It is one of the most exclusive and aristocratic hotels in Tokyo. During this dinner I was lucky enough to cook for prominent members of the Japanese aristocracy, industrialists and several members of the royal family.
Some information about Imperial Hotel: Opened in 1890 at the request of the Japanese nobility, the Imperial Hotel Tokyo has a fascinating history. Located centrally just south of the imperial palace gardens, the palace has always attracted a high-profile clientele who rely on the discretion of the staff particularly adept at taking care of discerning guests. The rooms are located in the main building and tower, and many of them overlook Hibiya Park, the Palace and the elegant Ginza district. Two pleasures not to be missed are the daily chanoyu (the traditional tea ceremony) and a drink at the Old Imperial Bar, an elegant Art Deco-style venue that contains pieces of murals and terracottes from the original building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1923.
