Marriott and Ian Schrager to debut Edition brand in Japan in 2020

While Miami Beach Edition is already operating, the two Tokyo Editions will open in 2020.

Marriott International and Ian Schrager have signed two separate agreements with Japanese Marriott owner and franchisee Mori Trust to develop two new hotels in the country's capital. Slated to open in 2020, The Tokyo Edition, Ginza and The Tokyo Edition, Toranomon will mark the debut of Marriott's Edition brand in Japan.

The Tokyo Edition, Ginza will be a newly built 13-story standalone property with 80 guestrooms. Just off Chuo Street, the main shopping street in Ginza, the hotel site is close to Ginza-Itchome Station, Ginza Station and Tokyo Station. It is also near shopping complexes, restaurants and tourist attractions, such as Tokyo Imperial Palace. Construction is expected to start in May 2018, with an opening planned for March 2020.

Meanwhile, the 200-key Tokyo Edition Toranomon will be built as part of a redevelopment of the former Pastoral Building, a mixed-use project of offices, residences and a medical center. In Minato ward, the hotel site is close to Kamiyacho Station and Roppongi-Itchome Station. It is also near Toranomon Station and Tokyo Station as well as government offices, embassies and consulates, office buildings, retail and dining facilities, and cultural sites, such as Akasaka Palace and Meiji Shrine. Site excavation work has started, with the hotel opening planned for 2020.
