Hoshinoya Tokyo, located in the city’s Otemachi business district, marries Japanese tradition with contemporary architecture and design.

At only 17 stories tall, Hoshinoya Tokyo sits small among the financial district’s skyscrapers. Yet its intricate latticework façade, designed by Azuma Architects and modeled after a classic kimono pattern, stands out. Traditional Japanese ryokans (inns) inspired the hotel’s interior, which features tatami mats throughout—not just in the guest rooms but in the lobby, elevators and hallways.

Each floor is fitted with a communal space where guests can find morning rice bowls, afternoon tea and snacks, pre-dinner sake tastings or simply just a place to sit with a book. One of Hoshinoya Tokyo’s trademarks is on its top floor—with open-air ceilings, the Otemachi Hot Springs are a refuge amidst the city’s bustling business district.
