Large read and white parrot installations are swooping down upon Park Hotel Tokyo!

With winter's cold embrace, the streets fill with a crisp air making for the year's most vividly splendid season. At our Tokyo Shiodome hotel in celebration of the arrival of winter's sunny weather, a flock of cute artwork parrots decorated in Japan's traditionally auspicious colors, red and white, will gather in the lounge.

Displaying her creations are Wakako Kawakami, an artist that since making her debut in the 90's has caused a stir in the art world with her numerous large-scale installations. In recent years, she has continued to produce striking installations such as filling galleries with life-sized artwork parrots and making flocks of parrots suddenly appear in parks and the spaces between buildings. Popular with both adults and children, Kawakami's parrot art provides more than something to be seen and experienced doubling as an impressive and crowd-pleasing photo backdrop.

Why not celebrate Christmas and New Year this winter together with Kawakami's artwork parrots!
