HOSHINOYA Tokyo’s New Hotel Plan Lets Guests Cool Down in the Summer With an Edo Period Stay
09.May.2021 | SPOT
HOSHINOYA Tokyo is shining the spotlight on Japan’s Edo period culture once again this summer with a new hotel stay experience, Edo Suzumi (“Edo Cooling Down”), which will run from June 1 to August 31.
Air cons are common in Japan, but they didn’t exist during the Edo Period. The people of Edo therefore had to find alternatives for cooling down during the hot Japanese summer heat. HOSHINOYA Tokyo’s new hotel plan will showcase just this by preparing special guest rooms for cooling off, making tsuri shinobu ornamental plans, making tea with both Japanese and Chinese ingredients, and more. Desserts made with sweet sake, something which townsfolk enjoyed drinking during the cool summer evenings, will also be served when the sun sets.
Edo Suzumi: 3 Things to Look Forward to
1. Guest rooms specially prepared with the Edo Period in mind
Guest rooms will be decorated with cool indigo-dyed cloth. They will also feature a number of things that the people of Edo observed to cool down during the summer blaze, such as goldfish, tsuri shinobu, seasonal flower prints, and more. The colour blue reminds one of water and so when seen it is said to make one feel cooler by reducing the pulse, number of breaths, and blood pressure.
Guests will be able to make their very own tsuri shinobu, a decorate hanging fern made from moss and bamboo which is suspended like a wind chime to create the same refreshing sensation during summer.
2. HOSHINOYA Tokyo’s new Suzumi Seats cool you off in the evenings
In the evenings, water will be sprayed on the hotel plaza floor, in the same area as where the new Suzumi Seats are. During the Edo Period, people would lay out suzumidai seats and sit outdoors in the evenings when the temperature drops. At HOSHINOYA Tokyo, guests can do the same while enjoying a sweet sake parfait made with seasonal peach compote and edamame mousse. Sweet sake has a good balance of glucose and amino acid, and so people during Edo times would drink it to replenish nutrients and cool down their body.
3. New tea blends with Japanese and Chinese ingredients
Ice was a valuable resource during the Edo Period, and so it’s said that many people would drink hot drinks during the summer and cool off by sweating. Various ingredients were sold for making tea in the towns, such as loquat, liquorice, cinnamon, and more, which would be mixed together. Guests will be able to try making their own original tea blends.
Summer cooling was a big part of Edo culture and a way of life that was experienced using all of the senses, such as hanging chimes and ferns, observing goldfish, and more. This unique life can now be experienced at HOSHINOYA Tokyo this summer.

3D Phantom®: Experience 3D With the Naked Eye at Media Ambition Tokyo 2021
09.May.2021 | SPOT
Life is Style, a company that develops 3D holographic advertising signs, is set to showcase its new 3D Phantom® at Media Ambition Tokyo (MAT) which is taking place at Tokyo City View from May 12 to 23.
3D Phantom® is a 3D holographic display that uses LED lights on fast-spinning blades to create eye-popping 3D effects. At the event, the technology is set to transform the horizon that can be seen from the Roppongi Hills observations deck by forming light and images at the boundary between the land and sky.
Yoichi Ochiai (New Media Artist) | Comment
“My works are themed on change and transformation, visuals and materials, calculated nature and mass. I continue to attend MAT every year as I’m creating expression using media equipment. This time, I’ve endeavoured to create something that takes advantage of MAT’s location behind high above the city. I wondered what it would look like if I created something on the horizon that can be seen from the 52nd floor of Roppongi Hills, how I could change the horizon digitally to make it something more material. After searching to see if there was some kind of transparent display that would build on top of the horizon that not damage the beauty of the location, I came across 3D Phantom. With this technology, I believe I’ve been able to transform the view beautifully into one long line. Please see it for yourself.” (Translated from Japanese by MMN)

Go Diving in Fuji Five Lakes’ Lake Mototsu in Summer 2021
06.May.2021 | SPOT
This summer, glamping resort HOSHINOYA Fuji is offering guests a diving experience into the crystal clear Lake Mototsu, the third largest of the Fuji Five Lakes. The diving tour comes as a chance for people to reconnect with nature during the troubling COVID-19 times – to unwind and refresh.
A magical scene of lava, large trees, and freshwater fish
Lake Mototsu is one of Japan’s most popular freshwater diving spots. There are restrictions in place for for boats when riding across the beautiful lake, which shimmers crystal clear because of water welling rather than flowing. Divers will be able to spot lake prawns, tachysurus nudiceps, and other lake life which sprouted during the Jōgan eruption in 864. Lava poured from Mount Fuji and created a space for the lake to form. Other sights under the lake include towering trees standing silently over 10-meters in height, water spurting up from holes, and more.
An expert guide will take you to the diving spots

Water swells from the holes
Submerged trees sit silently
Divers will be taken on a tour by a well-versed guide with 21 years in the industry who will lead them to spots based on guests’ interests. The experience welcomes both beginner and veteran divers.

Peter Luger Steak House Opens First Japanese Branch at Ebisu Garden Place
Hailing originally from Brooklyn, the 130-year-old Peter Luger Steak House has announced the opening of its first-ever Japanese branch which will welcome customers at Ebisu Garden Place in Tokyo this September with its 3-storeys of red brick.
Peter Luger is credited with spreading the mouth-watering wonder of dry-aged beef steak to the world which has made the restaurant’s name globally famous. The restaurant of course wields a Michelin Star and has been featured high on the Zagat Survey for over 30 years.
The secret behind Peter Luger’s signature ingredient
The restaurant’s beef fillet and New York strip are signature items on the menu, both of which are made from porterhouse steak. Their steak is also made from USDA Prime beef which is dry-aged by hand to intensify the flavour and aroma.
The porterhouse is placed directly onto the broiler and seasoned solely with salt. The steak is flipped only once during the broiling process. A knob of melted butter is added to a serving platter and the steak is sliced atop it. It’s then placed back into the broiler for a few minutes depending on the doneness requested by the customer. It’s this process that gives Peter Luger’s steaks their deliciousness.
Brooklyn red brick building and theatre decor
The Japanese branch takes inspiration from the Brooklyn restaurant with its red brick exterior.
The first floor is home to the bar where customers can enjoy food and cocktails. There’s also a takeout shop with gifts and other items.
The second floor is the spacious dining space which is home to Peter Ruger’s first-ever open kitchen. The third floor is another seating area with balcony-like seats so you can look out over the city.
There are seven private dining rooms of varying sizes for those looking a little more intimacy and privacy. The restaurant’s lighting was also designed by a New York designer.
