The new flagship hotel of Hotel Okura, The Okura Tokyo, has opened its doors after four years of rebuilding works; the original Hotel Okura Tokyo opened in 1962 and closed on August 2015.
A total of 508 luxury rooms are available in two buildings on the property. The smaller of the two buildings, the 17-storey Okura Heritage Wing, boasts its own reception, and views of gardens and greenery on three sides. Guestrooms here start at 60m2, and the building is also home to the Yamazato Japanese restaurant and Chosho-an tea ceremony room.
Meanwhile, guestrooms within the 41-storey Okura Prestige Tower begin on the 28th floor. Starting from 50m2 in size, rooms afford vistas of the Tokyo metropolis.
On the top floor of The Okura Prestige Tower, guests have views of the city while dining at Sazanka, the hotelâ€™s reborn teppanyaki restaurant. Additionally, there is also an all-day dining restaurant, Orchid, and Chinese restaurant Toh-Ka-Lin, while on the 26th and 27th floors sits the Okura Fitness & Spa.
The Okura Prestige Tower is equipped with eight event spaces, including The Heian Room, one of the largest ballrooms in Tokyo which can accommodate up to 2,000 people. The top two guest floors of The Okura Prestige Tower â€“ the 39th and 40th floors â€“ comprise a 730m2 duplex suite with three bedrooms, which can also be booked out by planners.
Lastly, The Okura Museum of Art, originally established in 1917 as Japanâ€™s first privately operated art museum, is also located on the hotel grounds. It offers some 2,500 works of art, among which are three National Treasures, 13 Important Cultural Properties and 44 Important Art Objects designated by the Japanese government.
