Up on the 6th floor is ATELIER MUJI GINZA which is home to a bar with a counter made from the wood of a 400-year-old tree. It has a warm and inviting appearance and is a welcoming exmaple of nature in the building.

9. The “Anti-Gorgeous, Anti-Cheap” Hotel

MUJI HOTEL’s concept is “Anti-Gorgeous, Anti-Cheap.” It offers guests a space relaxing enough to enjoy themselves during their travels at a reasonable price. Everything in the hotels rooms is a MUJI design. The building of this branch of the MUJI HOTEL was carried out by UDS who plan, design and manage various popular hotels such as CLASKA along Meguro-dori and Hotel Anteroom in Kyoto.

A characteristic of the rooms is how big they are. The architecture of the rooms have it so the bathroom is hidden behind a wall. And by making the ceilings high it gives them a more spacious feel.

The TYPE G bunk beds are unique to the Ginza branch of the hotel. Rooms also come with books curated by MUJI BOOKS.

The tablets set up in the room allow you to change the lights, air con, close the curtains and other things.

10.Tour Plan

The hotel staff also carry out tours to build a relationship with guests and to make the hotel an important aspect of their trip. The hotel also plans to loan out jogging wear and other things in the future.

 

There are many other wonderful products and services offered by MUJI too that didn’t make it onto this list. Be sure to stop by for a visit if you’re in Tokyo.
