAP”, and so the floor of the shop will be designed after an athletic track.
The store will display outfits worn by the SMAP members, life-sized footprint replicas, as well as video clips of the members from their debut era.
SMAP SHOP will feature a bevy of original goods, such as a photo book, a pen set, copies of their popular 390 yen single, and a new live DVD entitled “THANKS FOR BEIJING” in a shop-limited jacket.
Member Inagaki Goro commented, “I visit SMAP SHOP every year. This year’s theme will be ‘RUNNING SMAP’, so we will continue to run alongside everyone. Please, come and visit the shop.”
SMAP SHOP will be open from December 8th to January 9th from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm. Since the shop attracts a large crowd every year, sources suggests, “the popular products will sell out, so please come early.”
