Design Hotels™ latest member hotel in the city of Tokyo is the stunning new Hotel Kaminarimon by HULIC in the historic northeastern Tokyo neighborhood of Asakusa. Shigeru Uchida, one of the country’s most famous architects, has transformed the former office building into a crisp, clean, contemporary sanctuary. “I’m interested in something beyond the visible or touchable, that is, the existence within the invisible,” says architect and interior designer Shigeru Uchida. Guestrooms include full-length windows, a spacious bed, textiles by Marimekko designer Masaru Suzuki and original artwork by the acclaimed Japanese artist Katsuhiko Hibino.
