---Grand Opening on March 28
Largest outlet mall in the Tokai District
Tenants officially announced

January 25, 2002
Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd.
Nagashima Kanko Kaihatsu Co., Ltd.

Mitsui Fudosan and Nagashima Kanko Kaihatsu are joint developers of Jazz Dream NAGASHIMA, the largest outlet mall in the Tokai district. The grand opening will officially take place on March 28. The mall will be occupied by a total of 84 tenants. Most of these will be factory outlets, including 12 overseas brands opening their first outlet in Japan and 52 companies opening their first outlet in the Tokai District.

Construction plan and surrounding environment
The mall will be located at the Kisosansen delta. Because of the similarities with the Mississippi delta, the developers have adopted a New Orleans motif and " jazz," often associated with New Orleans, as part of the name and theme. The mall is also adorned with decorations and objets related to the Mardi Gras, one of the world's three best-known carnivals. The mall building is shaped like a steamboat, similar to those plying the Mississippi River. These touches are the result of a plan to create a dream-like environment that is both fun and lively. The mall is located by the main gate of Nagashima Spa Land, one of the most prominent leisure facilities in the Tokai district. Nearby are several tourist attractions, including Hotel Hanamizuki, a high-end hot springs resort, and Nabananosato, a flower and food theme park. With the creation of the outlet mall, the area will become even more well-known as an attractive " leisure zone."

The new mall will have a unique mix of tenants. It will include those in traditional outlet fields, such fashion, accessory (clothing, lifestyle, and variety), sports, and outdoors, but with reinforced appeal. In addition, the mall will have brands targeting middle-aged and married women---the core clientele of nearby Hotel Hanamizuki and Nabananosato---as well as accessory brands for the many age groups of people who visit Nagashima Superland. Another interesting aspect of the mall is that it will also feature shops selling pottery, crockery, pearls, and other objects for which the Tokai district is so famous. By differentiating it from other malls in Japan, we hope to establish Jazz Dream NAGASHIMA as a powerful force in the industry. A summarized list of tenants is shown below.
