In the center of Tokyo’s fashion-focused Shibuya neighborhood, Trunk Hotel offers a truly “made in Japan” experience that draws from both the tradition and the trend of Tokyo. Throughout the 15-room hotel, contrasts create a conceptual dialogue. Think Japanese-Western fusion cuisine at the Trunk Kitchen restaurant that includes a chef’s table, a terrace, and a private dining room, and skewered “Shibuya soul food" at the Trunk Kushi stand, as well as Hojicha tea, coffee from the neighborhood, sake, shochu, and signature cocktails. Also on-property is a lifestyle store offering Tokyo-made keepsakes, locally sourced honey and craft beer, and more. Event spaces cater to functions of up to 250 and include four banquet halls, an exhibition space, a lounge, and a clean-lined wood and glass chapel on the rooftop, while the concierge organizes everything from tours of Tsukiji fish market to photography hikes up Mount Fuji and simply “hanging out with Sumo wrestlers”. Upcycled materials meet Japanese craftsmanship throughout the property, while artworks from local talents sit side-by-side with international names—all inside a geometric exterior of gray stone and tumbling greenery.

After graduating from Meiji University in Tokyo, Yoshitaka Nojiri founded his Take and Give Needs wedding business and rapidly expanded the company’s operations to the U.S., Taiwan, China, and Indonesia. As well as specializing in weddings, Nojiri also spent years consulting for the hospitality business, including international luxury hotels in Japan, and in the process realized that in his hometown of Tokyo there was no boutique hotel that he deemed “cool”. As President and CEO of Trunk, Nojiri aims to provide a coherent boutique hotel concept while alleviating social problems in Japan and beyond. In his free time, Nojiri can be found either with his family or on his surfboard.
