AFTER A THREE-YEAR, 110-billion-yen renovation, Tokyo’s grandest of dames is back looking as elegant as ever before—intentionally. The former lobby was so beloved that petitions were raised to preserve its unique Japanese modernist design. The recent revamp introduced a spruced-up version of its former self, including the iconic plum petal–shaped chairs and hexagonal paper lanterns, as well as a completely new wing, the 41-story Okura Prestige Tower.
