Greetings from the General Manager

Dear patrons and friends,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued patronage.

I am pleased to announce that I have assumed the position of the 14th General Manager of the Imperial Hotel, Tokyo, as of April 1st, 2023.

The Imperial Hotel was established in 1890 as a state guesthouse and has continued to welcome guests for more than 130 years.

Now that the world has reaffirmed the value of being able to gather together after the adversity of the past few years, we feel the need to further evolve our hotel to become a place where all people, including our guests, can shine.

This year also marks the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Imperial Hotel's second main building (known as the Wright Building). We will continue to strive every day in line with Frank Lloyd Wright's sincere wish in mind, that as the hotel is in Japan, he wanted to make it one that is cherished by the Japanese people as well as by visitors from abroad.

We look forward to continuing to receive your continued warm guidance and support in our endeavors.

Most cordially yours,

Kazuhiko Yashima
Managing Director, Imperial Hotel, Ltd.
and General Manager, Imperial Hotel, Tokyo
