Westin Tokyo Golden Week bus tour

For the Golden Week holidays, The Westin Tokyo in Yebisu Garden Place is offering a special accommodation plan that includes an open-air night bus tour of Tokyo.

In cooperation with Sky Bus Tokyo, the hotel has prepared an original course for the bus tour during the long holiday season. The Sky Bus Tokyo will depart from the hotel at 8 p.m. and travel to several spots in Tokyo, such as Tokyo Tower, Roppongi, Omotesando and Shibuya, so guests can enjoy splendid night views from the double-decker bus.

The plan also includes a breakfast buffet at The Terrace on the first floor of the hotel.

The tour is available on April 28, 29 and May 5. In case of inclement weather, the hotel will offer its original amenity pouch to guests instead.

The plan is available from ¥36,000 per room including tax and a service charge, but subject to the Tokyo accommodation tax.

The Westin Tokyo is in Yebisu Garden Place, about a 7-minute walk from Ebisu Station. For more information and reservations, call (03) 5423-7770 or visit

Mix-and-match party plan in Tokyo

IL Casita, the Casita group’s pasta dining establishment in the Akasaka district of Tokyo, is offering a seasonal Welcome Party Plan.

In Japan, April is the start of spring, the beginning of the school year and a time when many graduates start a career — all reasons for celebration.

The Welcome Party Plan is made to be flexible to fit customers’ needs. The plan is available for parties of four or more with three levels of meal plans offered. These plans can be combined with one of three grades of all-you-can-drink plans. (Upon request, IL Casita may accommodate groups of fewer than four people.)

Meal plans are available at ¥3,000, ¥4,000 and ¥5,000, and the drink plans are available at ¥2,000, ¥3,000 and ¥4,000. For example, a group that doesn’t drink much and doesn’t need many beverage choices, but would like to try more food options, can combine the ¥2,000 drink plan with the ¥5,000 meal plan.

The prices are per person and include tax, but are subject to a 10 percent service charge. The restaurant is closed on Sundays.

The plan is available through May 5, the end of Golden Week, so guests can have a party with colleagues, friends or family.

IL Casita is a 2-minute walk from Akasaka Station on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line or a 5-minute walk from Akasaka-mitsuke Station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza and Marunouchi lines. For more information and reservations, call (03) 5572-6655 or visit
