Best Western Expands Japan Portfolio with New Hotel in Osaka

Best Western is set to expand its portfolio of hotels in Japan with the 1 September opening of the Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto.

Nestled in downtown Osaka, the modern new-build hotel is located just two minutes away from JR Tsukamoto Station, which provides direct links to the Japanese cultural capital Kyoto, and is only two stops away from Shin Osaka Station, where guests can catch the Shinkansen bullet train to Tokyo.

Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto features 105 rooms, a restaurant serving local and international cuisine, a 24-hour business center and laundry services.

The hotel is Best Western’s second property in the city, following the Best Western Hotel Fino Osaka Shinsaibashi.

“We are delighted to open Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto as we bolster our presence in Japan’s key gateway cities and most popular destinations,” said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s Managing Director of International Operations – Asia. “As the second most populous city in Japan, a key business travel hub, and the country’s culinary capital, Osaka is a glittering global metropolis.”

Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto is one of three new Japanese hotels signed by Best Western Hotels & Resorts earlier this year. The other new properties are located in Sapporo and at Yamagata Airport, and are due to launch in the coming months.

“With Japan preparing for a surge of international visitor arrivals over the coming years, as it hosts the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and Summer Olympics in 2020, Osaka will play a major role in the country’s tourism development. Best Western Osaka Tsukamoto will provide the city’s rising number of visitors with a contemporary, convenient and well-connected midscale hotel option in the heart of the city. We look forward to welcoming the first guests to this exciting new property on 1 September and continuing along Osaka’s exciting journey in the month and years ahead,” Olivier added.

Japan welcomed a record 24 million international visitors last year, and the Japanese government is now targeting 40 million arrivals by 2020 - the year the country hosts the Olympic Games.
