Hoshinoya Tokyo, Japan

HOSHINOYA Tokyo lies in the city’s economic center In contrast with its grand facade, the 17-story hotel offers a relaxed ambience with a sense of intimacy and  traditional Japanese hospitality. Each floor is an exclusive domain, accessible only by the guests staying there, and with a dedicated staff in place to meet their every need–as well as to maintain the elegant customs that have been honored for centuries at traditional Japanese inns known as ryokan. Rooms are cleanly designed, furnished minimally with pristine futons and other essentials. A deep bathtub invites guests to take a relaxing soak.

Every ryokan has an ochanoma—a lounge that serves as an exclusive living and dining room for guests staying there. The restaurant is no exception. It offers surprising ryokan cuisine that brings out the richness in ingredients that normally go unappreciated. The ryokan also connects directly to a restaurant complex offering a wide variety of fare.
