A fairy tale retreat that mixes 1930s glamour with contemporary cool in Meguro, Tokyo
In 1928, a new Tokyo treasure opened its gates. Hotel Gajoen Tokyo promised cuisine, hospitality and surroundings so otherworldly that it became known as the ‘Palace of the Dragon God’. It fast became a hotspot for luxury society weddings and social events. Today, the original retreat has been carefully transformed. A boutique hotel immersed in omotenashi hospitality that continues to welcome wedding parties and global travellers to Tokyo.
Inside, past and present, classic and contemporary meet in perfect balance. The polished entrance hall contains the original Invitation Gate of Meguro Gajoen, enticing you in to explore. Look out for antique features such as ornately carved wooden panels and Japanese lacquerwork. Or settle into your suite, pour yourself a drink and take in views across the city. Wherever you go in Hotel Gajoen, a sense of calm wraps around you and helps you to unwind.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
