What makes Trunk (Hotel), Tokyo, so special?
Heard the phrase ‘a lifestyle, not a destination’? It could be Trunk (Hotel)’s unofficial mantra.

And you won’t be able to miss it – it’s constructed from black steel, stone and glass, with sharp angles giving it a modern aesthetic.
What to expect when staying at Trunk (Hotel), Tokyo?
Trunk (Hotel)’s look and location are part of the reason it attracts a creative crowd, along with its 15 playful rooms – some of which are filled with cool tech like record players and projectors.

Trunk (Hotel)’s been designed with socialising in mind, so the open lobby café bar is a great meeting point – serving artisan coffee as well as cocktails. But for something more substantial, head to the hotel’s restaurant: Trunk (Kitchen). Here you’ll find local takes on international dishes, including burrata that’s handmade in a nearby shop in Shibuya. When you head out, you’ll find plenty to do in the surrounding neighbourhood – from relaxing in Yoyogi Park to visiting the many bars and restaurants on Nonbei Yokocho.
