It’s a rare Tokyo hotel where you’re in touch with nature, aside from a distant view of Mount Fuji — but the Capitol Hotel Tokyu is anything but typical. Here, surrounded by greenery on the edge of the Imperial Palace, guests can use the local flora as their calendar: camellias mean winter, cherry blossoms spring, and the red-orange-yellow leaves of the maple tree are a sure sign of fall.

The new incarnation of the Capitol — a total ground-up rebuild — was designed by the master architect Kengo Kuma, and as such it offers the clean lines and minimalist aesthetic that typifies a certain Japanese style. You simply won’t feel right cluttering the bathroom with half-opened toiletries or tossing your clothes about the snowy white, duvet-covered bed. Instead, you’ll want to open the shoji paper screens to let in the light from the vast windows of this high-rise property or lay on the divan and watch as central Tokyo transforms itself, nightly, into a galaxy, with neon and fluorescent stars — or, if you’re facing the Palace, you can see something that’s, in this town, even more spectacular: total darkness.

This is one of Tokyo’s original grand hotels, and it demonstrates the thoughtfulness you’d expect from such success. Just-picked berries or other very local produce may show up in the dishes at the well-regarded Suiren. A second restaurant specializes in Chinese delicacies, and there are two separate lounges in which to relax and unwind with a cocktail. The two-floor fitness center encompasses a full-service spa and a twenty-meter indoor pool.

All of urban Tokyo is within easy reach via taxi or subway, but if you’ve got time, it pays to explore on foot — the reconstructed Hie Shrine is practically next door, and runners will be thankful for easy access to the foot path that circumnavigates the Palace: a lap or two is a rite of passage.

Please note: This hotel offers both smoking and non-smoking rooms. If you have a preference, please indicate it in the special requests section during the booking process, or contact for assistance.

How to get there: From Narita Airport, the Narita Express train connects to Tokyo Station after a trip of approximately 90 minutes. This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
