Landmark hotel surrounded by a 400-year-old garden, with a choice of 24 restaurants, a Zen spa and Tokyo's biggest outdoor pool
Built for the Olympics in 1964, the landmark New Otani Hotel has played host to royalty and politicians, has been a venue for several G7 summits and was a filming location for the James Bond film You Only Live Twice. Surrounded by a 400-year-old Japanese garden (home to a temple, a fish pond and a waterfall), the property has 1,479 guestrooms divided among three buildings. It also features the biggest outdoor pool in Tokyo. The rooms come with kingsize beds, slick recessed lighting and big picture windows with city views; some have views of Mount Fuji. The property boasts no fewer than 24 restaurants; highlights include Top, an Italian/Chinese/Malaysian restaurant on the 40th floor, and Sekishin-tei, an upscale teppanyaki joint in a leafy corner of the garden. There are eight bars, so there’s no shortage of drinking options, either. Sip a glass of bubbly at the Sky, a revolving bar on the 17th floor, or sample one of more than 100 cocktails at Trader Vic’s, a Polynesian-themed tavern. Treat your better half (and yourself) to a couples aromatherapy massage at the Golden Spa, or take a tour of the rooftop rose garden, which was designed by eminent English florist Kenneth Turner.
In the Area
Tokyo is a sprawling, and sometimes confusing, metropolis. Get your bearings at the Tokyo Sky Tree, the world’s tallest freestanding tower. During the day the 2,080-foot-high observation deck affords views as far as 60 miles — all the way to Mount Fuji. For a glimpse of a 1,500-year-old Japanese tradition, go to Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo’s premier sumo wrestling arena. Or get involved in a more recent Tokyo tradition at Smash Hits, the world's largest karaoke bar.
