[Hoshinoya Tokyo] “New Year’s Kabuki Stay” brings the hospitality of an Edo Period theatrical teahouse to the present day.

2023.11.29

Hoshinoya Tokyo, a Japanese-style inn located in Otemachi, Tokyo, will again this year host the “New Year Kabuki Stay” program, a two-day and one-night stay from January 5 to 26, 2024.
For people living in Edo, one of their New Year’s pleasures was to watch Kabuki, and it was a chic way to spend the New Year. Theatrical teahouses supported this way of enjoying Kabuki. In addition to arranging tickets to the theater, the teahouses delighted patrons by providing a complete range of services, including plot notes, tea, sweets, makunouchi box lunches, and snacks and drinks (*1). Hoshinoya Tokyo offers a stay to celebrate the New Year with hospitality similar to the theatrical teahouses of the time.

Smoke before watching a play in a space that represents a theatrical teahouse in the New Year.

The “Ochanoma Lounge,” where guests can relax as if in a living room, will be set up in the image of a theatrical teahouse for the New Year. Against the backdrop of a formal curtain, oshikuma, ukiyo-e prints, and fans associated with Kabuki plays will be decorated to create a festive atmosphere for the New Year.

While visiting the temple to feel the Edo atmosphere, take a rickshaw to the Kabuki-za Theater.

The course will take you to the Kabuki-za Theater on a course that will give you a sense of the Edo atmosphere. It is an elegant way to view the city of Tokyo from a higher vantage point than on foot, while listening to explanations from a chauffeur who is familiar with the history and geography of Tokyo.

Soak in the afterglow of the viewing experience with Mont Blanc and dessert wine made to look like soba noodles.

At theatrical teahouses in the Edo period, sake snacks and water sweets were served one after another. In this program, we will offer sake snacks and wine supervised by Hoshinoya’s Executive Chef, Noriyuki Hamada, in imitation of the hospitality of such theatrical teahouses.

[Shinjuku Gyoen x Naked] NAKED Autumn Foliage in Shinjuku Gyoen 2023 to be held

From November 22 (Wed) to December 3 (Sun), 2023, an autumn foliage lighting event will be held at Shinjuku Gyoen. Following the cherry blossom event this spring, Shinjuku Gyoen and Naked will collaborate again this fall for the autumn foliage event. Shinjuku Gyoen, one of Tokyo’s most famous gardens, is one of the few places in the city where visitors can enjoy the autumn leaves. The 200-meter-long rows of plane trees, the best maple tree spot in the city, Momijiyama, and the “Middle Pond,” with its spectacular reflection in the pond, will offer a world where the autumn leaves of Shinjuku Gyoen and Naked’s art and food are fused together.
