These international guests account for nearly 70% of the guests, many of whom are interested to learn more about Japanese culture. As part of continual efforts to share Japanese traditions with overseas guests, the hotel is now offering visitors the opportunity to experience a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony on a scheduled basis.
