This Art Deco style hotel was designed by William Merrell Vories. The great writers, like Kawabata Yasunari, Mishima Yukio, Ikenami Shotaro and Yamaguchi Hitomi, loved to stay here when they wanted to concentrate for their writing. The first intention of use of the hotel was educating Japanese women about western manner and life style. Released from GHQ after the Pacific War, the hotel restarted its business in 1954.
Those restaurant received stars in the Michelin guide book “Tempura Kondo” at Ginza and “Fukamachi” at Kyobashi. Their chefs were trained at “Tempura & Japanese Cuisine Yamanoue” located in this hotel.
The writers stuck inside their room to write sneaked out to have a glass of drink at bar “Non Non.” There are seven of restaurants and bars to choose according to your feeling of the day.
The hotel will serve you with tasteful art deco style interior and personal service at the top of hill surrounded by trees. You may forget it is located in the center of Tokyo.
