GET TO KNOW NARA, JAPAN, WITH JW MARRIOTT®
Immerse yourself in traditional Japanese culture and history. At JW Marriott Hotel Nara, you’re just minutes from profound sites. See over 3,000 bronze lanterns at the Kasuga Taisha shrine, experience utmost serenity at Isuien Garden, and come face-to-face with loveable free-roaming deer at Nara Park. Once the sightseeing is over, see what makes Nara’s first international luxury hotel so special. Embrace mindfulness at the soothing SPA by JW, get your workout in at the 24-hour fitness center, or simply splash around with your family at the indoor pool. Whet your appetite with a variety of on-site tastes, including authentic teppanyaki, sushi, and kaiseki offerings at Azekura. Or try Eastern and Western fusion at multi-concept food theater, Silk Road Dinning.
SEE SENDAI’S STUNNING SIGHTS WITH WESTIN
Set in the top floors of Sendai Trust Tower, Sendai’s tallest building, The Westin Sendai provides remarkable panoramic views of downtown Sendai, mountains, and the Pacific Ocean. Known as the City of Trees, Sendai is an impeccable blend of nature and city life. Whether you’re exploring downtown, shopping or dining at Ichibancho Shopping Arcade, or discovering nearby temples like Rinnoji Temple with its outstanding garden, the hotel’s ideal location ensures that you’re never too far from home. With its on-site spa, four-star accommodations, and fulfilling WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio, the hotel feels a lot like home too. When hunger strikes, follow the delicious aromas wafting out of Symphony restaurant for delectable French cuisine, or check out Ichimuan for fresh Japanese flavors. Quench your thirst for imaginative drinks with Horizon, located on the 26th floor.
