Imperial Hotel, Osaka

Peace and tranquility in bustling Osaka
The Imperial Hotel is something of an institution in Japan — its very name conjures up images of royal visits by important dignitaries and world-famous guests from the realms of politics, film and music. Imperial Hotel, Osaka, an outpost of the venerable brand, was built in 1996 and continues in the same tradition of meticulous service and luxury.

It’s conveniently situated in a scenic location on the cherry-blossom-lined banks of the Okawa River, only a short stroll away from Osaka Castle Park. A bastion of peace and tranquility, Imperial Hotel, Osaka is an ideal place to unwind and recharge in one of the quieter corners of this sometimes-frenetic city. Yet it can still be easily reached by either train or the hotel’s complimentary 15-minute shuttle service to and from Osaka Station.
