MUJI Hotel Ginza

Following the success of its Shenzhen and Beijing hotel branches, MUJI’s first Japanese site will open in the upmarket Ginza district of Tokyo this month. Described as ‘anti-gorgeous, anti-cheap’, MUJI Hotel will strive to offer its guests ‘great sleep at the right price’. At the same time, MUJI aims to help visitors ‘enjoy a deeper taste of Ginza’.

Japanese Minimalism

The 79-room hotel features nine different suite types. These range from twin spaces with family bunk beds, to larger open-plan rooms complete with reading nook and a wooden bathtub.


Aesthetics-wise, the interiors embody the best of Japanese minimalism. Think lots of natural wood and stone textures, earthy neutral hues and a clutter-free approach to accessories. The overall look is clean, calm and soothing to the eye — perfect for easing you into the relaxed vacation spirit.

Rest and Recover

To ensure a good night’s rest, MUJI have selected scientifically approved mattresses based on sleep and posture research. Meanwhile, clever lighting takes its cue from nature in order to create the optimum conditions for slumber.

“All 79 rooms make elaborate efforts to support both the body and soul while away from home. We wish to create a sense of comfort [that is] as relaxing as home.”

Make Do and Mend

In addition to beautiful design, MUJI has made a point to prioritize sustainability through the use of recycled materials. From nautical waste materials to bricks carved from the flagstones of a 50 year old tramway, re-purposed components take pride of place as statement design features.
