Japan: Mandarin Oriental crafts new guest experience package

Mandarin Oriental Tokyo will offer guests the chance to experience local surroundings via their new "Nihonbashi Experience."

Mandarin Oriental Tokyo is located in the district of Nihonbashi. The district takes its name from the celebrated Nihonbashi monument.

This neighbourhood features centuries-old shops specialising in a range of goods, from traditional materials and lacquerware to Japanese culinary delicacies such as dashi and seaweed. The prominent Shinto shrines and one of the best spots for cherry blossom viewing 'Edo Sakura Dori', are also in the vicinity. Nihonbashi is also home to the Bank of Japan and Japan's oldest department store, Nihonbashi Mitsukoshi Maini.

As well as touring the district, guests can opt to participate in a range of themed activities. These include the opportunity to rent and wear an authentic Kimono, Washi paper making, glass engraving, and lessons in the art of Japanese flower arrangement.

The experience will be guided and curated by the hotel's concierge team, who will provide personalised insight into the the surrounding district and city.
