Updated:3 months, 2 weeks ago IST

Tokyo (Japan), Jul 05 (ANI): While the number of tourists from overseas visiting Japan grows every year, the hotel industry is required to provide suitable and improved services for guests. Hotel Okura, which is a luxury grand hotel recognized by travelers as one of the world's top hotels announced the much-anticipated opening of The Okura Tokyo in early September of 2019, replacing the highly reputable but aging Hotel Okura Tokyo. The construction work of the new wing of Hotel Okura is progressing well. There is just a year left until new main building “The Okura Tokyo” is to be completed. Tohoku earthquake in 2011 was one of the reasons that lead to start rebuilding. It was decided that rebuilding the hotel in order to improve seismic and vibration control was to be put as a high priority in order to ensure safety and security. It also includes aspects of aging of buildings and expecting an increase in the number of international guests visiting for 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Okura Tokyo will reprise the former Hotel Okura Tokyo’s famed traditional Japanese beauty as well as its cherished simplicity and elegance which aims to offer a new combination of “traditional luxury” and “contemporary luxury.” The concept of The Okura Tokyo is that of renewing the latest facilities and functions while inheriting traditional beauty of Japan found in old building. Japan's traditional hospitality will continue to be protected and passed onto next generations as a part of renewing and expanding hospitality services.
