Grand Hyatt Tokyo unveiled a collaboration with renowned artist Takashi Murakami in the form of a special art-focused redesign of one of its executive-level “Chairman Suites” as part of the Roppongi Hills Takashi Murakami Project.
The new Takashi Murakami Flower Gallery Stay package at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo is the first of its kind and is offered exclusively in one suite decorated with original artwork that was created especially for this collaboration. The multi-room suite has been bolstered with 14 of Murakami’s signature artworks and is accompanied by a bevy of artist-related activities. Pieces present in the room include paintings, rugs, and more. But the most notable of the bunch is the 195 cm Flower Parent & Child sculpture in the living room, done in metallic gold.
The price for a group of two guests starts at JPY450,000 (approximately USD4,298) per night. Up to three additional guests can stay in the room as well for an extra charge of JPY20,000 (approximately USD191) per night. In addition to the artwork, the stay package includes a special in-room Flower dinner course, a Flower sweets box with rosé champagne, an autographed art book, Flower masks and mugs, and an optional Flower nail art service that is sure to delight art aficionados.
Aside from the stay package and due to popular demand, The French Kitchen at the hotel will be extending its Takashi Murakami Flower afternoon tea while adding seasonal strawberries to the menu. The Instagrammable afternoon tea service is inspired by Murakami’s famous Flower works and offers sweets such as a strawberry mousse with printed flower chocolate and the popular strawberry shortcake lined with colorful mini profiteroles that resembles a flower field. Diners can make it an even more memorable experience by snapping some photos at a special photo spot that will be prepared in the restaurant.
For those looking to enjoy the delicacies at home, Grand Hyatt Tokyo has unveiled a new afternoon tea takeout box. It features two layers of vibrant sweet and savory items inspired by the artist’s famous Flower works as well as an original menu card and a purple Flower furoshiki wrapping cloth that was specially created for this collaboration. Only 20 boxes will be sold per day and must be reserved in advance.
