Persona 4[edit | edit source]

The Junes Department Store started business about one year before the arrival of the protagonist in Inaba. A shopping mall of sorts, it had everything that can cater to the household in Inaba. This had an effect on the businesses in the Central Shopping District, where most of the shops had closed down, among others the pharmacy and the hobby shop.

Reactions are mixed with the arrival of Junes; most of the older residents blame Junes for the closed shops in the district, going so far as blaming Junes for the erratic weather and even the murders and kidnappings in Inaba. The younger generation, though, is more welcoming to Junes; Nanako Dojima in particular enjoyed singing the Junes jingle and is always looking forward to a visit there.

The Investigation Team at Junes.

Junes is a significant place for the Investigation Team; the food court serves as their "Special Headquarters." Their initial trek to the Midnight Channel takes place in a large screen television in the electronics department, which serves as their gateway into the "other side" from then on. In Persona 4 Golden and Persona 4 The Golden Animation, Rise Kujikawa holds a mini-concert at Junes, although they only know one song: True Story.

Within the story, once Teddie finds his resolve, he leaves the Midnight Channel and begins residing in the human world. To avoid suspicion, Teddie becomes the mascot of Junes, attracting kids to the shopping mall. When he obtains a human form, Teddie works as a retail staff member at Junes. The protagonist may also work at Junes, earning money but at the expense of a week's time.

Persona 4 Golden[edit | edit source]

An event originally starring Kanami Mashita as the star of a concert, alongside a huge sale at Junes, was due to be performed as a celebration of her new position of the honorary chief, but complications which started with Naoto Shirogane’s disappearance led to the event being canceled. Due to the amount of time and resources spent into planning the event, the cancelation could lead to Yosuke's dad being fired for this. Rise Kujikawa offers to stand in for Kanamin at the concert with support from the team for music.

Later, during the next summer vacation, the protagonist arrives to find out that Junes has created a "locally-produced goods" section in partnership with the local shops to help them stay afloat.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth[edit | edit source]

After returning from the alternate Yasogami High School, the Investigation Team gathers at the food court in Junes for a study session. Teddie endlessly bothers the team, and Yu brings his cousin, Nanako along to keep her company.

Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth[edit | edit source]

Junes is where the Investigation Team enters the movie world from. When they enter the TV that supposedly leads to the Midnight Channel, it leads them to a strange dimension with a movie screen initiating a countdown instead, bringing them to the movie world.

Junessic Land, the second movie and the one where the Investigation Team lands, takes its namesake from Junes, and even features a Yosuke-like dinosaur being an outcast.

Music[edit | edit source]

A vocal version of the Junes Theme was written and performed for Persona 4: Dancing All Night. It can be heard here.

A jingle of the Junes Theme's first verse plays in the song, Crane Game in Persona 5 at the Akihabara Gigolo Arcade.
