Ginza Six complex has glitzy ceremony

Jiji Press TOKYO (Jiji Press) — A ceremony was held on Monday evening at Ginza Six, the largest commercial complex in Tokyo’s posh Ginza district, ahead of its opening to the public on Thursday.

A total of 241 shops, including luxury brand flagship stores, will open in the complex developed mainly by J. Front Retailing Co., which operates Daimaru and Matsuzakaya department stores.

Built on the former site of a Matsuzakaya store, Ginza Six has 13 floors above ground and six below.

The first-floor area includes space where tourist buses stop. One basement level features a theater for the Japanese traditional performing art of Noh.

The seventh floor and above are for business offices.

The ceremony was attended by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike and J. Front Retailing President Ryoichi Yamamoto.

Ginza Six “will sell good products from across Japan to the world,” Abe said. “It will spark regional revitalization.”Speech
