  • Wako Co., Ltd. (株式会社和光 Kabushiki-gaisha Wakō) is a department store retailer in Japan, whose best known store (commonly known as the Ginza Wako) is at the heart of the Ginza shopping district in Tokyo. This store is famous for its watches, jewellery, chocolate, porcelain, dishware, and handbags, as well as upscale foreign goods. There is an art gallery, called Wako Hall, on the sixth floor. Wako was founded in 1881 by Kintarō Hattori as a watch and jewelry shop called K. Hattori (now Seiko Holdings Corporation) in Ginza. In 1947, the retail division split off as Wako Co., Ltd. From 1894 to 1921, the Hattori Clock Tower stood on the site that Wako occupies today. In 1921, the Hattori Clock Tower was demolished to rebuild a new one. The reconstruction was delayed due to the Great Kantō earthquake of September 1, 1923. The new tower was completed in 1932 as the K. Hattori Building. In homage to its predecessor, the new store was also fitted with a clock. Its 1932 Neo-Renaissance style building, designed by Jin Watanabe, with its curved granite façade, is the central landmark for the district and one of the few buildings in the area left standing after World War II. The building functioned as the Tokyo PX store during the Allied Occupation of Japan from 1945 to 1952. The clock tower plays the famous Westminster Chimes. Wako has branches in Haneda Airport, Shinsaibashi, and some luxury hotels in Japan. * Ginza Wako at night * The Wako store in Ginza

Das Unternehmen wurde 1881 durch Kintarō Hattori als Hattori Tokeiten (服部時計店, „Uhrengeschäft Hattori“; heute Seikō Holdings) gegründet. Wakōs größtes Depāto (japanisches Kaufhaus) liegt im Stadtteil Ginza von Chūō, einem Einkaufsbezirk in Tokio. Es ist berühmt wegen seiner Luxusgüter, unter anderem Schmuck, Porzellan und Handtaschen, die dort verkauft werden. Es gibt im sechsten Stock eine Kunstgalerie, genannt Wakō Hall (和光ホール). Von 1894 bis 1921 stand der Hattori-Glockenturm auf der Stelle, an der heute das Kaufhaus steht. 1921 wurde der Hattori-Glockenturm abgerissen, um einen neuen zu bauen. Die Rekonstruktion verzögerte sich wegen des Großen Kanto-Erdbebens vom 1. September 1923. Der neue Turm wurde 1932 vollendet. 1947 entstand durch die Ausgründung des Einzelhandelsgeschäfts die heutige K.K. Wakō. Wakō besitzt auch Filialen am Flughafen Tokio-Haneda in Shinsaibashi und einige Luxushotels in Japan.
