TOKYO -- The Imperial Hotel Tokyo, a famed landmark slated to undergo a lengthy $2 billion reconstruction, revealed on Wednesday the new design for the main building, which will resemble a multitiered palace.

Paris-based architect Tsuyoshi Tane chose a beige color scheme for the stone exterior. The midrise hotel will look like a staircase, with the "first step" entrance facing Hibiya Park.
