Costco Kyoto: Opening Day is…
Posted by Kyle Yates in Kansai Shopping
We have been writing about the Kyoto Costco store in Yawatashi for months. People who live near Kyoto have been anticipating and wondering when it will finally open ever since we got wind that it would be built in Yawata.
Well, get ready because we may have found out the day it will open!
Locals in the Yawata Costco area have heard, either from a little bird or from those who work or will work at Costco there that the new store will open on Dec 8th, in time for Christmas and right after something else in the area happens on the 7th. Whether this is fact or not still remains to be seen. But this is what we’ve been hearing and it would be smart on Costco’s part to open before Christmas.
By the way, if anyone reading this article is not a member yet, now is the time to get a membership. If you go to the Yawata store and buy your membership, the annual fee is around 1000 yen cheaper right now before doors open.
