TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo (KPH), one of Japan’s most prestigious international hotels located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, started a special sightseeing limousine tour of sake breweries and a museum with optional English-speaking chauffeurs in collaboration with Keio Jidousha Co., Ltd (Keio Taxi Company) in December, 2016. This plan is offered in commemoration of the opening of the Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo’s highest category of accommodation facility “Premier Grand Club Floors,” and in response to the strong demand from overseas guests interested in experiencing Japanese culture at a more personal level in the comfort of a luxury vehicle.
This chauffeured tour will take guests to two of three Japanese sake breweries located in western Tokyo, including Ishikawa Brewery, Tamura Brewery, and Ozawa Brewery. Also, guests will be taken to “Kushi Kanzashi (Traditional ornate hair combs) Museum.” This tour can take up to six guests in chauffeur driven minivans, with an option to hire English speaking chauffeurs.
Over 75% of guests using the Keio Plaza Hotel (1,437 guest rooms) are from overseas. Keio Plaza Hotel offers guests a wide variety of sightseeing options including 50 different types of sightseeing bus tours arriving and departing from our hotel lobby, Tokyo sightseeing taxis, free shuttle buses to Tokyo Disneyland, and many more. This tour exploring sake breweries has been created in response to the rising worldwide popularity of Japanese sake, as well as the growing interest of overseas visitors to participate in and learn about Japanese culture, in addition to spending time shopping during their visits. Most of the sake breweries in Tokyo are located in the countryside and are viewed as difficult places to visit, especially for overseas travelers who are not familiar with these areas. By starting this plan, we seek to offer our guests unique opportunities to discover new and exciting aspects of Tokyo.
