Feb 19, 2021
There are many discoveries to be made traveling throughout Japan.
THE KNOT was born through dialogue and discussion with local communities,
learning distinctive histories and experiencing unique cultures.
Just as there are countless forms of travel,
each distinctive THE KNOT takes a different form and character unique to its location.
Visitors, communities, and the old and the new come together to create the city’s story.
An experience unique to the city awaits.
The theme of THE KNOT TOKYO Shinjuku is “Diversity and Openness”. Shinjuku is a diverse city, both in its culture and people. Much like the Shinjuku Central Park in front of the hotel, our primary source of inspiration, we are an open space that caters for work, play and relaxation. THE KNOT TOKYO Shinjuku is a place where diverse lifestyles intersect. Opened in August 2018.
The theme of THE KNOT YOKOHAMA is a “Fusion and Succession of History”. The port city of Yokohama developed eccentrically through the years as Japan’s first international trading port, and the unique history is seen throughout the city today. THE KNOT YOKOHAMA cherishes the rich story and culture of its home and invites people to gather here to discover something new, be it through conversation or observation. Opened in December 2017.
The first THE KNOT in the Chugoku Region will open on August 1, 2020 (grand opening set for late 2020). Looking out from the 14th floor lobby and rooftop bar, you see a vast horizon that is punctuated with the outlines of the breathtaking Setouchi Islands. The hotel is conveniently located in the city centre, close to the ferry to Miyajima and the Peace Memorial Park. The rooftop bar is open to everyone, a great place to take a breather at the end of your day and enjoy the local sakes that Hiroshima has to offer.
The theme of THE KNOT SAPPORO is “In a Big City of Nature”. The luscious landscape beyond the already green city is endless. Here is the starting point of your journey of exploring the wonders of nature. Everything you experience in this place leads to the moment when you realise, yet again, that you are part of this harsh but beautiful wilderness that extends just a few city blocks away.Opened in August 2020.
Our rooms are small yet full of individuality, with a focus on affordable luxury.
We also offer suite rooms in some of our hotels where you can immerse yourself in the philosophy unique to that THE KNOT.
Consciously selected ingredients, consciously representing the area. Just as each THE KNOT is a space where you can feel and appreciate the surrounding area, THE KNOT restaurant is a place to taste this local climate.
The bar is a space where you can enjoy an aperitif before heading out to the city or share a nightcap before going to bed. A space with good music for a quick pick-me-up or a relaxed hangout.
THE KNOT Magazine is a free tabloid-sized paper which is full of local information on people and shops in the city. It is available online and in hardcopy for you to take home, so please use it as a guide for your trip before, during, and after. We look forward to sharing our recommendations with you.
