Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. (location: Chuo-ku, Tokyo/CEO: Masanobu Komoda) and Mitsui Fudosan Hotel Management Co., Ltd. (location: Minato-ku, Tokyo/CEO: Mitsuru Adachi) will open the new Millennium Mitsui Garden Hotel Tokyo (5-chome, Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo) on December 17th (Wed). This hotel is a collaboration between Millennium & Copthorne Hotels, which has locations in 24 different countries worldwide, and Japan’s Mitsui Garden Hotels. The new hotel is the first for this Millennium brand in Japan.

Centrally located within the Ginza area, which is well known for its concentration of luxury brands, it will be a step above other luxury hotels in the area. This hotel will provide a Japanese style space to visitors from all walks of life who come to Ginza seeking the ultimate in luxury. The exterior design references weaving, with overlaid structures passing under and over each other, and the interior is a private space laid out in an Asian minimalist style. It also features two special concept rooms: a “Pearl Room” designed with MIKIMOTO COSMETICS GINZA, and a “HAKUZA Gold Leaf Room” designed with HAKUZA NIHONBASHI. Through collaborations with distinguished Japanese brands and facilities well-versed in traditional techniques, the hotel will show the world what Cool Japan is all about.

Perfect Location in the Center of Ginza, Overlooking the Kabukiza Theatre

In Ginza, the streets are lined with the latest luxury brand shops, all competing through their designs. This area is a meeting spot for futuristic and traditional Japanese styles, and is the most vibrant in all of Tokyo. With the perfect location in the center of all this hustle and bustle at the Ginza 4-chome crossing, some of the rooms even have a view of the nearby the Kabukiza Theatre, which represents Japanese culture in Ginza. This is the kind of view you only find in a place like Ginza, where Japanese tradition and the latest in western culture coexist. One of the Millennium Mitsui Garden Hotel Tokyo’s distinct features is easy access to famous department stores, the Kabukiza Theatre, and other nearby areas. The convenience is unbeatable.

The opening of the Millennium Mitsui Garden Hotel Tokyo marks the first entry of the Millennium brand into the Japanese market, as well as the first collaboration between Millennium and Mitsui, and a new level in hotel quality. The building and land for this hotel are owned by the Hong Leong Group, with the Mitsui Fudosan Group renting the property, and handling the business side of the Millennium x Mitsui Garden Hotels cooperative brand venture.

♦ The Exterior Features an Interwoven Design, Symbolizing the Japanese Style of Weaving

The exterior design, the face of the Millennium Mitsui Garden Hotel Tokyo, symbolizes the interweaving of Ginza’s history, present, and future. Mr. Masahide Ishikawa, a Japanese designer who also worked on projects like the Kojun Building and the Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shinmachi Bettei, planned the hotel’s exterior as a modern representation of the “IKI (esprit)” of Edo sophistication in Ginza.

♦ Modern and Innovative Interior Design by Asian Artists

All of the building’s interior, including the guest rooms, were handled by CL3, a Hong Kong based designer working in innovative exterior and interior design projects worldwide. The result is a modern interior with a sense of Edo “IKI (esprit)” sophistication.
The lobby is decorated with art by Mr. Jotaro Saito, and up-and-coming kimono designer. The art features 2 moons and the flowers of changing seasons, which represent “changes and the flow of time” as well as “the entrance of differing cultures and civilizations, and the resulting mixture.”
