Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi, the Japanese capital’s second Four Seasons hotel, is now open for reservations for stays from July 1 this year, ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games.
The new Four Seasons hotel is perched on the top six floors of the Otemachi One Tower, a new 39-storey building located in Tokyo’s major financial district facing the Imperial Palace with Mount Fuji visible in the distance. The hotel has 170 guestrooms and 20 suites with sizes starting from 46 sqm.
The hotel will offer direct access to its namesake Otemachi Station, which has five subway lines and is one of the largest subway stations in Tokyo. For high-speed rail and intercity rail services, the capital’s main rail terminal Tokyo Station is also within walking distance.
The hotel will be home to four dining outlets. Est, at the helm of Michelin-starred chef Guillaume Bracaval, will have French cuisine combined with Japanese techniques and terroir. Pigneto is an Italian restaurant equipped with four show kitchens and an outdoor terraza facing the Imperial Palace Gardens.
The hotel describes its bar Virtù as “contemporary Tokyo meets old world Paris”.
There’s also The Lounge for afternoon tea with traditional Japanese sweets and savouries accompanied by French desserts.
