New in Town – Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi

We were positively surprised that a leading brand such as the Four Seasons pushes ahead with their global expansion plans even at times of a new Covid-19 reality. The brand new hotel opened at the beginning of September this year, which is already its second hotel in Tokyo.

The property itself was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and is managed by Mitsui Real Estate. Acclaimed designer Jean Michel-Gathy of Denniston was in charge of the interiors. His aim was “to reflect Japanese inspiration and the hotel’s views,” which on a clear day includes a view on Mount Fuji and Tokyo Sky Tree.
