Lobby Concert 25

【Hotel Okura Tokyo Lobby Concert 25 Vol.378】
The Lobby Concert 25 started as part of Mécénat activities in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of Hotel Okura Tokyo in 1987. We provide our lobby space for free concerts on the 25th of every month to support musicians’ activities. The Lobby Concert has been supervised by Mr. Naoto Otomo since the hotel’s 50th anniversary in 2012 to make up programs. We took the opportunity of the 55th anniversary to establish the Hotel Okura Tokyo Cultural Fund in the hope that exchanges through corporate patronage will create a prosperous future. Donation collected at the lobby concert venue will be donated to organizations that conduct activities specializing in "music".
