About Imperial Hotel in Tokyo
Tokyo's Imperial Hotel was established in 1890 under the direction of the Meiji Government as the nation's first semi-official state guesthouse to receive an increasing number of foreign dignitaries visiting Japan in the Meiji Period (1868-1912). From its very first days, the Imperial set the stage for the introduction into Japan of the latest in foreign technologies, culture and traditions of hospitality, deftly combined with its own. The hotel also pioneered many new services and facilities which have since become standard at major Japanese hotels, such as wedding services, shopping arcades and in-house laundry service, and introduced diverse Western cuisine to the Japanese public. For its range of classical Japanese hospitality, it is the traditional favorite of dignitaries and celebrities from abroad visiting the Japanese capital. The hotel was the scene of many events and trends which in part echo the very history of modern Japan. Today's Main Building opened in 1970, with The Imperial Tower following in 1983. The Imperial Hotel, Tokyo, now houses 931 rooms and 56 suites, 17 restaurants and bars, 27 banquet rooms and two elegant shopping arcades.
