IKEA is known for its sprawling locations that offer plenty of space for people to wander and get inspired and the newly opened IKEA Harajuku is a destination that's full of ideas for urban living and tiny spaces. The four-storey retail space in the heart of Tokyo contains the first-of-its-kind IKEA convenience store where takeout can be ordered to enjoy an affordable taste of Sweden. The store also serves as a place where people can pick up reusable bags, eco-friendly freezer bags and even cups of plant-based ramen noodles.
IKEA Harajuku also invites people to enjoy refreshments like coffee, plant-based ice cream and cinnamon rolls, and notably The Sweden Cafe at IKEA Harajuku deviates from the norm of offering meatballs by sharing sweet and savory flatbreads.
