Tokyo, Japan, August 3, 2020 — Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, and Mitsui Fudosan Hotel Management Co., Ltd. announced today that Mitsui Hotel Toyosu BAYSIDE CROSS (2-2-1, Toyosu, Koto-ku, Tokyo; guestrooms: 225) will open for business on August 10, 2020 (Monday). Its opening had been postponed from initial plans to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
The hotel will be launched on floors 33 to 36 in the upper levels of Toyosu Bayside Cross Tower, a large-scale mixed-use facility created as part of the redevelopment of Toyosu 2-chome, in which Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. is a participant. Located approximately 10 minutes from the Ginza area and 15 minutes from Tokyo Station, with an adjacent bus stop for the Limousine Bus connecting Haneda and Narita airports and the Toei Bus service, the hotel is in an outstanding site that also offers the convenience of a direct connection with Toyosu Station on the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line and Yurikamome Line. There are numerous popular sightseeing spots in the vicinity, including Toyosu Market, and the hotel has direct connections to the adjacent large-scale retail property, Mitsui Shopping Park Urban Dock LaLaport TOYOSU.
From its elevation of 165 m from ground level, the hotel offers an ethereal space surrounded by the sky and sea, while being in the heart of the city. Created with a design concept of “Tokyo Floating Journey,” the space deliberately emphasizes the sky as the main feature of the view. In the lobby, restaurant, large bath and other shared spaces, guests will experience a sense of the wide open sky and sea, while the guestrooms offer an opportunity to enjoy a different view for each room. Furthermore, with different water side and water surface motifs on each floor, the hotel recreates the sense of a journey from the bottom of the sea up to the sky.
The guestrooms cater to diverse needs from business to family, or groups of three friends. The “View Bathrooms” offer views of Tokyo Bay or the city by night, making them perfect for important occasions such as anniversaries.
On the 36th floor, the highest floor, an Italian restaurant, “THE PENTHOUSE with weekend terrace,” will open, offering dishes using fresh ingredients from Toyosu Market. The live feeling of the open kitchen coupled with panoramic views of Tokyo Bay from the large windows create a special time for guests. Semi-private rooms with a relaxed feel and wide-open terrace seating are also available, allowing guests to use the restaurant as the occasion demands.
The hotel is extremely close to the center of the city, approximately 3 km in a straight line from the Ginza area and approximately 4 km from Tokyo Station, with excellent access to transport, connecting directly to Toyosu Station on the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line and the Yurikamome Line. Furthermore, a Limousine Bus can be taken from the adjacent bus terminal, offering access to Haneda Airport in approximately 20 minutes or Narita Airport in approximately 70 minutes. The hotel is thus perfectly situated as a base for activities for both Japanese and overseas guests. There are numerous popular sightseeing spots in the vicinity, such as Toyosu Market, and the hotel connects directly to a large-scale retail property, Mitsui Shopping Park Urban Dock LaLaport TOYOSU. The location therefore offers easy access to sightseeing spots around Toyosu, as well as a useful base for sightseeing in Tokyo.
Urban Dock LaLaport TOYOSU
The hotel spaces celebrate the view from the 165 m elevation as the main feature, with a water motif symbolizing the Toyosu bayside area present throughout. To reflect the Toyosu area’s local history as a shipbuilding area, the entire interior of the hotel presents a story of an ocean voyage. Passing through the basement floor and first floor hotel entrance, which recreate “under the sea” and “rising to the surface”, guests reach the 36th floor lobby where they started their individual “sky voyage.” Guests are greeted by the panoramic view of Tokyo Bay, which forms a suitable scene for the embarkation point for their “voyage.”

The first basement floor entrance connects directly to Toyosu Station and is modeled on the theme of “under the sea.” Designed with an image of the bottom of the sea in mind, the entrance features glass art with rising bubbles. A soft light such as might be found filtering down to the bottom of the sea leads guests into a shuttle elevator hall. This space is also directly connected with the retail property, so that the undersea-based design gives the impression of leading to a different world and builds a sense of anticipation about the hotel.
The theme for the first floor entrance is “rising to the surface” from under the sea onto the land. Art lighting using glass expresses the appearance of breaking through from under the water up to the surface. The light and shadow reflected on the ceiling and floor and the glass carving in the elevator half recall the Toyosu seaside at night.
The theme of the lobby is “sky voyage.” As visitors follow the long approach from the elevator hall, they are greeted by the expansive water views over Tokyo Bay and the skyscrapers of the central city. The design aims to give guests the full experience of the sea of Toyosu stretching out before them and the powerful sense of expansiveness created by the sky. A monotone color scheme sets off the scenery and views from the windows.
A large bath facing the seaward side offers both indoor and outdoor bathing facilities. Guests can enjoy views over Tokyo Bay from the outdoor baths, while feeling the pleasant sea breeze, the beautiful scenery helping to remove the fatigue of travel.
< Operating hours > 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM, 3:00 PM to 1:00 AM (planned) *For overnight guests only *The number of people that may use the large bath is partially limited as an infectious disease prevention measure. Depending on the situation going forward, the bath’s operating hours may change, so please check the hotel’s website for the latest information.
On the 3rd floor is center garden designed with curved lines and undulations with the sea as a motif, offering guests the enjoyment of greenery, even when high up in the building. Pebbles represent the glistening of the water surface and trees of different heights suggest gentle waves. The garden presents a soothing scene, while the nighttime illumination creates a dream-like atmosphere.
There are 12 types of guestrooms in all, with a total of 225 rooms, each large enough to accommodate two or more guests. The rooms take the theme of “anchorage,” offering a space for slowly relaxing while enjoying the view. The rooms are made up in two different styles, one an urban resort design with muted blue accents and the motif of sky, sea, and water surface, and the other with an interior design featuring sharp edges that represent the city.
The “View Bathroom,” offers expansive views of Tokyo Bay, making these special guestrooms a perfect choice for an important occasion such as an anniversary.
