In early July, Muji unveiled its plans to open its first hotels in Tokyo’s Ginza district and the Chinese city of Shenzhen.
Recently, The Nikkei interviewed Muji's President Satoru Matsuzaki about the company's overseas strategies.
“For us to be able to propose a better lifestyle requires that we be in the hotel- and travel-related business. We will not operate the hotels ourselves, however. We'll team with companies that understand Muji's values. Room rates vary between locations. Hotels will be opened in Beijing and Shenzhen. In spring 2019, the first Japanese hotel will open in Tokyo's Ginza district.”
