Tokyo, Japan

Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi invites guests ready for the cooler weather to discover new fall flavours, sensational spa treatments, and autumn sights from the top of Japan’s capital.

“Fall is a time to take a moment and relish in the beautiful and bounty of the season,” says Regional Vice President and General Manager Andrew De Brito. “We invite guests to spend more precious time with friends and family, and refresh body and mind.”

As the weather starts to get chilly and the days become shorter, cosy-up above the clouds at Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi -- the city’s favourite sky-high sanctuary.

Fall Fare Arrives at est

Under the direction of Chef Guillaume Bracaval, est unveils its new fall menu and it is brimming with autumnal flavours and local ingredients, making for dishes that will awaken and excite the palate.

Chef Guillaume and Pastry Chef Michele Abbatemarco make regular visits to local farmer markets to seek out the fall’s best produce and to find inspiration. Beautifully grown kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) from Ishikawa and earthy mushrooms find their way into elegant yet comforting preparations. Standout dishes include entrée végétal et gourmandise featuring veal sourced from Tokachi Prefecture roasted with rolled laitues braisée of romaine lettuce layered with garlic and anchovy, then finished with a smoked tuna, capers and mustard olive oil emulsion. This season also welcomes back the culinary diamonds of the kitchen – white truffles.

The waters just off of Hakodate coastline also offer a bounty of culinary treasures for the est team to work with. Deep-water cod is roasted and served with cauliflower purée and a quattro of seasonal mushrooms finished with a fish marrow and mushroom reduction espresso sauce -- an artfully crafted preparation rich in fall flavours.

Like a flower unravelling its petals from summer to fall, Pastry Chef Michele’s Sous Une Pluie de Petales is a masterful artwork of the season’s expression featuring hime turnip and shine muscat. A return of a fall favourite - Retour de l’Automne - is a journey through the woods. Indulge in a union of sweet notes from Tochigi's nashi pears and earthly aromas of porcini mushrooms - creamed, powered, and ice creamed - with delicate slices of champignon de Paris.

Exceptional ingredients, creativity and care are all at the heart of est new fall menu, now being served at lunch and dinner.

With age and everyday environmental stressors, this next-generation beauty treatment elevates skincare to a whole new level. A fragrant foot bath, followed by a back, neck and shoulder massage, sets the stage for this transformative treatment.

Sink into deep relaxation with a Head & Foot Release and the sweet scent of the autumn floral, kinmokusei blossoms.
