The biggest MUJI Philippines store is now open


Sometimes all we need to destress is a little bit of retail therapy here and there. For fans of minimalist items that can bring about all the calmness that can take our stress away, visiting the biggest MUJI Philippines store, newly opened on 5th March, should be on your schedule soon.

While Japan’s MUJI havens such as the sprawling MUJI Hotel Ginza are world-famous by now, this store in Metro Manila is the closest thing we have to a minimalist’s pilgrimage spot.


The biggest MUJI branch houses up to 4,000 items

Located at Shangri-La Plaza in Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong, the biggest MUJI branch in the Philippines houses up to 4,000 daily essential items – from everyday apparel to homeware to skincare and to stationery.

For design aficionados, an Open MUJI space is also inside the branch. This is where MUJI presents design concepts you can take inspiration from, and sometimes, workshops on topics such as wooden box making and creating notebooks are even held inside. 

Currently, the Open MUJI space at the branch displays storage ideas you can take note of when organizing your items at home.

When you’re thirsty from all the shopping, you can stop by the water-refilling station nearby the store’s cashier to refill your water bottle for free up to two times. Take a sip only when you’re done shopping though, because drinking inside the store’s premises is not allowed.

And when you don’t have a bottle with you, there are reusable MUJI Water Bottles (P160, ~USD3.29) that you can buy here.
