Sip Sake Under the Stars or Dress Like One in New Tokyo Packages
Palace Hotel Tokyo celebrates both the old and the new this fall
TOKYO, Japan (August 6, 2015) - For millennia Tokyoites have looked to the stars during the harvest moon celebration.

As the autumn moon waxes above Japan, guests of Palace Hotel Tokyo can experience Tsukimi, a moon-viewing celebration that dates back a thousand years. Between September 1 and October 31, Moon Over Tokyo guests will enjoy a bottle of 1-1-1 daiginjyo sake crafted exclusively for the hotel by the famed Hakkaisan brewery. The premium brew can be sipped from a moon-inspired sake pitcher and cups set made of pure tin and gold leaf by Nousaku, which guests will be able to take home.

Guests particularly keen to learn more about Nousaku’s unique manufacturing methods will also have the option of privately touring the company’s foundry in Toyama during their stay.
