Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, and Mitsui Fudosan, a Japanese real estate development company, plan to build a luxury hotel in Tokyo's Otemachi business district.

The hotel, which is part of a mixed-use development, is set to open in 2020.

Once opened, it will have approximately 190 guest rooms.

The hotel will occupy the upper six floors of a 39-story office tower, and offer panoramic views of the city.

The hotel will be in close proximity to transit routes, shopping, dining and the nightlife of downtown Tokyo.

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts president and CEO J. Allen Smith said: "A landmark hotel in one of the best locations in Tokyo, this will be a striking property that speaks to our confidence in this city as we meet the growing demand of Four Seasons guests and international luxury travellers visiting Tokyo.

"We have been seeking the right opportunity to extend our presence here and are excited to work in partnership with Mitsui Fudosan to introduce a new Four Seasons experience in Tokyo, one that that will appeal to business and leisure travellers, as well as the domestic market.

"Japanese outbound travellers represent a significant number of Four Seasons guests around the world and we look forward to offering our Japanese guests a new opportunity to experience Four Seasons at home."

 Four Seasons has operated hotels in Tokyo for more than 25 years and will be extending its presence in Japan with the opening of Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto later this year.
