■Features of the Mitsui Garden Hotel Jingugaien Tokyo Premier
1．Close proximity to the New National Stadium and surrounded by the rich greenery of Jingu Gaien and Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden
This hotel located just 1 minute on foot from the New National Stadium is in a rare area of Tokyo, right in the city center yet surrounded by nature with the rich greenery of Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, Meiji Jingu Shrine and Yoyogi Park while Jingu Gaien is adjacent. Guests can enjoy a luxuriant stay in the heart of the capital while enjoying such activities as jogging in the Jingu Gaien area, strolling through Meiji Jingu Shrine and Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, visiting art galleries or night cruising in Shinjuku.
The New National Stadium rises immediately in front of the rooftop terrace, and one of the pleasures of the hotel is the superb views in the directions of Shibuya and Roppongi. Moreover, the intensity of the Jingu Gaien Fireworks held every August can be viewed up close from guest room balconies and, of course, the rooftop terrace.

2．Designed to blend and harmonize with the New National Stadium exterior and Jingu Gaien
(1) The hotel built under a concept of an “urban center to clear the mind”
Under a concept of being a space to forget the hustle and bustle of the city center and taking time to “clear the mind,” with designs to put the heart at ease, many natural materials suiting the atmosphere of Jingu Gaien have been used both inside and out, as well as architecture with an awareness of connecting with the outdoors. The hotel interior is decorated with artworks in the motif of the nature spread throughout Jingu Gaien, creating a pleasant atmosphere resembling that of a villa used for relaxing.
The exterior of the hotel incorporates beautiful rounded edges and curves based on Japanese cultural items such as bows, bowls, swords and the top rails of torii (shrine gates). In addition to the rounded edges and curves, the hotel has been designed to blend and harmonize with the greenery and formation of New National Stadium exterior and Jingu Gaien. With all rooms having a balcony, the deep latticework creates beautiful shadows and gives the exterior a modern expression.

(3) Reception lobby (1F)
Passing through the entrance leads to the reception lobby, an open area stretching out across more than 200 m2 crafted with a tone of stone and wood. The spacious lobby has an interior of warmth adorned with artwork, providing guests with a welcoming atmosphere resembling an art gallery. Each of the artworks falls under one of the themes of “forest = past,” “water = present” or “light = future,” expressing the idea of the Jingu Gaien forest connecting the past to the future. In homage to the rich array of cycling courses surrounding the hotel, a road bike from the venerated Italian bicycle manufacturer Bianchi is displayed as a work of art in the lobby.

(4) Large public bath (2F)
Built on the former site of the Meiji Jingu Gaien swimming pool, the hotel’s large public bath continues the site’s association with soaking in water.

Panels chronicling the pool have been installed on the walls, enabling guests to soak away the fatigue of their travels while surrounded by history.

4. Dialogue in the Dark, a social entertainment conducted in the dark, opens a new, hands on facility to ponder over inner beauty and readiness for darkness
The Dialogue Japan Society will open a permanent Dialogue in the Dark facility at the hotel. Dr. Andreas Heinecke from Germany founded Dialogue in the Dark in 1988. It is a hands-on event where people who are visually impaired undergo special training and then engage in dialogue while attending to participants in experiential events.
The new facility, where participants will ponder over inner beauty and readiness for darkness, will use mindfulness based on Zen philosophy to feel nature and the Japanese culture in various scenes that could only be experienced in Jingu Gaien. Participants will awaken all five of their senses, sharpen their somatic perception, and enhance their hidden inner beauty. This Dialogue in the Dark goes a step beyond its predecessors by being a luxurious facility for adults.
