Hoshino Opens Affordable Hotels in Japan

Hoshino Resorts has opened its first two OMO hotels in Japan this spring. The OMO concept was developed to answer the demand for reasonably-priced city-centre hotels for leisure travellers.

The new brand features affordable, high-design hospitality with prices from £33 per person, per night. The first hotel, OMO7 Asahikawa opened on 28 April 2018 in Hokkaido, and the second, OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka, opened on 9 May 2018.

OMO7 Asahikawa is situated in the heart of Hokkaido, perfectly positioned for exploring the area’s lively local scene, with its many restaurants, bars and shops, as well as offering day trips to must-see attractions such as the lavender fields and rolling landscapes of Furano and Biei. It has 237 bedrooms, social areas (OMO Café & Bar and OMO Base Lounge) and a Books Tunnel (a loft-like library with an extensive variety of reading material). A large wooden neighbourhood (KINJO) map encourages guests to explore off the beaten track and discover the sights, sounds and scents of Asahikawa’s many gourmet restaurants. Guests can also join a guided tour led by an OMO Ranger (from £6 per person) to find the town’s hottest spots and access the renowned restaurants that only the locals know.

Room-only prices at OMO7 Asahikawa start from £66 (based on two sharing).

OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka is located in a quiet back street yet the property is just a minute’s walk from Otsuka Station and a good choice of izakayas (pubs), bars and eateries. The hotel has 125 bedrooms centred around The Yagura Room, a spacious multi-purpose area which includes a café & bar, a relaxed lounge and a library full of information about the city. The design makes extensive use of Japanese materials such as cypress wood and tatami mats and the hotel features traditional Japanese comforts and customs, such as removing shoes before relaxing inside. OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka also has a large neighbourhood (KINJO) map on a magnetic wall and offers guided tours from £6 per person.

Lead-in price at OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka is from £92 per room per night (based on two sharing, room only).

The company plans to expand its new OMO brand to regional cities across Japan.
