Once Upon a Design
Dive into the cavernous Ginza Tsutaya Books Atrium, currently open exclusively for sea life and aquatic mammals. Filled to the brim with salty sea water, it has been transformed into the perfect venue for an underwater art exhibition. Dancing sunbeams illuminate from above, casting rippling beams of light over the iconic bookshelves. Schools of Japanese Yellowtail swim to and fro, browsing the extensive collection of literature, while well-mannered Shortfin Mako sharks enjoy the newest sculpture installation - seaweed! Playful otters float around, there to aid you in your search for the perfect book, stationery item or curated keepsake.
Notable Design Details:
