    History of the Hotel

    Tokyo Station Hotel was opened just a year after the opening of Tokyo Station. At first, it only featured 56 rooms with a European-style atmosphere. It showcased magnificent works of art found in its facilities and architecture. It was clearly one of the most beautiful hotels of those times. However, the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 affected the hotel’s function. It became a home to many people affected by the disaster. At the end of the Second World War when resuming the hotel, it opened the first coffee bar in Japan. A grand renovation was made in 2006 which paved the way to the hotel’s grand re-opening on October 3, 2012.
