[Hoshinoya Tokyo] Enjoy private cherry-blossom viewing in the hall “Stay in Tokyo / Okomori Hanami”

2021.03.15

Hoshinoya Tokyo, a Japanese inn that has evolved in line with the present age, will start selling “Tokyo Okomori Hanami Stay” from March 1, 2021, where you can enjoy private cherry blossom viewing. In this plan, cherry blossoms will be displayed in the Ochanoma lounge located in the center of the guest room floor so that you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing while you are in the hall.
We will prepare cherry blossoms selected from all over Japan according to the flowering situation.
In addition, in the Ochanoma Lounge, Sakuramochi, which has been popular as a cherry blossom viewing place since the Edo period, is prepared as a welcoming tea confectionery, and you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing while tasting sake that makes you feel the arrival of spring and sweets related to cherry blossoms. You can enjoy. For dinner, you can enjoy the freshly made eel that arrives directly from the long-established eel restaurant in Nihonbashi while watching the cherry blossoms in your room.

In the Edo period, it is said that many people, including daimyo, samurai, merchants, and ordinary people, all enjoyed cherry blossom viewing when they heard that “cherry blossoms had bloomed.” (* 1) Even now, many people gather to see the cherry blossoms in the spring. Therefore, in Hoshinoya Tokyo, due to the influence of corona, outdoor cherry blossom viewing where many people gather tends to be avoided, so I want you to enjoy cherry blossom viewing once a year with peace of mind while avoiding the three crowds. , We have developed this plan.

Features of "Tokyo / Okomori Hanami Stay"

1. Enjoy cherry blossom viewing in the hall

On each floor of Hoshinoya Tokyo, there is a shared space exclusively for guests, the Ochanoma Lounge, and 6 guest rooms. In this plan, Yoshino cherry tree, which is characterized by the pale cherry blossoms that spread in the Ochanoma lounge during the Edo period, and Kawazu, which is bright and dark, so that you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing at any time in the hall regardless of the weather and the flowering situation of the cherry blossoms. You can set up fresh flowers such as cherry blossoms that are close to full bloom. You can enjoy cherry blossom viewing with peace of mind while avoiding three crowds in a spacious space. You can also take a small cherry blossom bowl prepared in the living room lounge back to your room and enjoy a private cherry blossom viewing.

2. Sake and meals associated with cherry blossom viewing in the Edo period

In the Edo period, it was common practice to bring a lunch box when viewing cherry blossoms, and it is said that each person brought their favorite meal and enjoyed cherry blossom viewing. (* 2) In this plan, in the guest rooms, which are private spaces that are not crowded, with the cooperation of the long-established eel store “Nihonbashi Izumoya”, we will prepare a cherry-blossom viewing lunch that will be delivered from the store for dinner.

In addition, the sake is “Iinuma Honke Koshi Haru Sake Kanbashi”, which has a slightly foaming and fresh taste so that you can enjoy it while watching the cherry blossoms. When you pour sake, you can enjoy it in a sake set where the cherry blossoms in full bloom appear on the bottom of the sake cup. In addition, in the Ochanoma lounge, you can enjoy seasonal tea confectionery related to cherry blossoms, such as Sakuramochi from “Iidabashi Mannendo” and Kintsuba with cherry blossom petals from “Eitaro Sohonpo”. I will prepare it.

For users of this plan only, we will prepare a hand towel of Hoshinoya Tokyo original design with the motif of “Hoshinoya Square” in front of the entrance of Hoshinoya Tokyo or “Hemp leaf waste” on the outside as a souvenir.
