Apple stores are iconic throughout the world for the level of design that goes into their construction. In fact, it’s almost like they’re Apple products themselves.

Today Apple posted a video to its YouTube channel showcasing the preparation for its new store in the Omotesando area of Tokyo, Japan. With giant glass panes stretching stories-high, it’s a big store in a country that Apple is doing very well in right now.

Vines stretch across the top and side of the store to help with climate control. Lisa Jackson, Apple’s new head of “Environmental Initiatives,” has appeared in the media lately talking about the company’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint. Jackson has said that one of Apple’s goals to get all of its stores across the world running on 100% renewable energy.

The iPhone is selling very well in the Japanese smartphone market with around 50% market share.

This Omotesando store will be Apple’s ninth retail outlet in Japan. It is scheduled to open on June 13th.

    With the new iPhone 6 & iPad Air coming out I better sell my old iPhone & iPad before the value of it drops. I usually search 12-13 different sites to find the best offer, but I just found this company that compares all the buyback companies in one spot. it’s called RecomHub.

    It’s like Kayak but for Apple Devices that show you all the offers in one spot.
