Abstract: This study will explore balls at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo from 1891 to 1926. The first ball was held on November 3, 1891 when the Minister of Foreign Affairs sponsored a gala party at the Imperial Hotel to celebrate the Emperor's birthday. On this occasion, members of Japanese high society and foreign diplomatic officials were invited and they danced the Quadrills, the Waltz, the Caledonian and other dances. This party to celebrate the Emperor's birthday was held at the hotel every year until 1903. The second Imperial Hotel was completed on September 1, 1923 and it was designed by the American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). The hotel had a beautiful ballroom called the Peacock Room and it became the venue for many balls, such as the St. Valentine's, Christmas, and various charity balls. Partygoers enjoyed dancing the One step, the Two step, and the Foxtrot which were very popular at the time. The Imperial Hotel always produced beautiful and elegant balls. There, it was a special world in Japan, far from everyday life of ordinary Japanese people.
