GINZA SIX, a Trend Setter 241 stores are gathered in the largest retail facility (approx. 47,000m2) in the Ginza area. 121 stores – more than half of the total number of stores – are flagship stores. Because Ginza draws so much attention on the global stage, these flagship stores serve as places where brands can define who they are, and display the newest products and richest product lineups, and offer the best services. Facing Chuo-dori avenue, which is a symbol of Ginza, six world-class luxury brands open maisonette shops with unique facades that are designed in the image of “noren” – traditional Japanese eaves and shop curtains associated with welcoming people – to become the new faces of Ginza. Collaboration with world famous artists and creative professionals is also one of the challenges of GINZA SIX. The central atrium, a symbol of GINZA SIX, is decorated with artwork installations exclusively created for GINZA SIX by Yayoi Kusama, the world-famous avant-garde artist. GINZA SIX will take over the legacy and history of Ginza as a symbol of Ginza, a world-famous destination. Furthermore, we promise to offer the exclusive and highest level of products and services and unique experiences that can only be had here at GINZA SIX. Please look forward to the grand opening of GINZA SIX on April 20, 2017.
