Best Western Hotels & Resorts is continuing to expand in Asia’s key gateway cities with the launch of a newly-built hotel in Osaka.

Opening on September 1, 2017, Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto will provide business and leisure travelers with a brand new midscale accommodation option in the heart of Japan’s second largest city.

Nestled in downtown Osaka, this modern hotel is positioned just two minutes away from JR Tsukamoto Station, which provides direct links to the Japanese cultural capital Kyoto, and is only two stops away from Shin Osaka Station, where guests can catch the Shinkansen bullet train to Tokyo.

Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto is one of three new Japanese hotels signed by Best Western Hotels & Resorts earlier this year. The other new properties are located in Sapporo and at Yamagata Airport, and are due to launch in the coming months.

“We are delighted to open Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto as we bolster our presence in Japan’s key gateway cities and most popular destinations,” said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s Managing Director of International Operations – Asia. “As the second most populous city in Japan, a key business travel hub, and the country’s culinary capital, Osaka is a glittering global metropolis.”

“With Japan preparing for a surge of international visitor arrivals over the coming years, as it hosts the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and Summer Olympics in 2020, Osaka will play a major role in the country’s tourism development. Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto will provide the city’s rising number of visitors with a contemporary, convenient and well-connected midscale hotel option in the heart of the city.”

“We look forward to welcoming the first guests to this exciting new property on September 1 and continuing along Osaka’s exciting journey in the month and years ahead,” Olivier added.

Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto offers a total of 105 modern rooms, all of which feature high-tech facilities and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi. The hotel will also feature a restaurant serving local and international cuisine, a 24-hour business center and laundry services.

Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto becomes Best Western’s second property in the city, following the Best Western Hotel Fino Osaka Shinsaibashi. The hotel also takes the company’s total Japanese portfolio to 13 hotels.

Japan’s tourism industry is undergoing an unprecedented boom. The country welcomed a record 24 million international visitors last year, and the Japanese government is now targeting 40 million arrivals by 2020 – the year the country hosts the Olympic Games.
