Tokyo’s Ginza shopping district last month celebrated the opening of Ginza Six. Here is what you need to know about the giant complex.
On 20 April, 2,500 enthusiastic luxury and premium shoppers celebrated the opening of the Ginza Six super-mall in Tokyo. The 19-storey, 505,910 sq ft complex, also known as GSIX, is home to 241 stores, including Céline, Dior, Valentino, Saint Laurent, Belstaff, Paul Smith, Jimmy Choo, Adidas, Fendi and Manolo Blahnik.
To make it easy for international tourists there is a terminal for sightseeing buses within the complex, which also has a currency exchange counter. Among the additional luxury touches are a concierge service, lounge and personal stylists.
The basement houses a Japanese noh theatre. Floors seven to 12 are office space and floor 13 houses restuarants. A rooftop garden with panoramic views of Tokyo tops off the complex.
Ginza Six sits on the former site of the Matsuzakaya department store and took two years to build.
