The Tokyo Station Hotel

16 10 2013

I had been wanting to visit the newly refurbished and opened Tokyo Station Hotel situated right in the Tokyo Station, one of the busiest and biggest train stations in Japan.  The station building itself on the Marunouchi side where the hotel is located went through an extensive renovation recently and the 1914 pre-war look has been restored.  I finally went the weekend after I returned to Tokyo from my Swiss trip because I had some business in the neighborhood.

I used the opportunity to visit the main lounge/coffee shop on the first floor just after the entrance.  Very nicely designed and decorated inside.

Do come back. There is always something fascinating about Tokyo, old or new. I feel so fortunate to be living in this city.
