Now, in light of Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike’s announcement that people should stay home due to the spike in coronavirus cases, some department stores in Tokyo have decided to close this weekend, March 28 and 29. After all, it's not like you were planning on going outside on the weekend anyway, right?

The Ikebukuro, Yurakucho, Shinjuku and Shinjuku EST branches of Lumine will also be closed, in addition to the Newoman branch in Shinjuku, Yokohama and Machida. The following Lumine buildings will keep their food floors open but their general shopping floors closed: Omiya, Kitasenju, Tachikawa and Ogikubo.
