More than a hundred years since the first ten thousand trees were planted on the land, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo’s vast garden was built in a war-torn Tokyo following the war.

In celebration of the hotel’s upcoming 70th anniversary, delegates will also witness an element that adds to the allure of the lush emerald oasis surrounding this hotel: the “sea of clouds”.

This event only takes place during the autumn and winter months. But did you know that come summertime, hundreds of twinkling fireflies – or hotaru – occupy the garden, creating a magical atmosphere one can only dream of?

Like the sea of clouds, the fireflies are part of the hotel’s carefully planned out seasonal experiences offered to guests. Each are raised in the Japanese city of Nagano by the Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo’s team of specialists before they are placed in the Chinzanso Garden’s stream.
