6 Comments

Tokyo American Club has opened Tokyo American Club Nihonbashi, a satellite club of Tokyo American Club, on the 6th floor of the Nihonbashi Muromachi Mitsui Tower.

The Nihonbashi district, in which the Nihonbashi Muromachi Mitsui Tower is located, is within walking distance from Tokyo station. In this district, Mitsui Fudosan is committed to promoting the Nihonbashi Revitalization Plan together with the public and private sectors and accelerating to create a global community by gathering various people and goods from around the world and spreading Japan’s charm to the world.

The opening of Tokyo American Club Nihonbashi within the Nihonbashi Muromachi Mitsui Tower will bring a new aspect to the historic Nihonbashi area through greater diversity and enhanced cosmopolitan appeal. This is the first case for a real estate developer to invite an international social club into an office building as a tenant. Tokyo American Club Nihonbashi is a private membership club and the first satellite facility in the 93-year history of Tokyo American Club. In addition to the recruitment of new members for the Nihonbashi club, existing Tokyo American Club members have full access to the Tokyo American Club Nihonbashi facility.

According to the Tokyo American Club's website, the cost for joining is:

1,500,000 yen - Entrance Fee

200,000 yen - Deposit

22,000 yen - Monthly fee for one person

And based on that, membership at the new Nihombashi branch mentioned in this article is a steal:

500,000 yen - Entrance Fee (limited time low cost, apparently)

100,000 yen - Deposit

15,000 yen - Monthly fee for one person

Nihonbashi for what it offers is too expensive.... maybe as a Yuppy bragging thing, but ... total waste of money.

The Azabu site however is huge, and offers contacts with the CIA as they spy over the next door Russian embassy there.... joking aside, it's bigger and has some sporting facilities. I wouldn't be surprised if the Russian Embassy has a Corporate membership ! ;-)

Both are not cheap (nor good value), once you get your foot through the door, you pay through the nose for everything - same as you would going to a high end gym or restaurant. If you Play Squash, then it's probably a good place for you to consider, especially if you don't speak much Japanese.

The Global tie-up membership places, don't really look that appealing - would welcome any input to suggest otherwise upon that.

Save your $, buy a decent home Gym, and treat your family regularly to outings per month for the same cost , perhaps its just not for me, the old adage about a fool easily parts with his money.... does not apply to me, but then I am not super rich to afford to be a fool.

Western politicians. American spies. Foreign elites.

Definitely, there won't be many Japanese people around.

For the rich, obviously. You can count me out, I guess.
