A collaboration between TPEDOIT and Eslite Spectrum Nihonbashi, the “Long Time No See – Thinking of Taipei” Exhibition is being held on the second floor of the store through December 10. The space features merchandise and souvenirs with strong ties to “Taipei”, including those by local businesses such as Taiwan Ten Café, hanamikoji, Shixi, Chacaba, KILIN Shoe Repair, no.30, Essentia Traditional Oriental Medicine Clinic, and more.
 
In addition to the exhibition, TPEDOIT will be holding a series of activities in the month of October at Eslite Spectrum Nihonbashi, including: Tourism Ambassador One-day Store Manager Event, livestreaming of new product unveiling, and an online tour seminar.
