“Tokyo serves as the perfect setting for the Edition brand, presenting the best of the world’s cultural and social milieu for travellers who seek exceptional places and experiences,” said Anthony Capuano, executive vice president and global chief development officer, Marriott International.
Miwako Date, president and CEO of Mori Trust, added, “I am convinced that from these two Edition hotels new values of a new era that attract the world’s people can be sent to the world at the best timing of 2020 when the Tokyo Olympic Games will be held.”
