◇ Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa Bamboo Light Production

In spring, about 210 cherry trees of 17 varieties are in full bloom, and Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa, which has a Japanese garden of about 20,000 square meters despite being in the center of the city, will celebrate its 70th anniversary this November.
It has been loved by many people for many years as a hotel that values history and culture, such as the Kihinkan, the residence of the former imperial family that has been around for over 100 years, the Japanese garden, and historical assets.
During the Edo period, in Takanawa, there was an event to wait for the moon to come out and pray on the night of the 26th of January and July of the lunar calendar. In Takanawa, which has a great view, many people gathered and enjoyed eating and drinking at food stalls while waiting for the moon.
This time, “Takanawa Nijyurokuya”, which is a modern version of the moon-waiting culture, is expressed with bamboo lights that evoke the elegant Japanese culture.
A wave design that recreates the moon waiting for it to emerge from the sea, and a black bamboo design that harmonizes with the historic building designated as a tangible cultural property of Minato Ward. You can enjoy a fantastic Japanese garden illuminated by more than 400 bamboo lights, including a design inspired by the four seasons of the Japanese garden.
In the future, we will hold workshops, etc., and create memorable moments while inheriting Japanese culture from the past in the changing times.

◇ Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo bamboo light production and related products Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo celebrates its 70th anniversary in November 2022. The land around the hotel has been called “Tsubakiyama” since the period of the Northern and Southern Dynasties, and is a scenic spot. In the garden that has been handed down for about 145 years, you can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the seven seasons, including the largest fog garden production in Japan, “Tokyo Sea of Clouds”. When the garden and residence were built in 1878, Duke Aritomo was proud of the scenery of Tokachi. The atmosphere remains as “Firefly swamp”. The bamboo production, which leaves the remnants of the bamboo grove, transcends time and delivers a gentle landscape unique to Japan.
From the fresh green of sprouts to the summer season, we will be holding bamboo lights this time in the season when it is pleasant to stroll around the garden at night. About 40 bamboo lanterns and about 14 bamboo balls are decorated in the area of about 25 meters from Choshu Falls to Kishundo in the garden. In addition, you can enjoy bamboo ball decorations in the camellia moss garden area behind the three-storied pagoda and in the hanging garden on the 5th floor of the hotel.
In addition, we will sell the original design “Bamboo Akari Lampshade” featuring the hotel symbol “Camellia” at the hotel shop and online shop so that you can enjoy the gentle light at home.
