■ Riviera Tokyo’s 70th anniversary history
Founder Asoe Horie opened a firewood charcoal wholesaler, Fukushimaya, which is the origin of the Riviera Tokyo in 1929.
In 1943, it grew into a firewood charcoal wholesaler counted among five large fuel factories, 400 employees and five fingers in the Johoku district. In the 1945 (Showa 20) witnessing the fight between food and the post-war food, the occupational view changed by 180 degrees, and the fuel industry, which has largely expanded its business to “food and drink”, is indispensable to human life In order to secure a building suitable for a restaurant, it decided to convert to a restaurant business, and at that time it relocated a 240-tsubo 2-storey total cypress-built old royal palace found in Kamisuwa in Nagano Prefecture in order to secure a building suitable for a restaurant. In 1949 (Showa 24), a restaurant “Shiraunkaku” opened. Named Baiakukaku Tower “Hakuunkaku” from the appearance of Mt. About a quarter of the current area. Official registration on January 23, 1950 (Showa 25).
The 240-tsubo palace “Shiraunkaku” that appeared in the burnt fields and Barraque Ikebukuro quickly gained a reputation, and customers from not only Ikebukuro, but also Asakusa and Nihonbashi flourished, and it was a great success. In 1953, great writers Ranpo Edogawa and Minister of Finance Ogasawara also held banquets, always favoring them. In addition to general banquets in 1954, banquets for ceremonial occasions (marriage and devotion) also became popular, and the new building opened. The old building of 240 tsubo was almost completely destroyed by the fire in December. In 1956 (Showa 31), it struggled for reconstruction and expanded to 1,500 tsubo. The restaurant is re-opened as a 32-storey restaurant with large and small rooms including a large hall with a waterfall and garden. He continued to prosper with staff of 150 Nakai and maids and 50 men.
1957 (Showa 32) arrives under the Takamatsu palace. 1980 (Showa 55) Switch from Japanese cuisine to “kaiseki cuisine”. Held a “Kaisei Kaiseki” event to promote a new food culture. (Holded every year until 2018) In 1986, the hall was renovated as Japan’s first flooring banquet and became explosive. In the 1987 era, the economy was in a bubble economy and the number of guests at various banquets increased. The idea of the “original wedding”, which also led the “color wedding” ceremony at the forefront of the wedding and earnestly confronted the voice of customers seeking their own identity, gained popularity. After that, we will continue to propose to the customer ahead of the times, such as “total coordination” and “theme wedding,” and will be able to receive the evaluation of “wedding riviera”. Every year, taking advantage of the summer holidays, pioneering renovations and reinforcement of wooden skeletons have continued to this day. “Continue to pursue better change while preserving tradition” is the style of Shiraunkaku, following the Riviera today. The Riviera is stubborn in that it leaves the good old in the future. But the essence of what the Riviera wants to protect is the excitement of its customers. To protect the essence, I am willing to change my response flexibly. Before being a banquet hall as a hako with splendid facilities, it must be a restaurant where you can taste delicious things to your heart’s content. That is the essence of Shirounkaku, which is now being carried over to the Riviera Tokyo. Even if the philosophy changes its name as Riviera Tokyo, it does not shake up. Surely, the future will come.
We have been here in Ikebukuro for 70 years and have been doing business with the Riviera Tokyo, connecting the foundations of the founder who has continued to create and protect the White Cloud Pavilion. That is because it is accepted by the local people, supported by businessmen who have a strong personality, and customers’ patronage.
70th anniversary thanks to you.
