About Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo
Why Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo
A one-of-a-kind Japanese garden
The majestic garden of Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is truly one of a kind, promising a breathtaking experience to guests in every season. From the snow-laced winter gardens, to the gentle spring breeze rustling among the spring blossoms, the verdant green and fireflies of summer, and the warm red autumn leaves, every visit to the garden is different from the last. History and culture abound along the garden paths that have been faithfully preserved by its various owners over the generations. Guests can pass by a three-story pagoda that is a national tangible cultural asset dating back to the Muromachi era (1338-1573), and a sacred tree said to be 500 years old.
Rooms combining European design with a touch of Japanese elegance
A vital part of a hotel stay is the room itself, and guests at Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo will appreciate the refined European aesthetic of the rooms accented by Japanese sensibilities such as Arita-yaki porcelain. Garden View rooms overlook the picturesque garden, while the City View provides a vision of the vast metropolis. For a truly luxurious experience, nine fully unique suite rooms are available, such as the View Bath Suite that gives a panoramic view of the garden from the comfort of a warm bath. The rooms are regularly refurbished with new furnishings and functionality to guarantee guests satisfaction during their stay.
Tradition stemming from a rich history
The history of Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo stretches back well over a century: it was acquired in 1878 by Yamagata Aritomo, former prime minister of Japan, when it was known simply as the “mountain of camellias.” Becoming the site of his residence, Yamagata invited many Meiji-era cultural figures and diplomats to admire the sights of the garden. The rich tradition of the land lives on to this very day, allowing guests to try on a kimono and stroll in the lush garden, participate in an authentic tea ceremony, and enjoy other sincere cultural experiences.
The ideal fusion of function and hospitality
Japan is famous across the world for its traditional brand of hospitality, “Omotenashi,” which offers careful consideration to the needs of the guest, from carefully selected amenities to cuisine showcasing Japan’s freshest seasonal flavors. Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo offers its guests this trademark of Japan together with convenience and functionality meeting the highest expectations. Having provided 5-star service for decades, our hotel meets the strictest standards of service from both a Japanese and Western perspective.
A different flower to greet each visit
No matter when you choose to visit the hotel, the garden will be bright with the colors of seasonal flowers. In winter months, the hotel’s namesake, the camellia, is at its peak, while in spring the garden is famous for the 20 varieties of cherry blossoms blooming there. Other notable residents include plum blossoms and hydrangea. A leisurely walk in the garden, a meal at one of our 9 restaurants, or even a business meeting are all made memorable by the stunning view of the marvels of the season. Even on rainy days, the garden glistens with natural beauty observed from the comfort of the hotel lobby or lounge.
