The first MUJI HOTEL in Japan is opening in Ginza on 4th of April
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. MUJI HOTEL GINZA will open together with the global flagship store MUJI GINZA. There will be a reception and the restaurant "WA" on the sixth floor and a total of 79 guest rooms from 7th to 10th floor.
MUJI HOTEL GINZA, same as MUJI HOTEL BEIJING which opened last year in Beijing China, is operated by UDS in planning, interior design and management under the supervision of Ryohin Keikaku (Muji) in terms of total concept and interior design.
The hotel seeks to present and express the MUJI philosophy to the customers. It aims at becoming a base for customers to enjoy a deeper taste of Ginza, a place where the olden meets the modern, and to provide a comfortable environment as if the journey is an extension of the everyday life.
Interior decorations concentrate on natural materials such as wood, stone and soil. The common area applies materials that have the flavor of time, such as flagstone of tramway from 50 years ago and the waste materials from ships.
All the 79 rooms wish to create a sense of comfort as relaxing as home. Mattress are selected on sleep and posture research, towels have a soft feeling of textile and lighting devices induce nature and high-quality sleep. There are 9 types of elongate rooms facing the window, including rooms equipped with Tatami (Japanese straw floor covering), rooms equipped with bunk bed and rooms that can host 3 to 4 customers.
MUJI HOTEL offers the same rate throughout the year, regardless of season and day. The same rate, including tax and service fee, applies to the same room no matter when or by whom the reservation is made.
The room rate is determined by size in principle and the priority is to set up a simple pricing structure for the guests based on anti-gorgeous and anti-cheap concept.
Restaurant: WA visits various places in Japan on a regular basis, discovering the flavors embedded in the local culture and delivering them to the customers, this enables them to enjoy the richness of Japanese culture through food. For example, customers can enjoy the Koshihikari rice from the Hida Takayama area (a famous area for high-quality rice) cooked with Ichi-Gou Hagama (traditional cooking pot for rice), as well as Japanese Sake provided by skillful Sake makers, established or young.
ATELIER MUJI GINZA, which is located on the sixth floor, is the multi-purpose facility of design and culture delivering MUJI's views and ideas for the future. It consists of five spaces: two "Galleries" for exhibitions featuring craftwork and design; a "Salon" where people can talk over delicious coffee or drinks; a "Library" accommodating books related to design and arts as well as rare old books from the past; and a "Lounge" for events and workshops.
