In light of the recent Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, Tokyo has taken several preventative measures to inhibit the spread of the virus by temporarily closing schools, cancelling large-scale events (including two cherry blossom festivals) and shutting down major attractions for a period of two weeks. Furthermore, a number of department stores have announced a change in opening hours for the month of March 2020 as a precaution to protect shoppers as well as store employees. 

While the opening hours have only been shortened by a small amount, it’s best to keep the time changes in mind so you’re not left hanging should you decide to window shop high-end brands or have a gander at the myriad of food stands in the depachika
