Tokyu Capitol Hotel
A city full of luxury, vibrant and modern, historical and rich in culture, Japan is deserving of its mystical and intriguing fame.
Tokyo, the capital and the heart of Japan, is a modern and vibrant city whose history, culture, gastronomy and, of course, high hospitality, make us fall in love with all those who visit it.
It is here, amongst skyscrapers and ancient temples, that we can find the elegant figure of The Capitol Hotel Tokyu, a five-star establishment conveniently located in the heart of Tokyo. Modern but with traditional touches –such as fine white wood– make this luxurious hotel a reflection of the city where it is located.
The Capitol Hotel Tokyu is part of Preferred Hotels, a catalog that includes hotels only with the highest standards of quality, excellence, service, and luxury. The Preferred Hotels portfolio assures us that the hotels that belong to this select and exclusive group will always surprise us and offer travelers an unforgettable touch, a detail that stands out and will undoubtedly fascinate us.
The Suiren del Capitol Hotel Tokyu restaurant, with light Japanese food, is the place where the famous Asian hospitality is taken literally and where you can enjoy delicious teppan-yaki, sushi, and kaiseki food. 'Kaiseki' was the name of the light meal that was served in the typical Japanese tea ceremony. Today it is synonymous with haute cuisine in Japan; is the true Japanese cuisine, at its best. In Suiren this complicated and exquisite food is achieved to perfection.
Another marvelous experience that we can live at the Hotel is to witness the sacred ritual of Shinto preformed by priests. The Hie Shrine, from the year 1590, is located right next to the hotel and guests can access an otherwise restricted hall of worship where we can see this ritual. The Shrine was the guardian of the Tokugawa Shogun in Edo period and then for the imperial family.
A wonderful mixture of tradition and modernization, Capitol Tokyu Hotel is the embodiment of the magic of the country where it is located, functioning as a portal to all of its wonders.
