Through the theme of "connection" WACCA "connects" people, and as that circle of "connectedness" grows, we strive to be a facility that generates new values and appeal. In Higashi-Ikebukuro, "Striving to continue 'connectedness' as a building that will be loved by people 100 years from now." Everything started from this idea.
The appearance of the exterior of the building uses leaves as a motif, with an organic design using "Growth together with all connected people" as its image. The interior of the facility is arranged to be comfortable for anybody to walk around with its universal design.
At WACCA, experiences that make people want to come visit, experiences where people can gain hints about how to best live their lives, and more can be had through various programs that are prepared to welcome in customers. With a charm you will not find anywhere else, we are thrilled when we are able to "connect" with customers as they share in these values.
Cherishing the connections and history that WACCA has with Higashi-Ikebukuro, I promise to make it grow with the town, so that it will be loved by its customers and the town itself, establishing itself as a sustainable place of commerce. WACCA looks forward to continuing to serve all of you in the future.

At lunchtime at our restaurants you can enjoy a wide selection of foods simply prepared using fresh ingredients from traceable sources. In the evening we regularly hold events where you can learn about food and spark your curiosity in our kitchen space.
At home the "kitchen" has traditionally been a place where a mother can ensure the health and growth of her family, using her knowledge and flavoring techniques to prepare a meal for the family that will spark conversation and create a warm environment. For those of you living in the city, you can relax in our "daidokoro" (kitchen), and we have imbued this idea into it by naming it "another daidokoro."
