Japanese lifestyle brand MUJI is renowned for their practical yet stylish designs of homeware, stationery, vacuum-packed t-shirts, and other assorted oddments at reasonable prices. It looks like they’re stepping into the hospitality business next with the announcement of Hotel MUJI.
The first two MUJI Hotels will open in China in 2018, while the third will be in Tokyo’s popular shopping district, Ginza, which is slated for completion in 2019.
While details are still vague, Business Insider Japan reported that the Shenzhen hotel in China will include 79 rooms and feature recycled wood interiors.
The hotels will reflect an anti-gorgeous, anti-cheap concept. MUJI’s goal is to provide a space to support both body and mind while away from home, at the right price, and to connect travellers to the local people and place.

The Tokyo hotel will occupy the five floors above MUJI’s upcoming flagship store in Ginza, a strategic area dominated by department stores, luxury boutiques, and high-end restaurants.
Well, here’s your excuse to book a flight for your year-end vacation.
