Four Seasons Tokyo

Four Seasons Tokyo spa channels Issey Miyake


Fashion icon Issey Miyake has been the inspiration for a spa at the new Four Seasons hotel in Tokyo.

The luxury 190-key hotel is housed in the top six floors of the new 39-storey Otemachi Tower and crowned with a zen-like sanctuary designed by Jean-Michel Gathy at the top.

Industry consultancy GOCO helped realise the 900sq m offering which has five treatment rooms, and state-of-the-art heat and water facilities with views of Mount Fuji and the Imperial Palace Gardens. And as guests enter the spa lobby they’re greeted with a three-dimensional paper installation which seems to billow and sweep outwards, as if caught in the wind, in a nod to Miyake’s trademark flowing material creations.

The vision is to blend contemporary and classic design – elements such as ofuru, traditional Japanese bathing pools, are offered alongside a heated lounger shower experience, as well as an indoor pool, vitality pool and fitness centre.

Meanwhile, the balancing wellness menu has been inspired by Japanese rituals such shinrin-yoku, the art of forest bathing, and each treatment begins and ends with the chiming and vibrations of an orin bell. A small selection of treatments are also supplied by Swiss product house Valmont.

“The exciting and elegant Four Seasons Tokyo at Otemachi will become an icon in the dynamic and culturally rich city of Tokyo,” says GOCO founder and CEO Ingo Schweder. “The spa marries a unique combination of contemporary and traditional wellness experiences for each and every guest.”
