At the Park Hotel Tokyo, we welcome our guests with hospitality in the form of “arrangement”, one of Japan’s aesthetic values, expressed through the medium of art. As part of this initiative, we hold a series of art exhibitions, “ART colours”, representing the four seasons of Japan.
The 2022 Summer – Autumn Exhibition will be by Ginza Galleries, a voluntary organization of galleries in Ginza. From a list of about 40 galleries, 8 galleries have voluntarily lined up extraordinary artworks to decorate the Atrium of Park Hotel Tokyo.
In summer, we feel clear blue skies, pure white clouds, and passionate suns, while in autumn, also known as “Irodori Zuki” (meaning colorful month for the color of the leaves on the trees), the changing and diverse scenes flow like the wind and the forms of nature change day by day. To show our admiration for the season, varieties of artworks that exist in the “Here and Now” are selected for the exhibition.
The genre of artworks includes painting, sculpture, and crafts. The participating artists range from young 20s to veterans in their 70s, and the highlight is the fresh expression that belies their age. Dynamic, lovely, precise, humorous, and exhilarating are only a few words to describe their artworks. Please come and experience the power of art to enrich your mind and make you feel like you can’t take your eyes off it.
Date: May 16 (Mon.) – November 13 (Sun.), 2022
Time: 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Place: Atrium (25F)

Based on the concept of “Infinite time and space amid cognizant Japanese beauty”, Park Hotel Tokyo has been making efforts so that our guests can experience Japanese aesthetics in each scene of ART (Atrium, Restaurant, and Travel). As part of our initiatives, we hold series of art exhibition “ART colours” at the Atrium to welcome our guests with hospitality in the form of “arrangement”. The exhibition will be held throughout spring, summer, autumn, and winter, it is an exhibition of artworks with a sense of the season that is delicate with time and space.
Since ancient times, Japan has been a country rich in nature and has sharply reflected the changes of seasons, such as the changing nature landscapes, plants, festivals, traditional arts and culture. Along with feeling the beauty of the season, the enjoyment, the harshness of the seasons, a spirit of loving nature was born and the aesthetic sense peculiar to Japanese has been nurtured.
Known as the most popular tea master who developed the culture of tea ceremony, Sen-no-Rikyu left the words “Cool in summer, warm in winter”. It is a manifestation of the feelings of how to entertain guests along with the ever changing nature, and it can be said that is is the spirit of hospitality.
We welcome you with the hospitality of the four seasons in a relaxing time and space like an art museum, feeling the Japanese seasons and culture through art.
