Taro Kagami | 东京zen茶室式胶囊酒店
随着2020年夏季奥运会的临近，预计赴日游客数量将出现前所未有的增长，日本首都东京的酒店行业也将受到影响。作为新开业酒店浪潮的一部分，hotel zen tokyo通过将日本胶囊酒店的核心元素和禅宗极简主义融入高档精品概念，以“茶室住宿”为理念为自己开辟了一个市场。这家酒店由东京建筑师Taro Kagami创办。Taro Kagami在广告业声名鹊起，如今正涉足工业设计和酒店管理领域。
With the 2020 Summer Olympics looming on the horizon, an unprecedented boost of travellers is expected, putting a spin on the Japanese capital’s hospitality scene. As part of a wave of new hotel openings, hotel zen tokyo carves a niche for itself by blending the core element of Japan‘s capsule hotel and zen minimalism into an upscale boutique concept. The hotel is founded by Taro Kagami, a Tokyo-based architect who, after earning his spurs in advertising, is now dipping his toe in the industrial design and hospitality pools.
hotel zen tokyo offers a total of 78 capsule and rooms set across seven floors of a modern building. Each room in the hotel is a pod (capsule-type accommodation) and guests can choose from various bed sizes and pod styles. Each pod is designed in accordance with Japanese traditional design disciplines, with touches of wabi-sabi, Japanese version of minimalistic design that appreciates small spaces and natural materials. Enjoy a good night’s stay in traditional Japanese architecture while enjoying music at the bar downstairs or local flavors while strolling around the neighborhood.
