Just 3 years after opening its first EDITION in Tokyo, Marriott has opened another property in the heart of Ginza.
There is much to go over, so let’s dive right in!
Tokyo Edition Has 80+ Rooms and Suites
The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza features 86 rooms, including 10 suites, across 14 floors. Guests will have access to a gym, several restaurants and bars, a rooftop, and more. The hotel also has a 13th-floor penthouse suite with an open-plan living room, dining area, and pantry kitchen that can be used for stays or events.
The hotel was created as a partnership between Marriott and Ian Schrager (of PUBLIC Hotel fame) and designed by the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.
This is Marriott’s second EDITION hotel in Tokyo. The first one, The Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon, opened in October 2020.
“Ginza is a district where the cutting edge of the world and traditional Japanese culture are interwoven,” said architect Kengo Kuma.
“It’s an area where various city functions overlap and are woven together,” Kuma continued. “Inspired by the concept of “weaving,” we have designed The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza in this human-scale and walkable city as a new landmark weaving Ginza together and connecting it to the world.”
Booking the Tokyo EDITION, Ginza, With Marriott Bonvoy Points
The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza opened in preview on December 12, 2023, but will fully open in early 2024. Like other Marriott properties, the EDITION Ginza participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program, which means you can earn and redeem points at the hotel.
As an EDITION property, one of Marriott’s most exclusive, you can expect to shell out a pretty penny for a stay — the lowest cash rates start at a whopping $800 per night for dates this spring. However, if you have Marriott Bonvoy points in your account, this is the time to use them, as award rates start at just 75,000 points per night.
Even if you aren’t a loyalist, earning Marriott Bonvoy points is extremely easy. You can transfer American Express Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards points to the Marriott at a 1:1 ratio. Amex and Chase also sometimes offer limited-time transfer bonuses, giving you more points for a redemption.Hot Tip:

Tokyo is one of the world’s most traveled-to destinations, so opening an EDITION in the heart of the city makes a ton of sense. Given the EDITION brand’s reputation for luxury, finding award rates under 100,000 points per night is a pleasant surprise, considering how costly cash rates are. If you’re visiting Tokyo soon, The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza should be at the top of your list!
