Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo Renovations Underway

TOKYO—Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, Japanese hospitality company Fujita Kanko’s flagship property, has begun a major renovation to upgrade and refurbish all 260 guestrooms. 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,” according to the company. The new interior design will emphasize Japanese elements and art pieces such as traditional Japanese color themes, Arita ceramics, Nishijin-ori throws, Ukiyo-e and Japanese woodblock prints.

Each room will offer a sofa to relax, a 50-in. TV, Japanese and Western tableware such as plates, chopsticks and teapot and coffee machine. The other upgraded amenities will include: Hansgrohe’s showerheads that give massages; a full-set of skincare products; and a set of toiletries per guest.  

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 meeting/banquet facilities; and Yu, The Spa.
