From November 12 to December 25, Grand Hyatt Tokyo will host its annual holiday charity program under this year’s theme “Home for the Holidays”. The holiday season is a time when your home becomes a special place for family, friends and guests to gather, relax and enjoy holiday festivities together.

With the support of non-profit organizations, Kids Earth Fund (KEF) and Re Kikou, the charity program will feature a beautifully-decorated lobby with photo spots and donation boxes, holiday hampers and charitable ornaments for sale to support people with disabilities, people displaced by conflict around the world as well as children in regions hit by devastating natural disasters.

Since March 2011, Grand Hyatt Tokyo has striven to support the communities affected by these catastrophic disasters through monetary donations, charitable contributions and volunteer efforts. As of January 2021, a total of more than JPY 62 million has been donated, and the hotel hopes to continue increasing the amount each year.
