Apple will open its second Japanese store in Shinsaibashi, Osaka on 28 August, the company has announced, along with the offer of a free T-shirt for the first 1500 visitors.
Apple's first Japanese store opened last December in Tokyo's Ginza district.
Like the Ginza store, the Shinsaibashi outlet will provide a range of hardware and software-centric training events. The location will also play host to presentations from pro Mac users and getting-started advice sessions for beginners all of which cover a range of computing topics, from games to digital photography.
Apple's next major store opening is expected to its 20,000sq ft London venue, currently under development on Regent Street. Apple has been hiring staff through the summer in anticipation of an autumn opening. ®
