Prepare to be tickled pink this month as The Peninsula Tokyo celebrates the tenth year of its epic Peninsula in Pink campaign – a global movement of breast cancer awareness – with an array of fun-filled and fundraising festivities.
The grandest and most impressive of all the October initiatives has got to be the hotel’s unmistakable exterior, blushing like a sakura blossom with a special illumination bathing the outside of the building in a delightful pink light. Or, venture inside to pick up an original pink pin, for sale at ¥500, which will go towards the Japan Association of Breast Cancer Screening and Keep A Breast Japan.
Better still, The Peninsula is offering an array of exclusive activities for the cause. Cha-ficionados will love the limited-edition Pink Afternoon Tea, set in the hotel’s plush Lobby. Toothsome tidbits – including warm scones with jam and clotted cream, as well as diet-derailing pastries and cakes – have been delicately crafted from seasonal ingredients, and perfectly paired with The Peninsula’s original black tea, or one of a selection of organic blends by Art of Tea.
Sweet tooth sated, why not treat yourself to a Pretty in Pink facial and body treatment? The Peninsula’s swoon-worthy Spa will be offering this one-off, 1h 50min head-to-toe pamper package, including an invigorating full-body scrub and mask, a zen-inducing aromatherapy body massage, and head rub by one of their acclaimed and highly-trained therapists. Or, if you want to treat a loved-one instead, gift certificates are also available for family and friends. Feeling good...never felt so good!
