Living Tokyo

Grosvenor in Tokyo

We expanded into the Japan market with the opening of our Tokyo office in 2001.

In recent years we have stepped up our investment activity in the city, acquiring a number of residential assets either wholly owned or in partnership.

In 2017, we acquired  our first retail asset in Japan in the prime shopping district, Ginza, signalling the expansion of our investment portfolio in Tokyo and deepening our presence in the market while maintaining our strength and capability in the residential sector.

My Tokyo

A personal view by Daijiro Murakami

"Despite being such a large modern city, Tokyo actually remains one of the safest metropolitan areas in the world. For families I think this is very important - it makes life here more comfortable, more enjoyable."


Daijiro Murakami, Associate Director, Investment, Grosvenor Asia Pacific

Grosvenor's city insights

  1. Sushi stars

    Naturally, Tokyo features some of the best-quality sushi around. Its restaurants have been awarded more Michelin stars than any other city. Four hundred received stars in 2014, 13 were awarded the highest 3-star ranking.

  2. An Olympic celebration

    Tokyo claims the 2020 Olympics will be the first ever 'downtown games.' The organisers aim to bring the heart of the games into the very centre of this dynamic capital, fully integrating the Olympic celebration into the lives of its 35 million inhabitants.

  3. The festival city

    Tokyo hosts some incredible festivals, none more so than the Sanja Matsuri each May. The three day event provides an exciting introduction to Japanese traditions.

  4. More than shopping...

    Roppongi, an entertainment and retail hotspot, also contains what is known as the 'Roppongi Art Triangle,' consisting of the National Art Centre, Mori Art Museum and Suntory Museum of Art.
