extremely convenient to get to this Asian shopping Mecca.

Family Crest and Ukiyoe in the Lobby
The golden lobby of the InterContinental Tokyo Bay is classical in style. On the wall behind the front desk, there are 27
gold squares. The unique and vivid patterns in each square are family crests – a Japan family symbol that began in the Heian Period. Japanese art is influenced by Zen culture, so the family crests emphasize on nature, quietness and conciseness. For example, the first crest on the left from the third row is Oda Nobunaga‘s, the Fiveleaf Papaya, and the fourth crest on the left from the second row is the crest of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Fiveseven Kiri. The sixth one on the left from the second row is Tokugawa Ieyasu‘s crest, Clover Leaf. The three heroes of the wartime all use plants as their
family crest, a practice completely different from the European crests of tigers, lions, eagles and other ferocious animals.
The magnificent ukiyoe screen in the middle of the lobby is the heavyweight of the hotel‘s art works and was purchased at an auction by the hotel owner, Tsukada Global Holdings Inc..This screen is called ”Inside and outside of the capital” and depicts the complete picture of Kyoto in the Edo period of the 18th century in Japan. The Arashiyama, Nijo Castle, Kinkakuji Temple, NishiHongan Temple are all identifiable.
Through the lobby‘s family crests collection and ukiyoe paintings, these two Japanese art works greet guests at the InterContinental Tokyo Bay and send them into the enchanting atmosphere of Japanese history and culture instantly.
