Hotel Gajoen Tokyo is a museum and hotel that underwent revamp last April and is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. The establishment opened its new Gajoen Art Tour for guests on June 18.
The tour will take place every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 9am for an hour and a half. Guests staying at the hotel will be guided through the myriad of marvelous art displays on show at Hotel Gajoen Tokyo.
The hotel is known for hosting wedding ceremonies and opened as Japan’s first wedding complex. Weddings take place at the Oumi-den which is home to colourful wooden carvings of cranes and deer, which are divine messengers, as well as the auspicious plum blossom. There’s also folding fans spread out on the ceiling as a good omen.
The tour will also introduce people to the many special rooms in the hotel, including the Gyokujo, a striking Japanese style banquet room with beautiful mother-of-pearl inlays and artwork by Japanese painter Gyokujo Masuda. There’s also the Hyakudan Kaidan, or 100 Steps Staircase, which was registered by Tokyo Prefecture as a Tangible Cultural Property. Guests can look forward to commentary of the artwork on display in the hotel.
There’s also the temple and shrine walking tour that began on June 19 which will take place every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9am. People will be guided around the temples and shrines near the hotel including Daienji, Gohyaku Rakanji, Ryusenji, and more.
