IKEA is finally making its way to the Far East by opening a store in Funabashi, Chiba, Japan. I have been waiting for this to happen for quite some time. It is slated to open in 2006 and they will be holding a job fair later this month.
There are really no decent low-cost, high-quality furniture stores here in Japan. While there are some that fit a similar description their selections are either very small, ugly or of low quality.
The picture is a little dark as the day was horribly clouded and I have yet to purchase a decent flash for the Canon 20D.
I really look forward to hitting the Grand Opening of IKEA in Japan, whenever that may happen.
