■Features of Mitsui Garden Hotel Roppongi Tokyo Premier
1．A highly convenient location near Roppongi and Roppongi-itchome Stations at the heart of cosmopolitan Roppongi
The hotel is located in the heart of Roppongi, a district with large-scale, multi-use facilities such as Tokyo Midtown and Roppongi Hills as well as many embassies and office buildings where foreign companies are based. It is also conveniently located for public transport, near Roppongi and Roppongi-itchome Stations—an optimal base for domestic and international travelers visiting for business and leisure.

(1) Hotel concept is “Superb Experience: Have an exciting time in Roppongi”
Mitsui Garden Hotel Roppongi Tokyo Premier debuts as a sophisticated hotel that welcomes guests with a flamboyant design that offers an otherworldly experience and a refined, relaxing space. A team of Japanese architects, artists, and designers who are popular overseas collaborated to create a design that combines the glitz of the cosmopolitan Roppongi district of Tokyo with Japanese style and aesthetics. Guests can relax in this space and enjoy the attentive hotel service with every comfort in mind.
Jun Mitsui & Associates Inc. Architects was selected for the exterior architectural and façade design. Traditional Japanese style and values, in the form of prayer-themed décor such as yosegi-zukuri (a traditional Japanese woodwork technique), origami, and folding screens, are conveyed to overseas visitors. The vivid exterior is not overshadowed by the cosmopolitan cityscape of Roppongi, and the delicacy of light and shade created by the prayer theme changes with the time of day. With these qualities, the building has a presence that makes it a distinctive landmark in the neighborhood.

(3) Exterior plantings
Large spaces for plantings were secured on the perimeter of the site and in front of the main entrance, and cherry trees and Japanese maples were chosen as symbol trees. Colorful trees that express the four seasons create a green, shady oasis that contrasts the hustle and bustle of Roppongi, providing guests and passersby with a welcome dose of nature therapy.

(4) Lobby and lounge (1F)
Past the main entrance, a comfortable and spacious lobby with a two-story atrium welcomes arriving guests. The giant fabric art hung in the atrium was created by internationally renowned textile designer Akane Moriyama of Studio Akane Moriyama. The ultra-fine fabric with aluminum coating is draped in multiple layers, changing color and hue depending on the viewing angle and light. Transforming with the weather and time of day, its languid movement caused by the air conditioning system helps guests to slow down, relax, and calm their minds.
Works of art are exhibited like a museum throughout the hotel, in the lobby, hallways and guest rooms. Inspired by traditional Japanese techniques and materials, and the history and the glamorous poise of Roppongi, distinctive art works with diverse materials, textures, and styles of expression accent the interior, upgrading the guest experience into something special.

(6) Guest rooms (2F–13F)
NOMURA Co., Ltd. undertook guest room design, while Keita Aono, representative of onndo (currently one of the most sought-after design offices) acted as chief designer. Guests can enjoy an elegant, charming, and hospitable space that expresses the glamorous poise of Roppongi through indirect lighting and the luster of materials used, while incorporating Japanese style. The unit bath has an open feel with the use of a glass screen, large tiles create a luxury interior, and a separate washbasin in the bedroom combines opulent design with functionality.
