After a four-year renovation Tokyo’s Hotel Okura, which originally opened in 1962, has reopened as The Okura Tokyo, the new flagship of Hotel Okura Co., Ltd. 

The updated hotel has a total of 508 rooms across two buildings. The Okura Heritage Wing is a 17-story structure with its own reception area, a traditional Japanese restaurant and a dedicated room for tea ceremonies. The Okura Prestige Tower is a 41-story building, where guestrooms begin on the 28th floor. The top floor has a teppanyaki restaurant, an all-day dining restaurant and a Chinese restaurant. The tower also has event and banquet facilities, reportedly including one of the largest hotel ballrooms in Tokyo, and access to the Okura Fitness & Spa on the 26th and 27th floors.
