Park Hotel Tokyo announced on December 20 that its new Artist Room, “The Tale of Genji,” will be available for stay from the same day. The new room, completed on December 1 as the 27th Artist Room in a series, is a decorated version of a standard room by artist Takushi Mizuno.
In the Artist Rooms, selected Japanese artists paint on walls and ceilings while staying at the hotel. Rooms are turned into the only piece of artwork, based on the concept “Beauty of Japan.” Mizuno, illustrator as well as art director, had chosen and completed the room with “The Tale of Genji” as the motif.
Artist Mizuno said:
“The Tale of Genji is a literary work and cultural heritage. I expressed the mythical atmosphere which I felt through the story in this Artist Room.”
General Manager Yoshiaki Hayashi said:
“This room was created by Takushi Mizuno, who had led the advertising industry in Japan. I hope guests will feel the glamorous lifestyle enjoyed by princes and ladies who lived long ago in the Heian Period.”
Park Hotel Tokyo hopes that through the stay in Artist Room The Tale of Genji, guests will enjoy the glamorous lifestyle and atmosphere of the Heian Period over 1000 years ago.
