Takashi Murakami fans able to travel to Tokyo can now live in the famed Japanese artist’s colorful pop-art universe, by checking in to the Grand Hyatt Tokyo’s Takashi Murakami Flower Art Gallery Room. A collaboration between the hotel and the Roppongi Hills Takashi Murakami Project, the hotel package includes a minimum JPY 450,000 (USD 4,260) per night stay in the Chairman suite, now decked out with 14 commissioned Murakami artworks featuring his signature smiling flowers. Other themed services in the package include afternoon tea and dinner sets, nail art service, merchandise, among others. The offer lasts until June 1, but for those who don’t want to fork out thousands, the Roppongi Hills project includes other attractions around the neighborhood, including a 10-meter golden sculpture, Flower Parent and Child (2020), in Roku-Roku Plaza, on view until May.
