Located in the heart of the city, staying at Bulgari Hotel Tokyo is an experience of a merger of Italian royalty and Japanese elegance. Perched atop the Tokyo Midtown Yaesu skyscraper, between the 40th and 45th floors, the Bulgari Hotel Tokyo offers panoramic vistas. To the west, the iconic red bricks of Tokyo Station glisten, to the north the vast expanse of the Imperial Gardens beckon, and on a clear day, the majestic silhouette of Mount Fuji completes the horizon.
Designed by the renowned Milanese architectural firm, ACPV–Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, the hotel embodies a symbiosis of Italian craftsmanship with Japanese precision. From the lavish lobby decked in Italian marble to the intricately crafted elm wood panels reminiscent of Japanese heritage homes, every corner tells a tale of two countries intertwined.
Consistent with Bulgari’s tradition of associating each of its properties with a gem, the Tokyo hotel is symbolized by a pink diamond. This is not only an emblem of luxury but also a tribute to Japan’s cherry blossoms, epitomizing the country’s inherent beauty and balance.
With 98 rooms and suites, the interior decor is a lesson in luxury. Guests are surrounded by furnishings from eminent Italian brands like Maxalto, Flexform, and B&B Italia. Yet, the pièce de résistance is the 416-square-metre Bulgari Suite. Outfitted with a bar, gym, private office, and a sprawling living space, it offers a peerless view of Tokyo’s skyline, making it one of the city’s most coveted accommodations.
Dining at the Bulgari Hotel Tokyo is a gastronomic journey. The exclusive Sushi Hōseki, with just eight seats, is helmed by the Michelin-starred Chef Kenji Gyoten, known for his exquisite sushi masterpieces. Here, against a backdrop of a tranquil Japanese rock garden, guests are treated to a feast that tantalizes all senses. For those craving Italian flavors, Il Ristorante–Niko Romito is a culinary temple. Celebrated dishes, such as handmade tortelli pasta with ricotta, offer authentic tastes of Italy, right in the heart of Tokyo.
The Bulgari Bar and Terrace Gardens on the rooftop are a haven for cosmopolitan connoisseurs. The mosaic masterpiece behind the bar, designed by Italy’s Bisazza, presents a garden tableau, while the outdoor terraces, flanked with trees, provide a serene oasis high above the city’s hustle. The Bulgari Spa is another realm of relaxation. Apart from traditional treatments, guests can indulge in therapies using products from the acclaimed Augustinus Bader brand. The expansive indoor pool, surrounded by glass, allows one to float amidst the clouds, with the Tokyo skyline in full view.
