The Okura Tokyo will offer 20 banquet rooms, all in The Okura Prestige
Tower, ranging in size from large event and reception spaces to smaller
rooms ideal for intimate parties. The Heian Room—one of the largest
ballrooms and event spaces of any hotel in Tokyo—will re-establish The
Okura Tokyo as a premier venue for prestigious international conferences.

The Heian
Room
will be reborn on the first floor of The Okura Prestige Tower.
The original Heian Room was a large, elegant Japanese-style facility
with an illustrious history as a glamorous reception room hosting
royalty and heads of state. It was also the venue for prestigious
international conferences such as the International Monetary Fund
General Assembly.

The Heian Room will span 2,000 square meters and will be able to
accommodate up to 2,000 guests for standing-style events. There will be
the option to combine it with the adjacent foyer and other banquet halls
to create a flexible 3,000 sq m function area. This can be sectioned
into multiple spaces to accommodate a variety of needs. Its Heian era
features will include white wooden panels, large reproductions from the
Kokin Wakashu poetry anthology preface (on display in the neighboring
Okura Museum of Art), Heian era door designs and Shosoin pattern
carpeting. The beauty of ancient Japan will be captured on a grand scale
in an elegant and practical way.

The second floor of The Okura Prestige Tower will contain the "Orchard"
banquet hall—the hotel's second-largest—as well as a number of meeting
and function rooms, all featuring European garden themes. Around half of
The Okura Tokyo site will be covered with a variety of lush gardens and
greenery, views of which guests will be able to enjoy from the lobby
throughout the seasons.

On the 41st floor of The Okura Prestige Tower, a
comprehensive range of meeting and function rooms will take full
advantage of their top floor locations to provide breathtaking views
across Tokyo. They will include L'Étoile,
adorned with galaxy-motif chandeliers, the modern-classic
design-inspired La
Lune
, and Le
Soleil
, featuring a variety of wood textures, all based on urban and
celestial themes.

Masaki Ikeda, President and General Manager of Hotel Okura Tokyo, said,
"Since its original opening, Hotel Okura Tokyo has hosted many notable
guests and events from around the world, including heads of state and
leading global organizations. In the newly reborn The Okura Tokyo, we
look forward again to welcoming guests from around the world with our
signature blend of traditional Japanese culture and sophisticated
service."

The Okura Tokyo is located in one of Tokyo's main business areas,
surrounded by government offices and embassies and offering easy access
to shopping areas such as Ginza.

The Okura Tokyo will be a top-end luxury hotel with a tasteful,
classically Japanese atmosphere. The beloved Yamazato Japanese
restaurant will make its awaited return, as will the renowned Chosho-an
tea ceremony room, making the reborn hotel the perfect choice for
special gatherings in elegant Japanese settings.
