    Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, Japanese hospitality company Fujita Kanko’s iconic five-star flagship property, announced that it has begun a major renovation to upgrade and refurbish all 260 guest rooms. The renovation takes place in three phases: 66 rooms during August-November 2014, 99 rooms during January-March 2015, and 95 rooms during January-March 2016. The two key themes in the renovation are ‘home away from home’ and ‘Japonesque.’ The new interior design, timeless elegance, will emphasize Japanese elements and art pieces such as traditional Japanese color themes, Arita ceramics, Nishijin-ori throws, Ukiyo-e and Japanese woodblock prints.

    To make guests feel truly at home, each room will offer a sofa to relax, a 50-inch TV, Japanese and Western tableware such as plates, chopsticks and tea pot, coffee machine and more. The mini-bar area will be more spacious and functional. The other upgraded amenities will include: Hansgrohe’s innovative shower heads that give invigorating massages; a full-set of skincare products; and a set of toiletries per guest, not per room.

    Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo was re-flagged in 2013 after 20 years as Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Chinzan-so, offering 12 restaurants; 36 meeting and banquet rooms, Tokyo’s most extensive meeting/banquet facilities; and Yu, The Spa, Tokyo’s largest hotel spa. Fujita Kanko’s rebranding plans include investing over $80 million in renovations. New facilities have also been added, including a one-of-a-kind rooftop event space, Serenity Garden.

    Formerly the residence of Prince Aritomo Yamagata, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is known for its historic heritage and its majestic Japanese botanical garden with numerous botanical species, birds and insects, a majestic green oasis in the middle of Tokyo. Its unique services include kimono rentals and fittings and traditional Japanese tea ceremony performed at the hotel’s authentic tea house.

    The hotel is currently taking reservations for the renovated rooms that will be available on November 15th.
