The store name was changed from "Ginza Matsuzaki Senmochi" to "MATSUZAKI SHOTEN", and the official site for the new normal era was opened at the same time.
Matsuzaki Shoten Co., Ltd. will open MATSUZAKI SHOTEN in Ginza 4-chome on Wednesday, July 21, 2021. The main store was moved from Ginza 5-chome to 4-chome, and a new store with an office was opened with an eat-in space on the theme of rebuilding rice crackers and regional exchanges. We will change the store name from "Ginza Matsuzaki Senbei" to "MATSUZAKI SHOTEN" to create new entertainment centered on Senbei.
◆ About Matsuzaki Shoten Co., Ltd. A long-established rice cracker shop founded in Shibao Aizaka in the first year of culture (1804). In the first year of Keio (1865), the store was moved to Ginza, and it has been more than 200 years since spring and autumn. The carefully selected Kawara Sembei, which is made with plenty of eggs and baked with all your heart, is a signboard product that has been loved over time.
◆ Background of the relocation of the head office Due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, it was judged that it would be difficult to maintain the company with the same business content as before. Therefore, we decided to move to a new store with a large space in order to consolidate the products we have created so far and strengthen our brand power. In addition, we have been united with the people of the city to overcome the corona disaster, including the Ginza Tamatebako ( http://gintama.tokyo), and have made various efforts. I realized once again the need for a place where people can gather and discuss the better future of the city. At the new store, we will create opportunities for people to connect and create new value, and will contribute to the development of the city as a third place in Ginza.
◆ About the new MATSUZAKI SHOTEN store Eat-in space has been newly established, mainly for product sales. In 1964, we remade and revived the memorable table used in the Matsuzaki Building, which was established in the year of the Tokyo Olympics. At the entrance of the store, neon lights that stimulate playfulness are installed to create a unique and unique atmosphere that fuses history and modernity.
◆ Change the theme color to purple (fuji color) Red (dark red), which is the brand color, and blue (indigo), which is the main color of the Shoin Shrine front store with the theme of "community-based / return to origin", are interwoven. The purple color (Fuji color) has been changed to the concept color of the new store. We will integrate what we have been working on and aim for further development as a brand that has tradition and innovation.
◆ Introduction of new products Based on the manufacturing knowledge we have cultivated so far, we develop products that match the times. New products using red bean paste from "Ginza Kuya Sorairo" will also be released.

◆ Comment by Sohei Matsuzaki, Representative Director
How do you keep the store going while customers are not returning to Ginza due to the corona disaster? From there, this project started. The Ginza Tamatebako, which started with the desire to connect with the people of the city and take some action, and the Shoin Shrine-mae store, which was able to continue to be supported by the people of the city even under these circumstances.
And the charm of Kawara Sembei that customers order even when there are few people. It is in this age that it is necessary and required to be highlighted. All the staff have been working on product development and store design in order to create a truly enjoyable store that concentrates only the important parts. Starting from this place, all employees will work together to take on new challenges that go beyond the boundaries of rice crackers.
Thank you for your cooperation in MATSUZAKI SHOTEN.
