Christmas at Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo | Celebrate the Holidays at an Urban Oasis

The holiday season is a time to be with our dear ones. A thoughtful gift or the precious moments spent together are ways to remind our loved ones how much we care for them. If you’re in Tokyo this holiday season, why not visit Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo? 

The magical Christmas atmosphere that can be enjoyed here is enhanced by the Tokyo Sea of Clouds and the Forest Aurora shown several times a day in the garden. We introduce some of the features that make Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo the ideal destination during the holiday season.


Festive Decorations and Lights Throughout the Hotel

The entrance and lobby of Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo welcome visitors and guests with beautiful holiday decorations. The magnificent Christmas tree and impressive 170-cm wreath in the lobby are sure to bring back nostalgic childhood memories. The holiday atmosphere is further enhanced by the mini diorama in the center of the lobby, complete with moving trains and a Ferris wheel. Each corner will inspire you to take photos. 

Meet Santa! Special Accommodation Plans

In addition to the regular accommodation plans that are available throughout the year, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo offers a series of special plans for the holiday season.


Christmas Stay with Santa is a plan that we recommend especially, though not exclusively, to guests who want to surprise their children for Christmas. This plan includes a meeting with Santa Claus in the hotel chapel, a present from him, and a commemorative photo. (*The gift should be prepared in advance and left at the hotel until the day of the meeting with Santa.)


For those interested in booking this plan, please call us at +81 3 3943-0996 or email us here. Please note that given that this is a very popular holiday stay plan, there may be limited availability.

Merry Atmosphere! Year End Dinner Buffet

The Year-End Dinner Buffet is a special event that can be enjoyed by both visitors and staying guests. The extensive menu features dishes from Japanese, Western, and Chinese cuisines. Some of the dishes are cooked on the spot by the hotel’s chefs; their performance adds an element of entertainment  to the event.

The magnificent Forest Aurora and the Tokyo Sea of Clouds are shown in Chinzanso Garden in the evening hours. Turn your visit into a truly special event by enjoying the garden views along with the Year-End Dinner Buffet.
