Flower arrangement artist Hiroki Maeno has created special and unique flower arrangements for display in the main lobby of our hotel with each change of the seasons, four times a year. His newest flower arrangement will be 2.7 meters wide by 5 meters tall and made from bamboo, greeneries and white enkianthus, which are symbolic of cool in Japan, to provide aesthetic relief from the summer heat. This arrangement will be displayed from August 4 to 18, 2017 for all hotel guests to enjoy. The Keio Plaza Hotel has offered “Ikebana” flower arrangement workshops to guests staying at our hotel on an ad hoc basis until now, but in response to strong demand we will now begin offering these workshops on a regular basis and to a wider audience that includes visitors not staying at our Hotel.

Over 75% of the guests staying at the Keio Plaza Hotel are overseas visitors from over 100 different countries. Therefore, the Keio Plaza Hotel hosts various events throughout the year including live Koto Japanese harp performances and other traditional Japanese craft exhibitions as opportunities for our guests to experience the beauty of Japanese traditional culture. As part of our cultural experience programs, our hotel also provides events to experience Japanese tea ceremony at our tea room facilities, and to wear traditional Japanese kimono wedding gowns.
