TOKYO, December 2, 2019 (Newswire) -​​Long before concept-driven boutique hotels began to boom globally, one hotel in Tokyo was already forging its own unique path with art and culture at its core. Meguro Gajoen began as a renowned dining and entertainment destination before expanding to become the first integrated wedding hall in Japan, and ultimately one of the most lavish hotels.

History and Art

Built in 1928 on the site of the former suburban villa and gardens of the Hosokawa Clan, Gajoen was already primed as a destination for traditional Japanese culture and luxury. Working with some of the best artists and craftsmen of the time, founder Rikizo Hosokawa commissioned thousands of pieces of art over the years as the resort expanded and evolved. The aristocratic design aesthetic of miyabi was central to the concept of Gajoen, bringing classic elegance and beauty to the public who soon dubbed the complex "The Palace of the Dragon King". When Gajoen was renovated in the 1990s, much of the art was preserved and can still be seen today throughout the halls and rooms. This includes the fully preserved wing of the Hyakudan Kaidan (The Hundred Stairs), which features on the art tours and special art exhibitions for guests and visitors.
