ルミネ (LUMINE)

Shibuya, Ikebukuro and Yuraku-cho etc…Each Lumine
 location is actually attached to their respective stations. 
Upon arriving from the train, your shopping can begin 
immediately! Just like Japan to make shopping even more 
convenient! Lumine comes from the French word “luminarie”
 , meaning, “light” and, fusing this with the English word 
“illumination” we see the birth of the name, “LUMINE”. 
Sounds right...right? From the South exit of Shinjuku 
Station, there are two Lumine Shops, 1 and 2. They 
are both connected in Shinjuku via the East exit including
 the “LUMINE EST Shinjuku store”. March 25th will
