Hotel: Sequence Miyashita Park
Sequence Miyashita Park is a hotel building connected to the complex and opened to guests on August 1st 2020. Based on the concept of a friendly connection with people, towns, and culture in their own style, it adopts a number of unique and convenient systems that have never existed in hotels.
Unlike any other hotel, this hotel introduced a flexible check-in and out where visitors can check in at 5pm and check out at 2pm on the following day. Having this flexibility, this extends the visitors free time. Plus, breakfast is available until noon so there is no rush in waking up early. Great hospitality for those late risers. What is more futuristic about this hotel is that there is also the stress-free latest ICT technology that does self-check-in, room check-out, and cashless support by face authentication.
Floors 6 to 17 are solely for hotel guests with rooms ranging from bunk beds to double and twin rooms to suites. However, the hotel's rooftop bars and a restaurant which is on the 18th and the 5th floor will be accessible to non-guests, so any visitors can sip on a fancy drink while enjoying the panoramic view of Shibuya in the background.
Best Photo Spot
The area around Shibuya station is still undergoing a massive redevelopment and many of the places are surrounded by skyscrapers. Luckily, the rooftop on Miyashita Park has few buildings to block the view, creating a great photo opportunity in the middle of a metropolis, especially after sunset. If you go low and find the right position, the new public art of the famous dog, the Hachi, looks as if he is howling into the night sky looking for his beloved master.
