Not only is Japan famous for its views but also it is famous for its culture and background. Many hotel chains took chance of this fame and paved the ground for others to come. Fifteen hotels opened this year in this spectacular country and there are some more in the pipeline.
Let´s take a look on what is coming to Japan.
What is left of 2018
2018 left us with 15 new openings in Japan and there are also 3 more to go. Although there is just one month and a half left, Japan will welcome this November the Four Points by Sheraton in Chubu International Airport of Nagoya and the Iraph Sui, a Luxury Collection Hotel which will be located on an elevated headland on the southwestern coastline of Irabu in the Miyako Island.
With their pristine white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters, the Miyako Islands are famous scuba diving destinations, boasting spectacular underwater rock formations resulting from volcanic activity, colossal Ryūkyū limestone arches, underwater caves and grottoes, as well as abundant coral and sea life. The Miyako Islands are also becoming a popular port of call for international cruise companies.
Then, December will see the opening of the Skye Niseko , a collection of apartments and penthouses. It is the first privately owned condominium-hotel located within the breathtaking Hokkaido National Park. Situated above the village of Hirafu, the retreat will have contemporary interiors, extensive on-site amenities and mountain views.
2019 is not staying behind on this
There are almost 20 hotels scheduled to open the following year. We will see the 3 most promising hotel projects under construction in Japan:
The beginning of 2019 will see the opening of the Muji Hotel Ginza. The hotel in Ginza will be a 10-story building with floors 1-6 being turned into the world’s largest MUJI flagship store. A section of floor 6 and the remaining floors 7-10 will be the MUJI Hotel.
Far south, in Okinawa, the Halekulani Okinawa is under construction. This hotel will be a resort on a roughly 420-acre stretch of beach in the Onna Village, Kunigami District, on the west coast of Okinawa.
Then, by the end of the year the Park Hyatt Niseko Hanazono, located in one of Asia’s foremost ski resort destinations, will provide convenient access to New Chitose Airport, allowing guests to stay connected to the main hubs of Japan and international destinations.
2020, a promising year
Fifteen projects are set for the promising year 2020:
Also placed in Okinawa, the Hilton Okinawa Sesoko Resort will offer breath-taking ocean views from all its guest rooms. Okinawa Island has multiple beaches such as Manza Beach, Emerald Beach, Okuma Beach, Zanpa Beach, Moon Beach and Sunset Beach. It is the fifth largest island in Japan.
The capitol of the country will also have its openings, 3 set for that year in Tokyo. One is the Fraser Suites Akasaka hotel, redeveloped from an existing 4-storey commercial building. The hotel will be a 23-storey building comprising premier Gold-standard serviced residence.
What will 2021 leave
Last but not least, 2021. Although is far away, already 6 projects are being planned and scheduled to open in 2021.
Also by Fraser, the Capri strategically located in Tokyo´s well-known retail and entertainment district of Ginza. The new Capri by Fraser is just a two-minute walk from the main shopping street of Chuo-dori and a four-minute walk from the Shimbashi Station, providing guests with a quick and convenient route to the CBD.
To finish this report, we took another project from Okinawa: the Hilton Okinawa Kin will be part of an integrated resort development located on the eastern side of Okinawa’s main island facing Kin Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
