INSPIRED BY TOKYO – It would take a lifetime to completely explore Tokyo, it is a city so vast that it spreads as far as the eye can see. Our first visit took place in November 2019.
We spent ten days in the city, exploring it from corner to corner, completely taken aback by the sheer size of the capital.
The energy of the city is unique and the hotels in Tokyo are some of our favourite in the world.
The Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi which opens today (1 September 2020) is no exception and boasts stunning interiors and incredible views.
Soaring above the centre of Tokyo with panoramic views of the Imperial Palace, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi has opened today, 1 September 2020. Under the masterful touch of Jean-Michel Gathy, legendary principal designer at the award-winning hospitality & design consultancy firm Denniston, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi is poised to reach a new height of luxury in its design statement with Japanese traditions melded seamlessly with a modern European aesthetic.
On the top six floors of the new 39-storey tower + 2 additional floors (Ground Floor and 3rd Floor) adjacent to the Imperial Palace–the capital’s literal and figurative heart, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi will be a restful haven for travellers delivering a new level of luxury experiences at the city’s latest sky-high social scene. The hotel will feature 193 well-appointed guest rooms and suites, a prestigious spa sanctuary and a 20-metre pool on the highest floor as well as four distinct F&B concepts.
Jean-Michel Gathy skillfully presents authentic Japanese elements throughout the design in respecting Japan’s culture, traditions and heritage, while incorporating the finest elements and absolute DNA of Four Seasons. “The cultural diversity of the country has drawn me to create a contemporary expression of the traditional values for this project without arrogance or a sense of overbearing. We aim to ignite the feeling of a home away from home with an inviting, warm and welcoming atmosphere in the most dynamic city” comments Jean-Michel Gathy and Keiko Tsuchiya, the Japanese interior designer at Denniston.
Once travel relaxes, we’ll be returning to Tokyo.
The Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi will be one of our first stops.
