Tokyo Edition Ginza

EDITION Officially Opens its Second Hotel in Tokyo

On a tree-lined street in the heart of the trendy Ginza district, a new Tokyo icon has officially opened its doors on March 14, 2024 after soft opening in December 2023. The Tokyo EDITION Ginza,  a striking, cubic building merges the EDITION brand’s edgy New York sensibilities with the refinement and tranquility of Japan.

The launch follows three years after EDITION’s first foray into Japan with The Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon.  Whereas Toranomon is a tall and gleaming outpost, set among Tokyo’s skyscrapers and office towers, the Ginza property is moody and minimalist.

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.

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.

Features of each guestroom include signature EDITION faux-fur throws in white. 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.

Tucked away in a quiet corner, the hotel gym offers a welcoming space for fitness enthusiasts, offering a modest selection of Technogym equipment.

A signature EDITION venue, Lobby Bar sits at the nexus of the hotel and serves as a sophisticated retreat for guests from early mornings to late nights. Taking pride of place in the lobby is another EDITION hallmark: a sculptural, head-turning staircase cast from white metal. It leads up to Punch Room, the inaugural Japanese outpost of EDITION’s innovative punch-focused bar concept. During the daytime, it’s the setting for the hotel’s Punch Room Afternoon Tea.

One floor up, The Roof delivers a green retreat from the street-level bustle. Hemmed by lush vertical fern gardens and olive trees, this unique rooftop oasis opens to intimate plant-fringed seating nooks and long communal tables for private gatherings of all sizes. As Ginza’s first natural wine bar, The Roof fuels social gatherings with biodynamic champagnes, rare orange wines and fizzy and bottled cocktails incorporating wines and fruit brandy from local wineries and distilleries.

EDITION’s first hotel in Southeast Asia is in Singapore which officially opened its doors in February 2024.  The 190-room property is located in the heart of the downtown Orchard district. There are also two EDITION hotels in China which are in Sanya on Hainan Island (501 rooms +11 villas) and in Shanghai (145 rooms). A new EDITION is being planned for Dali, also in China.
