Bulgari Hotels & Resorts and real estate company Mitsui Fudosan have signed an agreement to open a new hotel in Tokyo in late 2022. The jewelry brand already has two restaurants in Tokyo and Osaka.

Japan’s first Bulgari Hotel will be developed as part of a mixed-use development on floors 39 to 45 of a skyscraper within the Yaesu 2-Chome North District Category-I Urban Redevelopment Plan. Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel will design the 95-guestroom property, which will be near the Imperial Palace, the Nihombashi and Ginza shopping centers and the Nihombashi and Marunouchi financial districts.
