JW Marriott Hotel Nara Appearance

Opening of Marriott International’s first luxury hotel brand in Japan and the first foreign-owned luxury hotel in Nara Prefecture


JW Marriott Hotel Nara is an internationally-acclaimed hotel that is the core of Omiya Dori New Hotel and Exchange Center Project, a large-scale redevelopment project undertaken by Nara Prefecture which combines convention facilities, the NHK Nara Broadcasting Hall and other facilities.
The hotel is located in the heart of Nara City and offers excellent access to Japan’s most famous historic sites, including the Heijokyu historical sites, Todaiji Temple, and the ancient tombs of Japanese emperors. It is here on this land characterized by high potential, that we are building a high-end hotel based on international standards. It will have 157 rooms which can be used for medium- to long-term stays. We aim to have the hotel serve as a valuable destination and as a new destination for people coming to Nara, a place which boasts large numbers of visitors due to its rich tourism resources.

In addition, the Mori Trust Group is also proceeding with the Nara Yoshikien Garden Plan (Tentative Name), a new hotel development being undertaken by Mori Trust under the public-private partnership project called the Project for the Preservation, Management and Utilization of the Areas Around Yoshikien. We will make the most of our know-how and contribute to Nara’s further development as a city for international tourism.
