Establishing a business presence in Malaysia, a critical part of the Company’s global expansion strategy, represents the initial phase of the Company’s strategic efforts to penetrate the Southeast Asia market and increase the Company’s brand recognition and global footprint.

Yoshitsu plans to open its first retail store under the name, REIWATAKIYA, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by the end of 2022, and to open another 4 stores by the end of 2023, with each of such stores expected to be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The plan represents the first step the Company will be taking to build its business presence in the region. The Company anticipates a broader expansion of its operations into Southeast Asian countries, such as Thailand and Singapore in the future.

Mr. Mei Kanayama, the Principal Executive Officer of Yoshitsu Co., Ltd, commented, “We are pleased to announce our plan to open our stores in Malaysia and excited about the opportunity to serve the local residents with our large variety of Japanese products. We anticipate that our Malaysian operations will enable us to utilize our experience and resources in the Asia Pacific region to seize the opportunities in this fast-growing market. We are determined to provide high-quality Japanese products to the local communities and build the Company’s reputation in the region, as Malaysia is an invaluable market to drive our business forward.”
