Bulgari Hotels & Resorts and real estate company Mitsui Fudosan have signed an agreement to open a new hotel in Tokyo in late 2022. The jewelry brand already has two restaurants in Tokyo and Osaka.

Japan's first Bulgari Hotel will be developed as part of a mixed-use development on floors 39 to 45 of a skyscraper within the Yaesu 2-Chome North District Category-I Urban Redevelopment Plan. Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel will design the 95-guestroom property, which will be near the Imperial Palace, the Nihombashi and Ginza shopping centers and the Nihombashi and Marunouchi financial districts. 

The upcoming Tokyo hotel will be Bulgari's fourth hotel in Asia-Pacific. The company already has hotels in Bali and Beijing, which opened last year in the center of the Embassy District. An additional hotel is slated to open this year in Shanghai. The new Bugari Hotel Shanghai will be developed in the top 12 floors of a new 40-story tower, designed by London-based architectural firm Foster+Partners. The 120-room hotel on a bank of Suzhou Creek is near the Huangpu River and The Bund.
