“KICHO GINZA” opened its second store after the first in Ebisu. Ebisu store was in the basement with a high ceiling. Ginza store is in the middle floor where the ceiling is not so high. The architectural conditions were the opposite.

The skeleton ceiling surface is paited in black so that it is perceived as darkness. Ventilation hoods on the grill kitchen and the entire wall are finished with various facial expressions by a master plasterer Naoki Kusumi creating a scene as if the figure of the griller had risen to the stage.

Combining indigenous materials such as wood, soil, and stone, the lighting used only a highlight scene creates a dignified and modern atmosphere in a warm texture.
