Built in 1960, the 10-story hotel was initially the only 4-star hotel in Tokyo. Rooms rate c. 1961 (when US$1 = ¥360) were single-room ¥1,800-¥2,200, Japanese-style rooms ¥3,500-5,000, and the deluxe double suite cost ¥20,000. During the summer months, the hotel’s roof-top garden served a cold buffet and beer affording an unexcelled, panoramic night view of Tokyo from 11-stories up. The roof-top also held a golf practice range. The Ginza Tokyu Hotel closed in May 2001.
