At a glance
On entry through the enormous timber doors, kimono-clad staff welcome you into the zen-like quiet and whisk your shoes away into a wall of bamboo boxes, where they will remain until you want to venture out again. This is your invitation to treat the entire 17-storey building as your home, as no uninvited people may enter this exclusive sanctuary.
Located in the Otemachi financial district, HOSHINOYA is close to the business and upmarket shopping area of Marunouchi and just a 15-minute walk from Tokyo Station. From here you can easily access all areas of this massive city on the suburban train lines and subways.
Couples on a romantic getaway will love
Staying here is an opportunity to immerse in the traditions of this fascinating country. Besides the free sake tasting and Grand Kagura show (an ancient form of juggling), held every afternoon, the hotel also offers an impressive collection of curated experiences and activities such as a private evening river cruise through the city’s historic waterways, a rickshaw tour, or a traditional tea ceremony.
There are 84 elegant guest rooms, with only six on each floor. Three room categories (Sakura, Yuri and Kiku) range from 41sqm to 83sqm and the interiors carry the same sense of refined luxury, with plenty of traditional touches including ultra-comfortable futon beds and tatami-matted floors. Inspired by classic ryokans, a full stocked Ochanoma (like a club lounge) is shared by guests of that floor. Here you'll find complimentary 24/7 refreshments including coffee, tea, sodas, rice cakes, Japanese sweets, noodle soups, etc.
Best room for a romantic escape
The spacious Kiku room features a lounge area with dining table and chairs, work desk, generous day bed with a TV hidden away in the mirror opposite, and a large bathroom with shower and a deep Japanese bath, but we think every room category is wonderful.
Dining & Leisure
Rising star chef Noriyuki Hamada is known for his unique nature-inspired Nippon cuisine and we have to say, it’s worth coming to Tokyo just to experience a night of divine cuisine here. With a network of hidden dining spaces on the basement level and only ten tables, you have to book well in advance to ensure you’re part of this incredible dining experience, and remember, no uninvited people may enter this exclusive sanctuary!
Spa & Wellness
With hot spring waters flowing up from 1,500 metres below the hotel (the only Tokyo hotel to offer this) the Otemachi Hot Spring Onsen on the 17th floor is a serious bonus to your stay. The onsite spa offers a tempting menu of beauty treatments and massage, and you may find you spend a lot of time here on the 17th floor.
