'Under the Mistletoe,' Sweet Secrets' Charity Auction, chef hotline at Park Hyatt Tokyo

Executive Pastry Chef Anthony Stettler


The Park Hyatt Tokyo this year will introduce Christmas “Under the Mistletoe”—a unique series of interactive events tailored for the holiday season. Beyond its traditions of bestowing good luck on couples kissing underneath, mistletoe is also a symbol of love, peace and goodwill.

“Kissing Under the Mistletoe” Photo Contest

At the hotel’s Delicatessen, there will be with a special bench tucked neatly under an inviting mistletoe arrangement. Visitors will be free to take pictures at this cozy spot starting on Saturday, Dec 1 and continuing through to Tuesday, Dec 25.

Furthermore, the hotel will be hosting a competition on Saturday, Dec 22 and Monday, Dec 24 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. for the most romantic photo taken under the mistletoe display. A professional cameraman will be on site to take photos of friends, family and loved ones who wish to capture a special Christmas moment together. The winning photo from both days will receive a complimentary dinner for two at New York Grill, surrounded by dazzling views of the nightscape.

Following completion of the contest, winners will be announced on the hotel’s official Facebook (facebook.com/ParkHyattTokyo) and twitter (twitter.com/ParkHyattTokyo) pages. Photos from the event may also be introduced via these pages.
