“Our properties throughout the country are receiving an increasing number of international visitors, and we hope they take advantage of our loyalty program,” said Akira Segawa, Fujita Kanko’s president. “We want our international guests to discover diverse attractions and experience Japan by visiting different regions and participating in a variety of activities.”
Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, the company’s one-of-a-kind five-star flagship, for example, offers unique cultural activities for international guests such as kimono rentals and fittings and traditional Japanese tea ceremonies performed at an authentic tea house. Fujita Kanko is also a pioneer as an onsen (Japanese hot spring) resort developer and operates traditional Japanese-style inns and onsen facilities.
Fujita Kanko is aggressively expanding its network of properties with new hotel openings. The company opened Hotel Gracery Naha and Hotel Gracery Kyoto Sanjo North in 2016. Scheduled openings in 2017 include Hakone Kowaki-en Tenyu, a new upscale Japanese hot spring resort, in April; Hotel Gracery Kyoto Sanjo South in May; and Kisarazu Washington Hotel in December. The company also plans to open hotels in overseas markets: Seoul, Korea in 2018 and Taipei, Taiwan in 2019.
