Blending Cultures

The art of Blending Cultures

Okura’s Art of Blending Cultures delicately crafts a synergy between authentic Japanese traditions and modern Western luxury.

Let us show you how Hotel Okura Amsterdam has been blending the best of East and West for fifty years, entirely in the spirit of its namesake Baron Okura. This journey starts at the location of our hotel: a piece of Japan in the heart of the lively working-class borough of De Pijp in Amsterdam-Zuid. We would be happy to tell you how we combine the best of both worlds right here. Listen to our stories on The Art of Blending Cultures.

Sommelier Menno

The Best of East and West

Each season, Executive Chef Masanori Tomikawa designs a new menu comprising six to eight courses. As sommelier, Menno has the honour of being one of the first to taste them. It is a partnership that you wouldn’t usually come across in Japan, but which here in the Netherlands produces outstanding flavour combinations.
