About this sight

Originally built in 1963 a year before the Tokyo Olympics as the Hilton Hotel (Tokyo), this hotel hosted celebrities such as the Beatles and Michael Jackson as its guests. The hotel closed in 2006, was renovated by Kengo Kuma and Associates and reopened in 2010 as the Capitol Hotel Tokyu. Although situated in a high-rise tower, building's lattice exterior and stacked truss interior are designed to evoke traditional Japanese wooden architecture.
