EDITION Launches Its Second Act in Tokyo: The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza

Located in the heart of Ginza’s tree-lined avenues, a new symbol of Tokyo’s elegance has been unveiled. Ian Schrager, in collaboration with Kengo Kuma, a famed Japanese architect, introduces The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza. Following the success of The Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon, this new venture is poised to become the pulsating heart of Tokyo’s most illustrious district.

A Harmonious Blend of Tradition and Innovation

Schrager, in partnership with Marriott International, has masterfully crafted a unique experience that merges the deep-rooted traditions of Japanese culture with EDITION’s trailblazing ethos. The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza is a testament to this vision, offering a sanctuary of luxury in an uncharted corner of the city. It boasts an array of avant-garde bars, including Japan’s first punch-focused cocktail bar, Ginza’s inaugural natural wine bar, and 86 expansive rooms and suites, all housed within a 14-story boutique hotel.

The Intersection of Old and New

Unlike its sister property in Toranomon, which floats above the cityscape, The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza offers a harmonious blend of past and present. Ginza’s transformation from an Edo-era district to a contemporary hub of fashion, art, and gastronomy is a story told through its streets. Here, Michelin-starred restaurants and iconic cocktail bars coexist with historic yakitori joints and timeless kabuki theatres.

Kengo Kuma’s Vision

Kengo Kuma describes Ginza as a tapestry where tradition and modernity intertwine. His design for The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza reflects this philosophy, presenting the hotel as a new landmark that weaves together the district’s multifaceted character.
