URBAN Escape


Looks can be deceiving. Behind says Daishi Yoshimoto, or exploring the American glass-and-steel façade of Nihonbashi Muromachi Mitsui Tower in downtown Tokyo is a stylish American home. Ride the escalator up from the business lobby of the 34-story office complex and you step into a world far removed from spreadsheets and deals.

Tokyo American Club Nihonbashi, which opened in the heart of the historical quarter in March 2021, is a private membership club with upscale dining, fitness, and private meeting facilities that are as chic as they are welcoming. “We wanted to create a home for the members and so creating this warm atmosphere is extremely important,” says Daishi Yoshimoto, the Club’s architect and a member.

That hominess is imbued in the natural materials throughout the Club, from the basalt wall that leads members from the “living room” lobby to the stunning bar area, to the walnut-pitched ceiling in every area, even the state-of-the-art fitness center. “The walnut gives a modern atmosphere to this space,” Yoshimoto says. “It’s a very solid-looking and warm wood.”

The contemporary fittings and curated artwork on the walls are designed to help members unwind and recharge, whether that’s working out before a Colorado omelet breakfast, or lunching with colleagues Room restaurant’s epicurean offerings with friends.

As the first satellite hub of the Tokyo American Club in Azabudai, the Nihonbashi Club continues the 94-year-old institution’s tradition of community. Its members might be drawn from different countries, backgrounds, and professions, but they share a passion for forging new friendships and living life to the fullest.

For centuries, Nihonbashi has been a center of commerce and innovation at the heart of Japan’s economy. Tokyo American Club Nihonbashi and its members will be helping to write the next chapter in the story of this dynamic Tokyo district.

Address: 6F Nihonbashi Muromachi Mitsui Tower, 3-2-1 Nihonbashi Muromachi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo
