An Enchanting Autumn

November 01, 2013
Guests at The Peninsula Tokyo experienced the magic of autumn in Japan last November with nine magnificent maple tree arrangements in The Lobby, each standing three metres tall with the centre arrangement illuminated by traditional Japanese washi paper lanterns.

Dining tables in The Lobby also celebrated the arrival of the first kouyou autumn leaves with stunning yellow and orange flower table arrangements while custom-made washi paper lanterns with maple leaf designs hung at the base of The Peninsula’s iconic Hanabi chandelier by Keisen Hama.

From the first until the 8th of November, hotel guests passed under The Lobby’s maple leaf canvas while being serenaded by traditional Japanese shakuhachi flute music. By night, guests were treated to a serene setting with paper lanterns, ivory walls and wooden lattices, echoing the senbongoshi wooden lattice architecture of old Kyoto, the nation’s former capital and still the centre of Japanese culture.
