Shinjuku shopping mall and Lolita mecca MaruiYoung/MaruiOne is closing down today, as well as other Shinjuku Marui locations, and will reopen February 27, while MaruiCity-2 will reopen on February 20. Update: Please note Marui City 2 has been renamed "Marui One" for its new opening, with the old, different Marui One now called Marui Curren.
