Bask in the Beauty of Japan's Four Seasons at Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo

Treat yourself to a luxurious stay at one of Tokyo's top hotels, complete with a historic garden

Not many hotels feature a historic and exquisite Japanese garden on the premises, making Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo a true gem among Tokyo’s luxury accommodation options. Originally the grounds of a feudal lord’s residence, the first garden on the property was destroyed during World War II but replanted with 10,000 trees in the 1950s. Today, the leafy property is a welcome escape in any season, though it particularly shines in the spring, when cherry blossoms dance in the wind, and fall, when maple leaves provide a stunning burst of color on the landscape. In summertime, the green oasis is a haven for fireflies, creating an otherworldly scene that's hard to come by in Tokyo’s heavily urban environment.

A number of Chinzanso Tokyo’s rooms overlook the gardens, offering a serene view in contrast to the bustling city beyond. Even for those not fortunate enough to stay at the hotel overnight, a similar view can be enjoyed from the property’s restaurants. Enjoy a tower of afternoon tea treats at the hotel’s Le Jardin eatery, or dine on the grounds of the garden itself and enjoy handmade soba or a memorable course meal of seasonal delicacies.
