IHG Hotels in Japan Earn Record Fourth Michelin Star

The stars are shining brightly for IHG’s hotels in Japan, with the addition of a record 4th Michelin Star to its restaurant trophy cabinet.

 ANA Crowne Plaza Osaka is the latest hotel in the group to earn a prestigious Michelin Star for ‘Maison Tateru Yoshino’, impressively taking the accolade in its first year of opening, and making it the first Crowne Plaza branded hotel in the world to earn a Michelin Star.

The restaurant joins InterContinental Osaka’s ‘Pierre’ restaurant, headed by IHG’s home grown Chef de Cuisine Susumu Okubo, which earned One Star for a second consecutive year, and legendary chef Pierre Gagnaire’s self-named restaurant at ANA InterContinental Tokyo, which has earned Two Michelin Stars for the seventh year in a row since it opened in 2010.

Earning a Michelin Star is no easy task, it means consistently creating innovative food, providing the highest standards of service, and being truly passionate about the guest experience. These three restaurants exemplify the best in dining experience, drawing on the latest gastronomic techniques and trends, as well as adding Chefs’ own personal flair to the food, service and ambience.

Chef Tateru Yoshino from ANA Crowne Plaza Osaka, who is famous for preparing traditional French cuisine incorporating an array of select vegetables to artistically accent each course, said, “It is a huge honour to earn a coveted Michelin Star in our restaurant’s first year. Our service team’s attention to detail provides each guest with a memorable dining experience for lunch or dinner, and the striking white and gold interior by designer Toshio Nagao creates an elegant and sophisticated space inspired by my native Kikai Island.”

InterContinental and ANA Crowne Plaza. Hans Heijligers, CEO of IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan reflected on the achievements, saying “This is truly brilliant recognition for the amazing culinary talent we have in our hotels. There is good reason why so many Japanese guests and visitors, including myself, count these restaurants amongst their favourites.”

IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan, the Joint Venture between IHG and airline ANA, currently has 33 hotels operating under five brands in Japan.
