Mount Fuji-themed rooms in the heart of the city

The Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel in Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward has opened a new junior suite room that has a motif of Mount Fuji.

With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics approaching, the room on the 35th floor was created to cater to foreign tourists who want an especially memorable stay.

The Cerulean Tower Tokyu began renovations of the junior suite rooms in 2014 and reopened them to the public on April 1.

The room was built in a way that incorporated both high-quality Japanese service and Western-style comfort to create the ultimate home away from home. Equipped with expansive windows, the room offers a stunning view of the Tokyo skyline. Divided into the living room tatami (Japanese straw floor) area and the bedroom, the newly furbished room is brighter and more relaxing.

Guests staying in the FUJI junior suite are also eligible to use the Executive Lounge on the same floor to enjoy breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktails with a view. The fitness club, which has a swimming pool and a gym, is also open for the suite guests.

The junior suite ranges from ¥121,176 to ¥133,056. Prices include tax and service fee.

The Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel is five minutes from the West Exit of Shibuya Station. For more information or reservations, visit or call 03-3476-3000.
