Marunouchi Hotel, c. 1930.

The Marunouchi Hotel opened its doors in 1924, conveniently located 1/2-block from the north concourse of Tokyo Central Station, and was popular from the mid-1920s into the 1990s with out-of-town visitors doing business in the Marunouchi office district. During the Occupation (1945-1952), the hotel was requisitioned by Allied forces for use as officer billets.

“Hotel Marunouchi, located on ‘W’ Avenue and 4th Street, close to the Tokyo Central Station, is a good-sized place with 139 rooms, well patronized by Americans. Handily situated on the opposite side of the avenue is the Supper Club Marunouchi, with a dance orchestra and elaborate floor shows. On Thursday evenings the hotel puts on entertainment of its own, on its own premises.”

All the Best in Japan, Sydney Clark, 1958
