The Opening Day for MUJI Global Flagship Store and MUJI HOTEL in Ginza, JapanMUJI will relocate to Ginza

Ryohin Keikaku Co., Ltd. (Tokyo; Satoru Matsuzaki, President & Representative Director) has announced its plan to open the first MUJI HOTEL, a global flagship store and MUJI Diner in Ginza, Japan on 4 April 2019. MUJI Yurakucho global flagship store, which has welcomed numerous customers from all over the world since 2001, will close on 2 December 2018.

MUJI GINZA, a global flagship store focused on food

MUJI wants to connect the relationships between people and people, people and society, and people and nature through its goods and services. Among the three most basic of human needs (clothing, food, and housing), food is perhaps the most critical, essential part of life. City dwellers, however, have become far removed from the farms, ranches and fisheries, where the food is actually produced, and have come to consume food as nothing more than mere merchandise. Many of them know neither the producers, the land nor the sea that grew the food. The new global flagship store will dedicate more goods and services to food. We hope it helps customers think about the producers and production areas, taking another look at the relationship between food and people. The dedicated food area on the ground floor features vegetables and fruits delivered directly from the farms near Tokyo. The store will sell freshly squeezed juice or desserts made from in-store fruits. There will be a space to eat on site. We plan to sell the mixture of tea leaves (such as green tea, rooibos tea, etc.), spice and fruits by measure.

MUJI Diner, the restaurant which focuses on simple food, will open in the first basement. Salad bar, main dish of fish, meat or wild game in season will be available for both single guest and the group of families and friends.

MUJI HOTEL GINZA and ATELIER MUJI GINZA

The "anti-gorgeous, anti-cheap" MUJI HOTEL offers great sleep at the right price, provides a space supporting both body and soul while away from home, and connects travellers to local communities. Ginza will be the third location following Shenzhen and Beijing. There will be a reception on the sixth floor and total 79 guest rooms in 7th to 10th floor.

ATELIER MUJI GINZA, the multi-purpose facility of design and culture, will also open on the sixth floor. It consists of: 2 galleries for the exhibitions featuring craftwork and design; a salon where people can talk over coffee or drinks; a library accommodating books related to design and arts; and a lounge for events and workshops. MUJI's views and ideas for the future will be provided from there.

MUJI POP-UP STORE Marronnier Gate Ginza (tentative)

During the three-months period from 12 December 2018, a pop-up store will open on the ground floor of Marronnier Gate Ginza 2 (a building located between the current and the new global flagship stores). It will offer the items which were selected from our 7,000 items as crucial for lifestyle basics. The new services in Ginza store will also be promoted. Further information will be released in our website https://shop.muji.com/jp/ginza/ (Japanese only) or MUJI passport app.

What is MUJI HOTEL?

The MUJI HOTEL has been designed to reflect an anti-gorgeous, anti-cheap concept. The goal is to offer great sleep at the right price, provide a space supporting both body and soul while away from home, and connect travellers to local communities. Travel has become part of our daily lives. It has evolved from the extraordinary to the ordinary, from something in which we participate to something we create. MUJI HOTEL provides an answer to this shift in demand. Cooperating with MUJI stores, MUJI HOTEL seeks to provide a physical experience of the MUJI philosophy through the texture of the towels, the placement of outlets and light switches, menu and venue of the restaurant, and more.

The Ginza location will be the third MUJI HOTEL following the Shenzhen location (opened on 18 January 2018) and in Beijing location (opened on 30 June 2018).
