    Down a secluded backstreet in Tokyo’s central Kagurazaka neighborhood, Trunk House is an exclusive slice of hyperlocal immersion that goes against the typical conservatism of Japanese hospitality. This one-suite wonder—a micro-hotel at its absolute best—plays host to a miniature karaoke-disco-bar and an open kitchen and dining room, with a private chef on hand to create anything from local Japanese dishes to formal French cuisine. All this is wrapped up inside a wooden house that was previously a traditional Ryotei restaurant and geisha practice room. The building’s history has also been incorporated into the design of Trunk, for example the original black walls of the Ryotei remain, while designer pieces—such as the tea sets by Tom Sachs, the dining furniture, sofa, and side table by Stephen Kenn, and lighting fixtures by Jean Prouvé—add a contrasting contemporary design dialogue. Upon stepping outside, guests find themselves walking the narrow streets of an Edo Period entertainment district now known by locals as “a little Kyoto in Tokyo”.

    ROOMS & SUITES

    Comprising only one suite, the property resembles a private residence and is rented in its entirety. Guests are encouraged to make the most of the on-hand chef by hosting dinner parties—topped off with Japanese-style karaoke in the disco-bar, of course.

    Made By Originals

    Yoshitaka Nojiri

    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.
