Surpassing the giant Muji flagship store and hotel that opened in Ginza back in 2018, Tokyo’s latest Muji outlet is the largest in the entire Kanto region. Located in Ariake between Toyosu and Odaiba on Tokyo Bay, this mega Muji is part of Ariake Garden, the massive shopping and entertainment complex that opened this past June.
Alongside the usual Muji offerings of minimalist homewares, clothing and stationery, the Ariake branch features a café, bakery, juice bar and grocery store selling fresh fruits and veggies. Plus, there's a custom tea blending station similar to the one at Muji Ginza.
On a more sustainable note, there's a bulk food section where you can buy items such as nuts, dried fruit and coffee by weight, along with dishwashing soap and detergent by volume. There are plenty of products exclusive to Muji Ariake, too, including furniture, plants and stylish items from Muji's interior brand Idée. There's even an embroidery workshop for you to get personalised T-shirts and bags and a same-day hemming service for pants.
If you’ve ever wished your apartment could look more like a Muji display, try the store’s in-home cleaning and organising services (as shown in the video above). Something like having Marie Kondo come into your home to do an organisational revamp, the Muji team will help maximise your space.
For those thinking bigger than just new furniture, consultation services on home building and office renovations are also available, so you can plan a partial or full-scale renovation with the Muji lifestyle in mind. You can even custom-design your own furniture and rugs.
The new store is also working with the local Koto city government to start a recycling programme for old clothes and other unwanted household items. The store plans to host food drive initiatives and the regular Connected City markets, where local food and speciality products are sold.
The store officially opened to the public on December 3. For more store details, visit the official website.
