Farewell to Tokyo’s Hilltop Hotel, Treasured by Literary Giants

TOKYO, Feb 13 (News On Japan) –
The Hilltop Hotel in Chiyoda, Tokyo, cherished by esteemed literary figures like Yasunari Kawabata, Yukio Mishima, and Shōtarō Ikenami as their common retreat, closed its doorways on Monday for final time.

The closing is because of the ageing infrastructure of the constructing, with no specified timeline for reopening. On its final day, people flocked to its foyer and restaurant to bid a sentimental farewell to a spot deeply interwoven with Japan’s cultural and literary heritage.
