A group firm of Sapporo Holdings Ltd. opened a new commercial building in Tokyo’s Ginza shopping district on Saturday.

People queued up before the opening of the “Ginza Place,” which houses shops and restaurants as well as showrooms of Nissan Motor Co. and Sony Corp.

“We want to help increase the vibrancy of Ginza,” Sapporo Real Estate Co. President Toshiyuki Ikoma said at the opening ceremony.

The 11-story building with two underground stories has a total floor space of around 7,350 square meters.
