Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi (The Four Seasons) is prominently placed in the Marunouchi central business district, the commercial heart not merely of Tokyo, but of all of Japan. The Four Seasons offers a striking, contemporary setting within the landmark glass-clad tower of the prestigious Pacific Century Place, a prestigious office and retail development neighboring Ginza shopping district and directly connected to Tokyo Station. A small jewel in Tokyo with 57 rooms, The Four Seasons offers a boutique luxury hotel experience that focuses on providing the best-personalized service.

The City of Kyoto is the most traditional city in one of the world’s most advanced countries. It was the centre of Japan’s culture and the imperial capital of Japan for more than 1,000 years. Kyoto boasts over 2,000 shrines and temples and numerous seasonal festivals and celebrations. It remains home to roughly 20% of Japan’s National Treasures and approximately 14% of its Important Cultural Properties; 17 of which have been registered as World Heritage Sites. Much of Kyoto’s traditional culture, which flourished during the Heian period, has been passed on and preserved, creating a repository of cultural excellence that cannot be experienced elsewhere.

Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau attracts tourists and conventions to Tokyo, one of the most exciting and modern cities in the world. With over 400 years of history as the capital of Japan, Tokyo has a rich cultural heritage originating in the Edo period. The juxtaposition of the historical with the modern in terms of architecture, customs and trends make Tokyo unique and very different from any other city in the world. Modern architectural masterpieces exist side by side with historic temples, beautiful gardens, shrines and shops that have been in business for generations where kimono clad customers mingle with clientele wearing the latest in designer fashions. The beauty of Tokyo lies in its individual neighborhoods and in many ways Tokyo is the largest, most exciting village in the world. One can undoubtedly appreciate the fusion of traditional, modern and natural elements of the city.
