Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is located uptown in Mejiro. While it is in the heart of Tokyo, the hotel is surrounded by a spacious scenic green garden, which gives the hotel an aura of quiet serenity. The property consists of three buildings: the hotel, the plaza and the tower; and a traditional-style Japanese garden. The hotel has 260 rooms, 38 banquet halls, 5 wedding facilities and 9 restaurants.
700 years ago, the land on which Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo sits was called Tsubakiyama (Mountain of Camellias), where wild camellias bloomed. In the Edo Era, famous poet Basho Matsuo lived next to the garden and a lord’s mansion was on the property. Throughout the years, it has maintained Kaiyu-styled gardens with a vast green grasslands, a pond, a Tsukiyama (earth molded to look like a small mountain) and winding rivers.
On November 11, 1952, a grand opening ceremony for the new Chinzanso garden, with a restaurant, took place. Ever since then, Chinzanso has been known throughout Japan for its prestigious wedding facilities and its exquisite garden restaurants.
The spacious garden makes Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo different from any other hotel in Tokyo. An urban oasis, it blooms throughout the year. You smell the fragrance of woods and flowers and hear the sounds of a waterfall and the chirping of song birds. Spring water flows, fireflies dance, and you encounter wild creatures. A walk in the garden brings peace and relaxation to weary travelers.
The staff at Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo treat every guest as though they are royalty and strive to meet the needs of their guests. Instead of saying “no”, everyone at the staff works hard to come up with alternate solutions should any accessibility issues arise.
