April 1,2019, Tokyo — Today, Bear Luxe Japan (BLJ), a network of luxury travel designers and suppliers operating in Japan, announced that the historic The Capitol Hotel Tokyu has joined their consortium, offering luxury accommodation and experience-driven stays in central Tokyo.

The Capitol Hotel Tokyu is one of the landmarks of Japan’s hotel industry, with an illustrious heritage dating back to 1963. It is adored by VIPs both at home and abroad for its exceptional service and discretion. Reimagined by leading Japanese architect Kengo Kuma in 2010, The Capitol Hotel Tokyu has a refined architectural style and interior design that creates an atmosphere perfect for relaxation, whether travelling to Tokyo for business or leisure. Multiple in-house dining options, a state-of-the-art gym and pool, and full-service spa round out the facilities.

The club floors and suites, renovated in 2018, boast the Capitol's unique blend of minimalist modern style and the traditional feel of a Japanese ryokaninn, in addition to dazzling views of downtown Tokyo. Meanwhile, the club lounge provides an expansive space for relaxation or business, with thoughtful local touches such as an original blend of exclusive Mi Cafeto coffee served in Fukagawa Seiji Arita porcelain artisan cups, official purveyors of the Imperial Household, and a dedicated tea corner offering nourishing Japanese green tea.

Located a stone’s throw from the iconic Imperial Palace in the entertainment district of Akasaka, The Capitol Hotel Tokyu provides excellent access the neighboring political center of Nagatacho and the shopping and dining hotspots of Marunouchi and Ginza, as well as an array of easy public transportation options.

General Manager, Mr. Takahiro Sueyoshi of The Capitol Hotel Tokyu said, “It is a great honor to become a member of Bear Luxe Japan network. The Capitol Hotel Tokyu is one of the landmarks of Japan incorporating traditional Japanese-style architectural design and refined elegance. Our promise towell-versed international travelers is an exceptional time of relaxation.”

The move adds 237 rooms and 14 suites to BLJ's accommodation offerings in Tokyo, as well as access to unique experiences only available from The Capitol Hotel Tokyu, such as a geisha-led dinner at a historic restaurant in Akasaka and behind-the-scenes access to Shinto ceremonies at neighboring Hie Shrine.

BLJ co-founder and COO Hiroyuki Miyatake said, "We are honored to welcome The Capitol Hotel Tokyu to our network of luxury travel designers and suppliers as the first Japanese luxury hotel member in Tokyo. Given their level of service and uniquely Japanese aesthetic, member buyers will have access to a new layer of irreplaceable travel experiences that define BLJ with guaranteed commission and unique amenities."
