of serviced apartments in Japan with the opening of the Fraser

stations, making the fashionable neighbourhoods of Roppongi, Shibuya and Ginza

said, “With domestic travel demand picking up, and discussions for travel bubbles underway, the opening of this property in Tokyo
is a harbinger for travel recovery. Over the past few months,
there has been a lot of conversation about how travel will look
post COVID19, and we’ve used the opportunity to redefine and
adopt new hospitality standards to ensure the safety and
well-being of all our guests and employees.”

surrounding premier district of Akasaka when designing the

in common public areas, access to masks for all guests, as well as
increased cleaning and disinfection of high contact points within
apartments,” said Ms Huang Meilin, General Manager of Fraser Suites
