The Tokyo Station Hotel
November 2, 2015
In 1915, a huge influx of guests from overseas paved way to the opening of a 56-room Western-style hotel located right inside Tokyo Station.
Withstanding the disasters of the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 and damages caused by air raid on Tokyo in 1945, The Tokyo Station Hotel has always been loved by many avid fans including domestic, foreign dignitaries and people of high society.
In 2003, The Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building was officially designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan and had undergone major preservation and restoration work in 2006. The hotel was temporarily closed for 6 years and finally re-opened in 2012 with renewed European Classic interiors equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. It has been 3 years since the reopening and the memory still lingers of the first day we opened the doors welcoming our guests.
After the preservation and restoration project, we now have a total of 150 elegant guestrooms. The long corridors highlighted by historical photos and artwork displays give us the opportunity to convey to our guests the historical significance this iconic hotel offers.
We clearly remember an instance when an elderly couple who had their wedding here 50 years ago, recently stayed at the hotel sharing memorabilia of their wedding album back then - a very touching experience for us indeed.
All your heartfelt messages were very well received.
“My dream comes true! Had an unforgettable stay and we will surely come back.” “Please continue to share the story. This hotel is absolutely Japanese Pride” “We felt the genuine hospitality from the hotel staff” and so on and so forth.
Your warm words of encouragement had been and will continue to be our great support and stronghold over the years.
“For the next 100 years, positioned in the main gateway of Tokyo, we aim to continue to shine and move forward whilst forever be grateful to the heritage that our predecessors had handed down to us”
The above is one of the mission statements we strongly adhere to since we reopened in 2012. We are proud of the rich history of the Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building and we pay homage to the tremendous effort contributed by so many. With this in mind, we shall continue to strive and keep the heritage alive.
The next 100 years is a long haul. However, we firmly believe that a promising future is yet to come as we pass on the baton to the next generation.
Once again, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude for your continued patronage and we humbly look forward to sharing with you a brighter future ahead of us.
