Brand new hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. Their restaurant has a very nice vibe. It's a bit of a walk from Hibiya subway line, but the location feels relatively quiet compared to the busier parts of Tokyo. I would highly recommend this hotel and would strongly consider staying here ...
A great hotel with a huge lobby and beautifully decorated for the new year. Many stores & restaurants in the basement/lobby level. A convenience store as well as a Bakery/ Deli for those who want to snack or not eat in restaurants. The concierge service was far the best in our travels. It was a bit ...
The only thing I didn't like was the room was kind of small, but that's just my general thought about room sizes in Japan. Staffs were friendly and accommodating. Check-in and out were extremely fast and efficient. My favorite thing about the hotel is probably the location - it's very conveniently ...
I was surprised at how comfortable the bed was, it was actually the best sleep I got in Japan! They provide everything you would need to get ready for bed and in the morning, so you do not have to worry about getting into your suitcase for toiletries. They have a convenient cafe if you want something ...

This island nation sports a complex climate. Northern regions are mountainous with distinct seasons, and the south is balmy, with its palm-studded islands and beach vibe. Cities facing the Sea of Japan get hard-core winters when Siberian air clashes with warm Pacific fronts. The result: huge snowfalls, ski resorts and cold snaps. The Pacific Ocean side sees less snow, while Honshu's big cities (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Kyoto) are chilly. Summers? Hot and sticky, with the exception of Hokkaido. June is Japan's brief rain season, and typhoon season is from August to October.
Tokyo, Kyoto, Yokohama are always buzzing, but nation-wide, peak holiday seasons are Golden Week (late April to early May) and the mid-August O-Bon (Festival of the Dead). But during Shogatsu (New Year) Japan basically shuts down.
Far beyond quirky, Tokyo takes the cake for its nothing-short-of-awesome theme restaurants. You'll find wacky combos, from medical/prison themes to vampire cafes (blood orange cocktails!) and oversized/miniature worlds inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
Don't rely on credit cards -- they're more the exception than the rule. While most department stores, major hotels and some restaurants accept them, most businesses do not. In Japan, cash-and-carry is best.
This fifth-generation shop attracts visitors from all over Japan. Kimono clad waitresses serve classic dishes such as sashimi yuba, grilled nori and soba (both hot and cold). This place as delicious as it is authentic, and listen carefully: Your orders are sung to the kitchen.
Don't be alarmed if a little culture shock strikes. Japan is just as mysterious as it is accessible. Expect profound politeness and an almost pious sense of order. Money is exchanged on small trays (by hand is rude). Sugar is organized: liquid for cold drinks (doesn't sink), cubes for hot. And umbrellas have street cred -- the Japanese park them outside.
Elvis has made it to Japan. Lookalikes channel The King with pompadours, tight black tees and swiveling hips. Even the elite get giddy.
