MUJI in Ginza, Tokyo, Japan

Your MUJI bucket list wouldn’t be complete without the Japanese brand’s global flagship store—also the largest store in the world—located in Tokyo, which opened in 2019. With 10 floors and a basement level, MUJI Ginza is worth an entire day (or more) of exploration. The MUJI Diner is located on the basement floor while the first to fifth levels are dedicated to their usual lineup of minimalist home finds and apparel—each floor has a distinct theme, so you’ll be surprised when you head up to a new level. The sixth floor houses Atelier MUJI, where art exhibitions are seasonally displayed while all remaining floors on top make up the MUJI Hotel, which is decked out in furniture and interior design that matches the store’s famous form-meets-function philosophy.

MUJI in Kamppi Shopping Center, Helsinki, Finland

Finland’s first MUJI store, which opened in November 2019 in the country’s capital city, takes up the entire fourth floor of the Kamppi Shopping Center, spanning 3,600 square meters—the biggest in all of Europe. The expansive space feels like a mall all on its own with no obvious entrances and exits in sight. The store was modeled after the lifestyle of the Finnish people, many of whom are closely surrounded by nature. It boasts a "warm environment," notes the MUJI website, with lots of wooden fixtures and pillars "to create a connection between the spaces," and inspired by the small houses that can often be seen in the suburbs of Helsinki. It also has a mini supermarket inside.

MUJI in ILLUM Department Store, Copenhagen, Denmark

Denmark is a popular tourist destination for many reasons, but its modern functionalist architectural style, which highlights natural light and comfortable interiors, is definitely high on the list. Fittingly, MUJI’s flagship store in the country, located in central Copenhagen, sports the pristine design from end to end and the relaxing interiors perfectly complement the Japanese brand’s style philosophy. The store is partially made from reclaimed wood sourced from old buildings while many of the walls are made from recycled Eco plaster, following the Danish architectural movement’s focus on sustainable construction and energy systems.
