“A Re-interpretation of Japanese Culture”

“GINZA TSUTAYA BOOKS is a place where Japanese culture and art intersect. We proposed a well-honed sense of beauty, full of cultural energy and life, within the lifestyle concept of living together with art”. Aiming to make it the world's leading art bookstore, about 60,000 related books have been gathered together. Aisles configured in a grid design that is an exact scale-down of Ginza, form the basis of the overall plan. Exhibitions and events can be held in the 6-meter high tower space that is flooded with natural light and artworks are displayed inside the gallery and bookshelves. Even in the café, art can be appreciated. We wish this space to become an icon of Ginza, projecting both its traditions and modernity.
