The Japanese home retail powerhouse is now expanding its services to the world of hotel accommodation.

Muji meaning “no-brand” or “anti label” screams simplicity itself. With an imaginable four-block letter word and an uncomplicated font, it’s minimalism has already touched the hospitality sector opening three hotels globally: Shenzhen, Beijing, and most recently Tokyo.

Ginza, Tokyo’s most popular shopping with its vibrant shopping area is where the latest Muji hotel is placed. So what makes it special?

With a strong vision of their brand, Muji hotel doesn’t just offer maximized minimalism but also sustainability. With much of its interior produced from recycled materials such as ship debris and even paving stones from over a century ago, it offers not only a cozy stay but cares about the environment.

Described as “anti gorgeous” and “anti cheap” guests can choose from nine suite types (A-I), spanning twin spaces with twin or bunk beds, a semi-double, and large open-plan rooms complete with reading nooks and a wooden bathtub.

“The hotel has been designed to reflect our ‘anti-gorgeous, anti-cheap’ concept,”. “The goal is to offer a great night’s sleep at the right price, to provide a space that supports both the body and the soul while away from home, and to connect travelers to local communities.” -Muji spokeswoman.

Muji’s mission is to provide customers with simple and elegant lifestyles at reasonable prices. Here are the different options that can be enjoyed in a Muji hotel room:

The new Ginza hotel has 79 rooms ranging in size from quite large to compact: The largest floorplan available, the Type I room, measures 52 square meters (around 560 square feet), while the smallest, the Type A room, measures just 14 or 15 square meters (around 150 square feet). With the exception of the Type A room, though, all nine of the room types can house one to two people. (Type A rooms are meant for only one.) The kind of bed varies by room type, as well; some of them have single beds, while others have double beds, and still, others come equipped with bunk beds.

“The Muji Hotel can offer customers an opportunity to become more acquainted with Muji goods and services through experience,” the spokeswoman adds. “And we use their feedback to help develop new products.”

Despite the differences between the types of rooms, though, the hotel notes that “great care has been taken to ensure that the room will restore travelers in body and spirit alike.” The mattresses on the beds were chosen based on sleep and posture research; the towels are described as “gentle to the touch”, and the lighting is “designed to guide guests into a natural slumber.” All in all, the rooms are meant to create calming, comfortable atmospheres that will help you unwind after a long day of work or play.
