or "ichi-maru-kyu"
the center of young womens fashion in tokyo. a huge department store that is really just a collection of small shops. 109 is actually a play on words. 10 in japanese is pronounced "to" and nine is "kyu". together it spells Tokyu, the name of the parent company. Japanese use these number words a lot as there are three ways to say most numbers. 3-9 (san, kyu) means thank you!
