Why we choose Mandarin Oriental Tokyo

A dramatic hotel, with a 35th floor lobby and Mt. Fuji within clear view

  • A choice of six restaurants—one of which is Michelin-starred
  • Pick from 20 Asian teas at Sense Tea Corner
  • Wellness programs include private meditation, Tai Chi and aroma stretch classes

Mandarin Oriental has posh properties all over the world, and the company prides itself on combining local flavor with its signature Eastern style. Some combos are harder to pull off than others, but the Tokyo location is a natural fit. Everything about the hotel is serene and harmonious, reflecting Japan’s legendary artisanship in a real—rather than fabricated—way.

What you need to know about the hotel

This small, urban luxury hotel boasts oh-my-goodness panoramas of Tokyo

  • Views are king here, so it’s no surprise that even the swimming pool has glass walls to better enjoy the sights
  • Puff, puff, hooray: The Oriental Lounge’s Cigar Cellar is stocked with an extensive selection of humidified cigars
  • Over two hours you get 20 mini-plates of molecular cuisine delicacies at the eight-seat Tapas Molecular Bar

Sleek and stylish, this is Tokyo as you’ve probably imagined it. The 178 rooms and suites are among the largest in the city, and each has glass exterior walls that overlook the spectacle of Tokyo. The hotel itself is made up of a Mitsui Honkan section built in 1929 in an American neo-classical architectural style and the Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower, a modern 38-story tower building.

What is there to say about the nine restaurants and lounges, except they’ve probably won every award out there. Condé Nast Traveller and Wine Spectator have been very good to these eateries, and it isn’t hard to figure out why. French, Cantonese, Italian, pastries—even molecular cuisine—the range is unbelievable, and they hit all the right notes every time

Where is it and what's nearby

The Nihonbashi area is the historical, cultural and commercial heartof Tokyo

  • Ever since Mitsukoshi opened a fabric shop here more than 300 years ago, Nihonbashi has been synonymous with the kimono
  • Nihonbashi is a great place to experience traditional Japanese living through centuries-old shops, dining and cultural offerings
  • Take a guided tour of Tsukiji Market, the world’s largest food hall, and learn to make sushi from an expert

Soaring high above the city, this hotel is all about urban appeal. You can take in the Imperial Palace garden, Sumida River and shimmering Tokyo Bay in a single view and walk to main shopping and entertainment destinations, as well as many famous sights.

But what makes the Mandarin Oriental so interesting is its Nihonbashi location, an area that’s been strongly influenced by the Edo Period (1603-1867). Though it’s a modern commercial center, it’s also a place where ancient shops offer traditional Japanese handicrafts like lacquerware, washi papers, kimonos and fans

How to enjoy Tokyo

Curiously addictive, Tokyo somehow manages to blend throbbing neon and a slightly workaholic-edged mania, with peaceful parks adorned with pink blossoms or crimson maples, exquisite manners and unexpected architecture

  • No trip to Tokyo would be complete without at least one night out in a karaoke bar. So go on and belt out a number (you know you want to)
  • For stunning 360° views of Tokyo, visit the observatory decks of the Skytree. At 634 meters, it is the tallest building in Japan
  • Enjoy! Tokyo is the world’s gourmet capital with more Michelin stars than anywhere else in the world

For full on, in-your-face, city action, with impossibly large crowds scurrying who knows where under crazy-paving style walls and towers of flashing advertising hoardings, head to Tokyo’s Shibuya. You will actually feel the adrenaline kick in as you attempt the pedestrian crossing at Hachiko. This sense of excitement will only enhance your shopping experience there, with the multitude of shops selling funky clothes and intriguing gadgets.

In contrast to bustle of Shibuya is the zen calm of the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. The garden has everything you’d want to find in a Japanese park with wooden arched bridges, beautiful maples and a lovely teahouse. Come evening, head to the upscale Ginza quarter for the best sushi in the world, or kaiseki, Japan’s own haute cuisine.
