    Hotel Park Hyatt, Tokyo

    Fodors

    “One of the most magnificent properties in Tokyo, the Park Hyatt hovers over Shinjuku boasting some of the best views, finest restaurants, incredible bars, and stellar service. Refined and remarkable, this high-priced property just might be worth every penny.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Tokyo.

  • 4.6 Ritz Carlton Tokyo

    The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Tokyo

    CNN

    “This five-star stunner takes up the top nine floors of the 53-story Midtown Tower (along with the first three levels), with views rivaling those of the Park Hyatt. The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo has a range of accommodation options, including a Japanese-style room.”

  • 4.6 Capitol Tokyo

    Shortlisted in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Tokyo, Japan.

  • 4.6 Peninsula Hotel Tokyo

    Hotel The Peninsula, Tokyo

    CNN

    “A Peninsula hotel is like that frustrating friend who, no matter how hard you look, has no flaws. Not one. The Peninsula Tokyo is located in the city’s ritzy Ginza district, a stroll away from designer boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants.”

  • 4.1 Hotel Claska Tokyo

    Hotel Claska, Tokyo

    CNN

    “The Claska hotel is for travelers who crave designer digs. Its 18 rooms are divided into four categories: Japanese modern, tatami, weekly residence and “DIY” — the latter being custom creations of Japanese designers.”

  • 4.7 Mandrin Oriental Tokyo

    Hotel Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo

    Frommers

    “Located in the historic Nihonbashi district just steps away from the venerable Mitsukoshi department store, this sophisticated hotel occupies the top floors of the soaring Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower, affording outstanding city views from its 38th-floor lobby, its restaurants, and guest rooms.”

    Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Tokyo.

  • 4.6 Trunk Hotel Tokyo

    Trunk Hotel, Tokyo

    CN Traveler

    “Pocketed in between Shibuya and Harajuku, Trunk (Hotel)’s two low-rise buildings are four stories each. Hardly a stone’s throw from some of Tokyo’s most hipster streets, it’s a high cost, but you’re really booking a whole lifestyle.”

    Featured in CN Traveler’s 2018 Hot List

  • 4.4 Hostel Nui Tokyo

    Hostel Nui, Tokyo

    Lonely Planet

    “In a former warehouse, the Nui hostel has raised the bar for stylish budget digs in Tokyo. High ceilings mean bunks you can comfortably sit up in and there is an enormous shared kitchen and work space.”

  • 4.7 Hanare Tokyo

    Guesthouse Hanare, Tokyo

    Lonely Planet

    “A project of Tokyo University of the Arts, Hanare offers five immaculate tatami rooms in an old dormitory house, which has been tastefully upgraded to retain original features such as wooden beams.”

  • 4.4 Westin Hotel Tokyo

    The Westin Hotel, Tokyo

    CNN

    “The folks who build Westin hotels snagged themselves a location to brag about when they set up shop in Tokyo’s residential Ebisu neighborhood. Sure, these are not luxury rooms, but they’re nothing to complain about and just a few strides from Yebisu Garden Place.”

  • 4.6 Hoshinoya Tokyo

    Hotel Hoshinoya, Tokyo

    Lonely Planet

    “In creating its brand-new contemporary ryokan in the heart of Tokyo, Hoshinoya has barely put a foot wrong. This ryokan is all about insulating yourself from the city in a building that incorporates timeless craftsmanship and the best of traditional Japanese design and service.”

About Tokyo

Known officially as the Tokyo Metropolis, this city is the capital of Japan, a role it has held since 1869. The city is the seat of the Emperor of Japan, the Japanese Government and the National Diet. The city is unique from a typical city; it is not even officially a city. Instead, Tokyo is a metropolitan prefecture which combines the elements of a city and a prefecture.

Tokyo is one of the largest urban agglomeration in the world and one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. In 2011, the city hosted 51 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, the highest number at the time which further reflects Tokyo as being a major economic, investment and finance center.

Tokyo was ranked first by TripAdvisor’s World City Survey in the category of “Best Overall Experience” in the year 2014. This survey combines the nightlife, shopping, local public transportation, and cleanliness of streets which all suggest that Tokyo is indeed a tourism haven.

The Michelin Guide has awarded Tokyo by far the highest Michelin Stars of any city in the world. Tokyo is visited by millions of people throughout the year annually.
