Oak Hotel Edo, Something New in Morishita

Next to Ryogoku with its Kokugikan Sumo arena, chanko-nabe stew restaurants, Kiyosumi Garden that was constructed during the Edo period, and the new museum dedicated to ukiyo-e master Katsushika Hokusai, Morishita is full of Edo (old Tokyo) atmosphere. To immerse yourself in it, you can (from Dec. 23, 2016) make Oak Hotel Edo your base. Conveniently close to Toei Subway’s Morishita Station and with rooms or dormitory options suiting different traveling styles, it will help you explore a hidden side of Tokyo!

See, Eat and Experience – a Different Digital Art Exhibition

Besides the area’s famous charms, visitors to Nihombashi from Jan. 28 to May 21 will also have the opportunity to enter a world of wonders centered around one of Japan’s foremost obsessions: food!

A feast for all the senses not to be missed.
