If you’re a traveller with a sense of adventure then the Far East is a part of the world you absolutely must see. Japan is a particular jewel of East Asia and a remarkable place to visit. Culture shock is the phrase perhaps most often used by visitors to this intriguing island, but this is no bad thing.

History, a fascinating culture, amazing food and drink and eye-popping modern countryside and cityscapes make Japan stand apart from other travel destinations. And if you want to experience the country in the most comfortable way possible, you’ll be pleased to know that Japan is no stranger to luxury. So we’ve hand-picked the very best boutique and luxury hotels in Tokyo, so you can have a fabulous and luxury stay in Japan.

The Peninsula, Tokyo
Modern and contemporary with Japanese accents, this gracious free-standing hotel offers 314 spacious guestrooms, including 47 suites. Each guestroom and suite blends traditional Peninsula standards of comfort and innovative technology with elements of Japanese heritage and culture. Taking the design brief “international in design, but Japanese by inspiration”, interior designer Yukio Hashimoto intertwines rich earth tone colors, woods, lacquer, marble and stone with design and functionality to create a luxurious living environment.
Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo
Conveniently located in the heart of the city, Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo enjoys a bird’s eye view of the breathtaking city skyline. Surrounded by the chic shops and offices of Nihonbashi, the hotel exudes crisp, cutting-edge style with state-of-the-art technology, a renowned spa, award-winning restaurants and impeccable service.
Tokyo’s original – and best – boutique hotel lies smack in the middle of the city’s design district, in an affluent residential neighbourhood. It’s a bit off the map, but with that comes a taste of Tokyo’s quieter, more livable side. Opened in 2003 in what was then an ageing business hotel (the facade remains), the Claska has stunning Japanese modern rooms with crisp lines and a cool palette; some have private terraces, tatami floors or glass-cased bathrooms. There’s a rooftop terrace and a hip lounge in the lobby that serves an excellent traditional Japanese breakfast; both are popular with locals, too.
