The hotel houses 267 guests rooms, including 44 suites, nine dining facilities, 38 well-equipped banquet/meeting facilities, and one of the largest spas in Tokyo. Most of the rooms boast magnificent views of the garden, which has historical artifacts and structures like a three-story pagoda built in the 14th century and a 100-year-old tea house registered as a tangible cultural asset. It has been recognized with Michelin’s 5 Red Pavilions, and 4 stars in the Forbes Travel Guide Hotel and Spa category.

Changing seasonal beauty has significant meaning in Japanese culture, at our garden we celebrate cherry blossoms in spring, dancing fireflies in early summer, amazing autumn foliage, and camellias blooming in the snow. We hope more international guests experience this Japanese gem and urban oasis.”
The hotel’s emphasis on authentic Japanese experiences includes features such as a Japanese suite and onsen, in addition to activities such as traditional tea ceremonies and kimono fitting/rentals.
