Meet the Team
Yoshihide HamamotoExecutive Pastry Chef
Influenced by his Japanese homeland and its intricate, delicate pastry traditions, Chef Hamamoto brings a meticulous approach to his craft. Despite the artistry of his creations, he is a firm believer in letting natural Japanese flavours define the overall taste of his desserts – especially the fruit. His signature strawberry shortcake, a fragrant vanilla sponge layered with Chantilly cream and topped with fresh Japanese strawberries, is a delicate balance of flavours that he has spent his career perfecting.
“I am happiest when eating cake, so I simply wish to bring a smile to others with my creations too.”

Nicolai Bergmann Afternoon Tea
Join us for a flower-themed afternoon tea in collaboration with renowned Danish floral artist Nicolai Bergmann this autumn. Echoing designs from Nicolai’s famous flower box to the moss ball inspired by the Japanese garden at our Hotel, our Executive Pastry Chef Yoshihide Hamamoto expresses Nicolai’s exquisite world view in an array. Invite someone special and share the beauty of autumn, overlooking the view of 800-year-old Shakusui-en pond garden. Weekdays JPY 5,300/weekends and holidays JPY 5,900; 15% service charge and consumption tax will be added.
More Dining Options
Follow the pathway through our 12th-century ‘Shakusui-en’ pond garden and cross the glass bridge for a traditional Japanese experience at Fuju lounge. Fuju serves expertly crafted local sweets and matcha tea. In the evenings, sip a glass of Kyoto sake or premium Champagne while on the terrace, which provides the perfect opportunity to gaze at the pond’s reflection.
Whether you want to share a romantic dinner in the privacy of your room, need to feed a hungry family or are looking for quiet evening in, our in-room menus feature Japanese and international favourites, as well as items from Brasserie, all just a tap away on your room’s iPad.
The vision of Master Chef Rei Masuda, our one-Michelin-starred restaurant offers an intimate and interactive experience as you watch as our master chefs create stunning dishes made with top-quality ingredients flown in each day from Tokyo’s iconic Tsukiji market – either at the 200-year-old, 10-seat Hinoki counter, or in one of our two private-dining rooms. * Please note that hours may change without notice.
