Three years after EDITION’s first foray into Japan with the opening of The Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon, comes the arrival of the second act in the Japanese capital: The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza.

Created by Ian Schrager as a result of a partnership between Ian Schrager and Marriott International, Schrager has orchestrated a delicate balance between the rich traditions of Japanese culture and the avant-garde desire of EDITION to defy conventions and forge a groundbreaking, unprecedented offering. The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza extends the brand’s distinct blend of energy and sophistication to a corner of the city where few luxury hotels have ventured before.

With a Japanese-tinged modern brasserie, a multitude of innovative bar concepts including Japan’s only punch-focused cocktail bar and Ginza’s first natural wine bar, and 86 exceptionally spacious rooms and suites — the 14-storey boutique hotel brings a new generation of luxury into the heart of one of Tokyo’s most desirable destinations.

Where EDITION’s Toranomon outpost, with a lobby floating more than 140 m above street level, immerses its guests into the Tokyo of gleaming skyscrapers and neon-glowing streets, guests of The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza will find a low-slung blend of old and new unfurling from their lobby’s doorstep.

Over the past century, Ginza’s Edo-era city grid has been polished into one of Tokyo’s most forward-thinking shopping and entertainment districts. Along Chuo-dori, Tokyo’s legendary commercial avenue, flagship stores of global fashion houses occupy architectural marvels designed by some of Japan’s greatest modern architects, while shopping complexes such as Ginza Six and Tokyu Plaza bring in a multitude of art galleries, department stores and design boutiques. The district also sits at the nucleus of Tokyo’s dining scene.

With 34 out of the city’s 183 Michelin-starred restaurants listing a Ginza postcode, it has the highest concentration of Michelin-listed restaurants in Japan. Some of the city’s most renowned cocktail bars also call Ginza home.

The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza is spread over 14 floors in a tower clad in vertical gardens and a latticed facade woven from metal. Its 86 guestrooms range from 10 spacious suites with separate living areas to entry-level rooms whose minimum of 41 sqm of floor space make them the largest standard rooms in the district.

The Penthouse Suite, the hotel’s crown jewel on the 13th floor, unfolds into an open-plan living room, dining area, and a fully equipped pantry kitchen to cater to comfortable long-stays and intimate social gatherings.

With its striking vestibule entrance and soaring floor-to-ceiling corner windows, the double-height, street-level lobby has not only turned the hotel into a defining feature of Ginza’s new streetscape, it has also established it as a rendezvous for the district’s tastemakers and creative class. A signature EDITION venue, Lobby Bar sits at the nexus of the hotel and serves as a sophisticated retreat for both in-house guests and clued-in locals from early mornings to late nights.

The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza is now open in preview.
