TOKYO -The Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo(KPH), one of Japan's most prestigious international hotels located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, will host a special event to celebrate the arrival of spring and the “Sakura” cherry blossoms with special menu items prepared in the theme of cherry blossoms by our executive chefs to be served at eight restaurants including our French, Chinese, Japanese Kaiseki, Japanese Teppan-yaki and other restaurants between March 1 (Sunday) to April 30 (Thursday), 2020. In addition to blooming of the cherry blossoms, spring also represents a busy season for the Keio Plaza Hotel with many people celebrating various events such as school entrance and graduation, and start of new jobs by graduating students. Consequently, our sommeliers will serve specially selected champagnes and wines, and our patissier chefs will prepare special cakes in the theme of cherry blossoms adorned with message cards for our guests to celebrate this commemorative season.
During this event, various beautiful flower art arrangements created by the renowned Japanese “Ikebana” flower arrangement artist Hiroki Maeno will be displayed in the third floor lobby and the second restaurant floor corridor areas of our Hotel. Large numbers of visitors from overseas travel to Japan during the spring season to see the beautiful cherry blossoms. And because the cherry blossoms only remain in bloom for a short period of about one week, the special foods and flower arrangements of our event are designed to prolong the period in which guests can enjoy the cherry blossoms. A magnificent large flower arrangement will be displayed in the third floor main lobby to provide guests with an ideal location to take commemorative photographs.
In our All Day Dining “Jurin” Restaurant, NAKED Inc., a human experience, space design and creative production company, will participate in this spring event by creating a new projection mapping video to be shown along with specially prepared foods and drinks. The new video will reflect the fleeting moment and delicacy of the cherry blossoms and spring through song and dance. Also, our “Jurin” Restaurant will be decorated in shades of pink to reflect the cherry blossoms, and an art tree adorned with real cherry blossoms and other spring vegetation will be displayed to complement the special foods and video projection mapping.
Delicious French foods using colorful and delicate vegetables, and Japanese foods using cherry blossoms and fresh seasonal food items that symbolically represent good luck of spring will be served at our restaurants.
