Experience the Full Bloom of Sakura Magic with Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi

A sojourn through cherry blossom season, curated by Four Seasons experts

March 5, 2024,
Tokyo, Japan

This spring, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi invites guests to immerse in the famed fascinations of sakura through a bouquet of seasonal offerings. As cherry trees across the city burst into bloom, Tokyo lights up in pink and white, forming a fragrant wonderland for Hanami, the Japanese art of viewing and appreciating cherry blossoms.

From in-room sakura decorations to seasonally inspired sweets, cocktails and dining, the stage is set for enchanting floral discoveries a la Four Seasons. Guests can also embark on sakura-themed sojourns at THE SPA, explore cherry blossom spots around the Hotel, and savour a gourmet picnic under flower-laden branches.

Soaring above the streets of Japan’s iconic capital, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi offers spectacular views of pink-petal canopies in the Imperial Palace Gardens — the historical site of the former Edo Castle. With direct access to Tokyo’s extensive subway system through Otemachi Station, guests also enjoy easy access to sakura-viewing spots around the city.

In-Room Blossom Viewing

Bask in the ethereal beauty of cherry blossoms all day and all night. Guests at Four Seasons can now enjoy sakura viewing in privacy and comfort with a cherry tree in their very own room or suite. The Hotel offers an extended Hanami experience with several varieties of sakura that flower at different times. This means guests can continue to enjoy cherry blossoms in full bloom even when the city’s sakura season is nearly over.
