Japan’s First Western-Style Hotel

Experience the spirit of classical Japanese hospitality

Since its establishment in 1890, the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo has impressed both high-profile foreign and Japanese patrons alike, being one of the first Victorian-style hotels in the nation, outfitted with western furniture, such as American beds, wood-burning fireplaces, and English sterling silver cutlery.

Today, the Imperial still welcomes all guests at its luxurious western accommodations, infused with the spirit of classical Japanese hospitality. Notably, in 1923, the original structure was replaced with an elaborate low-rise, designed by acclaimed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. In its more than 125 years of business, the Imperial has grown famous, having hosted multitude of well-known people, including Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Queen Elizabeth II, the Emperor of Japan, and Singaporean P.M. Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, to mention a few.

The Imperial Tokyo has a total of 931 guest rooms and 18 food outlets, including La Brasserie, a popular French bistro offering a dish created especially for Queen Elizabeth II when she visited in 1975, and Ten-ichi, one of the most famous tempura restaurants in the world.
