Isetan Kuala Lumpur Celebrates 25 Years Anniversary in Malaysia

In true Japanese fashion, ISETAN Kuala Lumpur is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a host of festivities and initiatives for customers, as well as to give back to the community.
The initiatives include Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaigns in partnership with HOPE worldwide Malaysia in support of underprivileged children in Malaysia.

In a recent event to mark the special occasion, guests and members of the media and bloggers were treated to Wadaiko Syo, a traditional Japanese drum performance, followed by a birthday cake-cutting ceremony with management and staff of ISETAN Kuala Lumpur.

Drawing inspiration from the Japanese traditional wishing doll, Daruma by Isetan features a collection of five specially designed coin canisters. Symbolising perseverance, these cultural good luck charms encourage goal-setting and the achievement of personal aspirations.
