Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. and Nagashima Resort Co., Ltd. today announced that they will start work on the Mitsui Outlet Park Jazz Dream NAGASHIMA Fifth-Stage Expansion Plan. Since the opening of the first stage of this facility in 2002 there have been three expansions as it has continued to grow. Under the Fifth-Stage Expansion Plan, the number of existing stores will be increased by about 40 stores, expanding the entire facility to a scale of about 280 stores, making it the largest outlet mall in Japan in terms of the number of stores. Construction work of the facility will start in October 2016 and it scheduled to open in fall 2017.

In conjunction with the Fifth-Stage Expansion Plan, a large-scale refurbishment will also be carried out, renovating or replacing existing facilities. About 15 years has passed since the first-stage facilities opened, so there will be a remodeling of the environment design, including wall designs and changes of artistic objects on display. To improve convenience and ease of movement in the mall, the number of escalators and elevators will be increased or shifted. In addition, a prayer room will also be built within the fifth-stage extension for those who need to have somewhere to pray.

The Fifth-Stage Expansion Plan and large-scale refurbishment will aim to attract sophisticated luxury and international brands in addition to enhancing stores so that they cater to diverse needs for dining, fashion, lifestyle sundries and more. Large-scale store replacement will occur in two stages in spring and fall 2017 as the facility aims to become even more enjoyable for its attractive shopping.

Mitsui Outlet Park Jazz Dream NAGASHIMA has been positioned to be part of the Nagashima Resort. This name refers to one of the Tokai area’s leading leisure zones, assembling tourist and customer-attracting facilities, with a vicinity that include the comprehensive leisure land operated by Nagashima Resort Co., Ltd., which houses Nagashima Spaland theme park, the Yuami no Shima hot spring facility, Nabana no Sato flower and dining theme park, and Hotel Hanamizuki, a luxury hot spring ryokan inn. “Japaaaan,” Japan’s first and one of the world’s biggest large-scale water attractions, newly opened inside the Jumbo Seawater Pool in July 2016, and the 4D spin-coaster “Arashi” is due to be installed in the theme park in spring 2017. The Fifth-Stage Expansion Plan will make the entire Nagashima Resort area even more attractive.
