Hotel based on the concept of Chanoyu

Agora Tokyo Ginza(Ginza, Tokyo)

Agora Tokyo Ginza is a city hotel located in the heart of Tokyo’s Ginza district, which opened its doors in April 2021. Operating under the vision of a Hotel Alliance that Gathers Beautiful Japan, it is one of the accommodations within the Agora Hotel Alliance, which has establishments in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and various other locations across Japan.

Positioned just a 2-minute walk from Tokyo Metro Higashi-Ginza Station and adjacent to the famous Kabuki-za theater, the hotel’s prime location makes it an ideal base for both sightseeing and business endeavors.

Welcoming guests with the spirit of Chanoyu

The concept behind Agora Tokyo Ginza is to welcome guests with the spirit of Chanoyu, the Japanese tea ceremony, inspired by the elegant and refined aesthetic unique to Tokyo. This concept aims to offer a lodging experience that encapsulates Tokyo’s sophisticated sense of beauty.

The hotel’s reception counter, boldly designed with a hinoki cypress from floor to ceiling, immediately captures attention. Displayed there are iconic tea ceremony items, including a tea kettle, matcha bowls, and utensils, creating an ambiance reminiscent of a traditional tea ceremony setting. The wall mural depicting indigo dyeing also adds an extra layer of visual appeal.

Tea time in a fine lounge

Upon arrival, guests at Agora Tokyo Ginza are welcomed with a Tokyo Sayama Tea as part of their experience. This tea hails from Mizuho Town in the northern Tama region of Tokyo and is produced using traditional methods.

On the first floor, the Ichie Lounge offers a variety of coffee and tea beverages. The lounge features dedicated staff who prepare authentic matcha using specialized teapots and utensils, allowing guests to savor the essence of the Japanese tea ceremony.

The matcha used in the lounge is sourced from a rare variety grown in Tokyo, similar to the Sayama tea used for the welcome drink, both cultivated in the Mizuho Town of Tokyo.

The Ichie Lounge serves as an ideal workspace during the stay, equipped with tables that feature power outlets, accommodating guests for laptop work or meetings in comfort. Additionally, the lounge is open to both hotel guests and the general public.

Promise a pleasant stay

The guest rooms, totaling 97, embody a simple yet serene Japanese-modern aesthetic. The “Deluxe Twin” room, for example, infuses delicate Japanese elements into a contemporary living space.

The Executive Twin room boasts spacious flooring bathed in natural light, ensuring a comfortable stay experience.

The 12th floor offers an exclusive outdoor lounge for hotel guests, where they can enjoy catered meals and drinks in an open-air atmosphere.

Near the entrance on the first floor, a map named Machigokoro Map, centered around the Ginza district, is available. This map provides recommended information and highlights from both hotel staff and guests, serving as a space for information exchange.

Recommended for both sightseeing and business trips, Agora Tokyo Ginza promises to be a source of delight for foreign tourists visiting Tokyo. Experience the high-quality hospitality infused with the spirit of Chanoyu and the aesthetic essence unique to Tokyo.
