by | 25 Sep 2020 | Projects

Japan’s highly anticipated new Four Seasons outpost, which features 190 keys and exceptional F&B venues plus a cutting-edge spa atop a 39-storey skyscraper, has started welcoming guests.

The third Four Seasons property in Japan, Tokyo’s latest luxury hotel provides visitors with a haven of luxury, style and wellbeing. We take a look inside the sky-high sanctuary.

Tokyo’s new urban retreat

Soaring above the bustling streets of Tokyo, the hotel lies at the heart of the city’s prominent financial district, Otemachi, just moments from the Imperial Palace.

“We are delighted to welcome guests to the third Four Seasons in Japan, a truly stunning property that reflects Tokyo’s captivating contrast of modern innovation and honoured traditions,” said Christian Clerc, president of Four Seasons Global Operations. “In collaboration with our remarkable partners at Mitsui Fudosan Resort Management, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi will deliver next-generation luxury through its combination of design, service, wellness experiences and culinary artistry by award-winning chefs.”

“In Japan, the art of hospitality is known as omotenashi; here at Four Seasons, it’s how we take care of our guests every day around the world,” added regional vice president and general manager, Andrew De Brito, who leads a 285-strong team. “Whether staying with us for business or enjoying a daily staycation, meeting close friends for drinks or taking a much-needed break in our spa, at Four Seasons our utmost priority is the health and safety of our guests in an environment that is enjoyable and memorable.”

A quiet refuge above the city

This enticing hotel spans the highest floors of a new 39-storey tower designed by architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. The lead designer of Denniston, Jean-Michel Gathy, has crafted the space inside to make the most of its panoramic views while taking inspiration from Japanese aesthetics.

These modern interiors are enhanced by the commissioned artworks of Namiko Kitaura and floral design of Namiko Kajitani of Zero Two Three. Here, the 170 guest rooms and 20 suites, including a lavish Imperial Suite on the 38th floor, come with floor-to-ceiling windows and sumptuous details such as signature Four Seasons beds.

In this stylish property, the facilities include four new restaurant and bar concepts, among them a trio envisioned by Spin Design Studio, offering the seasonal menus of a culinary team led by the hotel’s executive chef Marco Riva. Guests can try the authentic Italian fare of chef Yoshihiro Kigawa at Pigneto, gastronomic exploration of Michelin-starred chef Guillaume Bracaval at Est and a contemporary take on the traditional afternoon tea by executive pastry chef Yusuke Aoki at The Lounge, before ending the day at the Paris-meets-Tokyo cocktail bar Virtù with drink creations by head bartender Joshua Perez.

A memorable spa experience

Offering a calming sanctuary above the city, meanwhile, The Spa spans the hotel’s top floor, with innovative therapies including the signature Yakusugi Forest Renewal ritual provided by the director of spa and fitness Eriko Mutoh’s team in five treatment rooms. Steam rooms, ofuro (Japanese baths), a state-of-the-art gym and a 20-metre indoor pool complete the wellness offering.

To round off this new property’s facilities, the hotel houses 1,370 sq m of flexible event space, from a naturally lit grand ballroom and 39th-floor social room to a wedding chapel, with a wedding atelier on the third floor for planning services.

Taking current health requirements into account, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi has opened in full compliance with local health and safety requirements and the global Four Seasons programme Lead With Care. The hotel is conveniently located by the subway hub, Otemachi Station, and a short walk from the main rail terminal, Tokyo Station.
