President Masayuki Satomi / General Manager Hisashi Omanuma) welcomes customers with a number of commitments that resonate with the dynamism and wavelength of Tokyo's "now" as a creative hotel. We sell special drinks. Mesm Tokyo, which has the theme of "TOKYO WAVES" as a seaside hotel located 5 minutes by car from Ginza, will deliver the latest Tokyo experience. The summer vacation accommodation plan includes hands-on learning where you can learn from various perspectives together with Ms. Yuko Tajima, research director of the National Museum of Nature and Science's Vertebrate Research Group, who supervised the special exhibition "The Sea: The Source of Life." We will enjoy learning about our fellow mammals that live in the sea, using valuable teaching materials such as baleen whales, sea lions, and dolphins, as well as useful knowledge for free research during summer vacation and for deepening adult education.
