Hotel Chinzanso celebrates its debut with Tokyo’s largest hotel spa and 17-acre botanical garden


The leading Japanese hospitality company Fujita Kanko starts a new chapter in the history of its iconic flagship property Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, re-flagging it under a new name, after 20 years operating as Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Chinzan-so. The hotel is known for a thousand camellia trees – a hundred species – that blossom every winter in the hotel’s garden.

Serenity Garden, a rooftop event space, and Café Foresta, an open-kitchen café specializing in sweets, are among the new additions. Some guest rooms will be renovated to feature bathrooms with magnificent views.

The hotel offers now 260 rooms and suites; 12 restaurants; 36 meeting and banquet rooms, Tokyo’s most extensive meeting/banquet facilities; and Yu, The Spa, Tokyo’s largest hotel spa.

“Our garden, with its rich historical roots, has always separated us from competitors. Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is more than a luxury hotel, it’s a Japanese gem – a one-of-a-kind urban oasis where guests can indulge in the ultimate luxury while experiencing authentic Japanese culture,” said Kazumasa Suezawa, Fujita Kanko’s President and CEO.

The luxury hotel just launched a series of Japanese art and cultural programs for its international guests, including traditional Japanese tea ceremonies, Kokedama “moss-ball bonsai” workshops and Japanese language and etiquette classes.
