MUJI Will Open a Hotel in Tokyo
The form-meets-function Japanese homewares and apparel shop will debut its first hotel in Ginza in 2019.
Travel in minimal luxury. Don’t worry, that’s a good thing.
MUJI, a go-to paradise of minimal home furnishings, accessories and apparel, is a palace for people who love that no-fuss, no-muss lifestyle.
Now they can take that sleek and basic aesthetic on the road.
The home goods shop owned by Ryohin Keikaku Co. will open a hotel in spring 2019 in Tokyo’s upscale Ginza district, according to the Japan Times. The MUJI Hotel (No.103 3-chome, Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo) will take up a 10-story building, with the top four floors dedicated to the hotel, and the bottom six floors and three basement floors dedicated to MUJI’s new flagship home goods store.
Naturally, the hotel will be furnished with MUJI products.
In addition, the company announced that it will complete another MUJI hotel in Shenzhen, China later this year. That project will have 79 rooms finished with recycled wood and also will be outfitted with MUJI furniture and accessories.
The Japan Times reported that company president and representative director Satoru Matsuzaki said at a news conference that he hopes the hotel will be “a place where customers can thoroughly experience Muji product lineups.”
Perhaps this is the beginning of the golden age of hotel stays that are also major shopping excursions.
