The "Bandai Namco Cross Store" offers a unique entertainment experience where various companies within the Bandai Namco Group come together to provide real-life touchpoints for characters, products, events, dining, and more. Visitors can "see," "touch," and "experience" a wide range of content, fostering new entertainment experiences through cross-interactions between these elements at the facility.

Located on the 4th floor of Sakura Hall within AEON Mall KYOTO, the following stores operate under the umbrella of "Bandai Namco Cross Store Kyoto": "namco," "Gashapon no Depart" (Gashapon Department Store), and official shops like "Ichiban Kuji Official Shop," "Gashapon Bandai Official Shop," and "ONE PIECE Card Game Official Shop." New additions include the official shops "TAMASHII NATIONS in Cross Store Entry Models" and "BANDAI CANDY OFFICIAL SHOP." The "TAMASHII NATIONS in Cross Store Entry Models" shop, specializing in completed figures, marks its first appearance in the Kansai region. The "BANDAI CANDY OFFICIAL SHOP" offers a wide selection of affordable entertainment and high-quality collectible candies.

As the fifth facility in Japan to operate under the "Bandai Namco Cross Store" banner since its inception in July 2022, and the second in the Kansai region following Osaka Umeda, "Bandai Namco Cross Store Kyoto" is the largest (as of October 2023) entertainment facility in Kyoto.

※1 As of October 2023, according to the company's research.
