Opened in December 2018, Hotel 1899 Tokyo overflows with Japanese green tea culture. Located in Shinbashi, next to Tokyo Station, within sight of Tokyo Tower, guests can eat matcha-infused cuisine on the 1st floor and try a variety of green teas on the 2nd floor and in their rooms.

Check-In at the Lobby Resembling a Tearoom

The check-in counter on the 2nd floor has the ambience of a tearoom. When checking in, the staff serves tea using leaves from tin caddies designed by Kaikado, a well-known artisanal company in Kyoto, which allows you to fully appreciate this modern take on a Japanese-tearoom-turned-lobby.

Additionally, tea bags and tea confectioneries are for sale on the 2nd floor. They also have star-shaped konpeito (*1) made from Niigata Prefecture’s high-quality rice and sugar. With a variety of colors and flavors, these sweets compliment tea and their flavor further deepens when tried with yogurt or sparkling water.
