Introducing the first accommodation plan that guarantees "lights on board"

Last year, the hotel members' accommodation plan, which included a "Shipboard Lantern Gift" and attracted approximately 2,000 applications for a capacity of 120 boats, will be sold at Hotel New Otani (Tokyo), which will celebrate its 60th anniversary this September. You can choose from approximately many types of rooms that Hotel New Otani (Tokyo) is proud of, and a bus transfer between the hotel and the venue is included. This is a special plan that allows you to relax after participating in the lantern floating. It is expected to sell out in a short period of time, so please make your reservation early.
