These awards will inspire my team and me to continue to listen to our guests and do everything in our power to make their stay comfortable and rewarding.”
Opening in September 2019, The Okura Tokyo is the flagship hotel of the Okura Group’s luxury brand. It consists of two buildings: The Okura Heritage Wing, a 17-story tower, and The Okura Prestige Tower, a 41-story tower that maintains a distinctly Japanese feel. The hotel has 508 rooms and 5 restaurants serving a variety of Japanese cuisine, including “Yamazato”, which offers fine dining, and “Sazanka”, which serves teppanyaki, a type of cooking using a hot plate. There are also two bars, a tea ceremony room, 19 banquet rooms and the Okura Spa and Fitness Center.
A moment of relaxation
Located on the 27th floor of the Okura Prestige Tower, Okura Fitness & Spa has 7 treatment rooms that offer panoramic views of the Tokyo cityscape. 5 different facial and body classes based on the “Five Elements” philosophy are offered. This ancient Eastern philosophy is based on the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Okura Fitness & Spa is also the first spa in Japan to offer the Annayake concept, which combines Japanese and Western influences and offers products derived from natural ingredients.
