Environment-friendly in-room amenities
mesm Tokyo, Autograph Collection
Our original amenities, such as shampoo and conditioner in collaboration with the skincare brand Bulk Homme, use glass refillable dispensers instead of disposable mini bottles.
In addition, our free drinks such as drinking water and beer in guest rooms use returnable bottles that can be reused.
We have achieved a paperless system by consolidating all kinds of information including hotel information, rules and regulations, room service menus, and newspapers on tablet terminals.

Restoration of Tidal Flats in Tokyo Bay

By developing tidal flats along the waterfront, we are working to conserve and restore a sustainable environment where shellfish and crustaceans, as well as a variety of other creatures that once inhabited Tokyo Bay, can live in abundance as part of a valuable initiative in the heart of the city. Visitors can participate in acuatic life observation, fishing, and other experiences to experience the efforts to revive the once-rich waters of Edomae, a precious waterfront known to be home to Tokyo's endangered species such as the flat-headed goby.
