Unveiling the ICONIC TOKYU Kabukicho Tower in Shinjuku

 

Rising impressively in Shinjuku’s skyline, the TOKYU KABUKICHO TOWER is a spectacular addition to Tokyo’s architectural wonders. This 48-story behemoth stands approximately 225 meters tall but its architectural brilliance isn’t limited to its height, but its multi-faceted utility—boasting of hotels, entertainment amenities like a cinema, theater, and live venue, spread across its above-ground stories, five basement levels, and lavish penthouses.

 

Globally celebrated architect Yuko Nagayama has skilfully crafted the tower’s exterior. She chose ‘water’ as a central motif, paying homage to Kabukicho’s history, where once a river flowed. The Japanese Seigaiha pattern, signifying a wave’s crest, adorns the tower, which is evident in its ceramic window prints and various architectural highlights. This design echoes the traditional roots of Kabukicho, where water remains integral, as symbolized by the enshrined goddess of water, Kabukicho Benzaiten. Yet, what truly sets this landmark apart is its dual role as the domicile to two brand-new hotel ventures, Bellustar Tokyo, A Pan Pacific Hotel and Hotel Groove Shinjuku, a Parkroyal Hotel. These establishments promise to fuse the age-old elegance of Japanese hospitality with modern luxury and art-infused ambiance, positioning the Tower as a beacon of unparalleled leisure and comfort in Tokyo’s bustling heart.
