Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is located uptown in Mejiro. While it is in the heart of Tokyo, the hotel is surrounded by our spacious scenic green garden, which gives the hotel an aura of quiet serenity.
The property consists of three buildings: the hotel, the plaza and the tower; and a traditional-style Japanese garden. The hotel has 260 rooms, 36 banquet halls, 5 wedding facilities and 12 restaurants. (Google Map)
The wedding facilities are particularly extensive, each with its own bride’s room, beauty salon, dressing room and waiting room for guests.
Chinzan-so itself has a long history. It used to be called Tsubaki-yama (meaning “mountain of camellias”) for its picturesque vistas of blossoming camellias. In 1878, Mr. Aritomo Yamagata (the former Prime Minister of Japan) bought the land to build his home and garden, and named it Chinzan-so.
The garden possesses numerous historic sites, such as the three-story pagoda, the sacred tree (said to be 500 years old), Han'nya-Ji style stone lanterns, the Koshin tower, the Shiratama Inari shrine, and the Seven Deities of Good Fortune, to name a few.
The garden lets our guests experience the four seasons through its changing colors: camellias bloom in the winter, cherry trees bloom in the spring, fireflies fill the garden in the summer and the leaves change colors in the autumn. Please come and see why so many of our guests are awed by the changes of the seasons in the garden.
