JAL City Fukuoka Tenjin to Open in 2021

Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Hotel Okura Co., Ltd., announced today that it will open Hotel JAL City Fukuoka Tenjin in 2021. The company has contracted with Fukuoka Tenjin Hotel Management GK to manage the
new property, which will be located in the central Tenjin district of Fukuoka – one of Japan’s
largest and busiest cities, located strategically close to the Asian mainland. Sekisui House, Ltd.,
a renowned Japanese construction company, is now building the hotel and aiming to complete it
by January 2021.

Based on Hotel JAL City’s brand concept “smart simplicity”, the new hotel will offer a smart
and simple stay experience, providing check-in and check-out and room key functionality by
means of guests’ smartphones. It will also address customer needs with a wide range of tailored
services. The property will offer 280 guest rooms ranging from 25 square meters in size as well
as all-day dining facilities.

Toshihiro Ogita, President, Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co., Ltd., commented, “We are
very pleased to be opening the third property of Okura Nikko Hotels in Fukuoka, a vibrant city
that has become a gateway between Japan and Asia. We are confident that with our three hotel
groups—Okura Hotels & Resorts, Nikko Hotels International and Hotel JAL City—we will be
able to match all guests’ requirements in Fukuoka.”
Fukuoka is almost the same distance from Shanghai, Taipei, and Seoul as it is from major cities
in Japan such as Osaka, Tokyo, and Sapporo. The city has been rapidly developing on the
strength of its proximity to other major Asian cities, and is aiming to become a commercial hub
in North Asia.

The hotel will be located adjacent to the dynamic Tenjin area, which is being revitalized as part
of Fukuoka City’s urban redevelopment project “Tenjin Big Bang”, and will offer easy access
from Fukuoka airport as well as from the city’s Hakata shinkansen station.

The Tenjin Big Bang project will create new commercial facilities and employment, enhancing
Fukuoka’s attractiveness as a hub for the Asia region. The city aims to complete the
reconstruction of offices and commercial facilities there by 2024, creating a comfortable and
vibrant urban quarter. This project is expected to revitalize the area around Tenjin and further
enhance the attractiveness of Fukuoka not only for business travelers but also for tourists from
all over the world.
