Sakura season at Palace Hotel Tokyo

This passport is no longer available

  • Blossoming Tokyo, launched to coincide with spring in Japan, introduces guests at the Palace Hotel Tokyo to the beauty of sakura. During peak bloom, you’ll be privately chauffeured about the city for a three-hour tour of the city’s best sakura viewing spots. And after peak season, the tour can be tailored entirely to wherever you would like to go in Tokyo – whether it be Ginza for a shopping spree or Aoyama and Omotesando for an art and architectural tour.

    In March and April, the package also features a sakura season Hanami bento box lunch tasting for two at the hotel’s signature Japanese outpost Wadakura while in May, a spring seasonal bento set will be prepared for Blossoming Tokyo guests.

    The hotel’s signature 1-1-1 sake by Hakkaisan, produced exclusively for Palace Hotel Tokyo, is also included, along with a take-home gift by Nousaku, Japanese purveyors of artisanal metal works based on a centuries-old legacy of melding traditional techniques with modern day innovations.

    At an additional charge, the hotel’s concierge team can also arrange the company of a photographer to shoots guests among the blooms (and dressed in traditional kimono, if they’re so inclined) and at their favourite sights, a lesson in ikebana (the Japanese art of arranging flowers), or a workshop on mochi-making – whereby guests can try their hand at pounding rice to produce the fleeting spring treat of sakura mochi.

    The two-night package will be available from 1 March – 31 May 2017.
