A traditional Japanese “noh” theatre will be also be contained within the complex, while five floors will be dedicated to office space.
To accommodate tourist groups, a terminal for sightseeing buses has been incorporated into the premises and a customer service counter on the ground floor will provide currency exchange services.
Ginza Six sits on the site of the former Matsuzakaya department store, which was one of Ginza’s most well-known landmarks.
