Renew precious relationships while creating new memories together in the Land of the Rising Sun, with Four Seasons Japan Collection. From vibrant cities, both ancient and futuristic, to a vast natural canvas of mountains, forests and coasts, Japan beckons travellers to rediscover their sense of wonder and discovery in the company of loved ones.

“At Four Seasons, we have always believed life is richer when we connect with the world around us – and with each other,” says Andrew De Brito, Regional Vice President. “As international travel resumes, we are excited to welcome couples, families and friends to share brand-new adventures in Japan. At the same time, guests can expect the same Four Seasons hospitality as before – warm, personable and here to make each moment memorable.”

The brand offers three unique experiences in Japan. In the ancient city of Kyoto, find an enchanting garden haven draped in history and artistry. In Tokyo, two distinct properties await: a boutique urban retreat situated just steps from Tokyo Station, and a vibrant sky-high sanctuary in the financial heart of the city.

With seamless connections between Four Seasons Hotels, guests can look forward to a smooth and personalized journey. By turns dynamic, meditative, intriguing and indulgent, the Four Seasons experience reveals the authentic spirit of this multifaceted destination.
