“On August 31, 2015 the Hotel Okura Tokyo ended a 53 year chapter of history with the closing of the Main Building for reconstruction. On September 1, the Hotel Okura Tokyo South Wing reopened, and will continue to conduct all operations until the completion of the New Main Building in 2019.
With 7 restaurants and Bars, 380 guest rooms, banquet halls along with the relocated Hotel Okura Wine Academy, and the renewed Hotel Okura Official Website, we will continue to offer our best service.
We express our sincere thanks to all our guests over the years, and the entire staff looks forward to welcoming you to Hotel Okura Tokyo in the future.”

Even if a place doesn’t exist anymore

It will always live on in your thoughts.

Reality can be deceptive.

Reality can also be the one that is in your head.
