In 2020, Olympics will be held in Tokyo.
Japan aims to become a “Tourism-Oriented Country” to accept 40 million tourists from around the world in 2020.
It causes a shortage of hotels in Japan everywhere, even Tokyo has also same problem. Japan tries to solve it by increasing the number of hotels for tourists from all over the world. It can be said this hotel (Shinjuku Miyabi Residence) is one of the solutions for the social problem Japan is facing. This hotel is expecting guests mainly from Europe, USA, Asia, non-Japanese as targets, so that the design needs to attract them by Japanese culture.
