New Tokyo hotel

Article content

5 November 2010


The Capitol Hotel Tokyu, a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts, opened its doors to guests in October.

Designed by world-famous architect Kengo Kuma, the building aims to reinterpret traditional Japanese architecture and places tradition and culture as its core theme.

The Capitol Hotel Tokyu is located in a tranquil, green oasis in the downtown Tokyo Akasaka area, overlooking the city’s historic Hie Shrine and close to the Prime Minister’s official residence.

The 29-storey luxury hotel features 251 guest rooms - with traditional ‘shoji’ paper screens - and panoramic views of Tokyo’s skyline from the 18th to 29th floors.

Facilities include five restaurants and bars, five banquet spaces and two floors of state of the art fitness and spa facilities, including a 20-metre indoor swimming pool, membership gym and jacuzzi.

General Manager Susumu Togashi, said: "The Capitol Hotel Tokyu’s unique concept marks a sophisticated new era in Japanese hospitality. It is a new type of luxury hotel in Tokyo that adopts Japanese tradition and culture as its core theme."

Architect Kengo Kuma, said: "The question is not how you design the building, but how you design the relationship between the outside and the inside. You do not separate spaces with walls, but you use flexible screens, and you aim for an integration of the building with the garden and the woods.

"It’s a miracle that such a densely wooded environment still exists in the middle of the city."
