Photographer's Note

The Peninsula Hotel in Tokyo opened on 1st September, 2007.
The Peninsula Tokyo, stands 24 storeys high and is superbly located in the fashionable district of Ginza.
Architect, designers and sculptors worked well together to achieve something very special for The Peninsula Tokyo. Architect Kazukiyo Sato had a vision of The Peninsula Tokyo as a traditional Japanese lantern at the entrance of Marunouchi and Ginza districts. To complement this, well known Japanese designer Keisen Hama has created a magnificent bamboo masterpiece in the heart of the lobby. The enclosed atrium soars to 70 metres and from the 8th to the 23rd floors, three windows on each floor provide glimpses of a specially commissioned sculpture created by international artists Ben Jakover and Yannick Yu.
Rooms are among the city’s largest and have stunning views of the Tokyo skyline, the Imperial Gardens and Hibiya Park. All guest-rooms and suites boast with ultra modern furnishings and a style inspired by Japanese heritage and culture.
