Japan (Tohoku University) Fujisaki Department Store to Sell Tohoku University Merchandise Online

Tohoku University is celebrating its 115th anniversary this year and to commemorate the milestone, the university has collaborated with Fujisaki Department Store to produce a number of official premium merchandise.

The university-branded goods, which include neckties and scarves, towels and handkerchiefs, used to be sold only at Fujisaki Department Store in downtown Sendai City.

But in response to high demand, Fujisaki is making the goods available nation-wide via its online shopping site from November 25.

This is the first time in Japan that official university goods can be purchased via a department store e-commerce site.

A portion of the proceeds from all official goods sold will go towards the Tohoku University Fund, which was started in 2008 to support the university’s education and research activities, as well as student welfare.
