Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, a luxury urban resort, has unveiled its latest special event, “Forest Aurora,” northern lights projected using state-of-the-art technology over the hotel’s vast garden. Northern lights, or aurora borealis, are an atmospheric phenomenon, typically seen in regions close to the arctic circles, which displays dynamic patterns of brilliant lights that appear as curtains, rays, spirals, or vibrant flickers covering the sky. Like those, “Forest Aurora,” presented until February 7th, 2022, appears in the evening/night sky covering the hotel property every 30 minutes between 7 pm and 10 pm, each projection lasting for five minutes.
“Combining with another signature attraction of ours, “Tokyo Sea of Clouds,” guests are guaranteed to experience the magical phenomenon without leaving the big city Tokyo,” says Shinsuke Yamashita, the hotel’s GM. “Although it is still challenging to travel internationally, this will be our ongoing winter event. With “Forest Aurora” put in place for winter, we now offer exceptional scenic wonders for every season all year round. Every day of the year is the best time to enjoy our magnificent property. We are prepared to welcome back our international guests anytime.”
The hotel’s majestic botanical garden also boasts 2,300 camellia trees from 100 different species, which blossom in the winter/early spring. During the season, another feature, “Tokyo Camellia,” will be reinstalled.
Fujita Kanko, the owner/manager of Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, opened the Chinzanso garden to the public in 1952. Leading to the official 70th anniversary in 2022, the hotel began hosting various events/programs, identifying seven seasons to showcase spectacular views of the garden and its natural beauties, which will continue as the hotel’s signature attractions.
Until February 7th, 2022, special Aurora accommodation plan (limited to six parties/night) with a private Aurora viewing and dining plans are also available. For more information, visit:
