Muji reveals plans for a new minimalist hotel in Tokyo

A hotel in Tokyo is the next big thing to come from Japanese homewares store, Muji.

Similar to IKEA, Muji sells simple and reasonably-priced birch wood storage solutions, as well as linen, office accessories, crockery, electronics, and minimalist-style furniture.

In store, you’ll also find fashion basics, stationary, skincare, sneakers, and fragrances.

Muji is all about adopting a minimalist and simple way of life - a philosophy they call ‘No Brand Quality Goods’.

As you can imagine, everything in store is very paired back, and totally free from brand marks.

Located in Tokyo’s shopping district Ginza, the new Muji hotel is due to open in September 2019. Across its 13 floors will be a new five-story global flagship – becoming its largest location to date. The hotel will be housed on the upper floors.  

On Instagram, Muji confiremd that the hotel's design concept and interiors will be designed in-house by the company, so we can expect hotel suites will be decked out in Muji product. 



Located on the face of Namiki street (long-time famous street for high-end brands) and nearby Ginza Marronnier street (one of the most popular shopping destinations in Ginza), the Yomiuri Shimbun will add another attraction to the area together with their existing MARRONNIER GATE GINZA. The building under construction is ten floors above ground and three floors below. Stores will be located from the first basement to sixth floor and a hotel from sixth to tenth floor. The plan includes Ryohin Keikaku's MUJI global flagship store and the first MUJI HOTEL (tentative) in Japan. Regarding MUJI HOTEL (tentative), Ryohin Keikaku will provide the total concept and interior design including the supply of furniture and amenity goods, while the rest of the designing and operation will be done by UDS.? #muji #ginza

As part of its super sumplified approach, Muji recently released a series of flat-pack homes.
