Ritz-Carlton's base inside Tokyo’s tallest skyscraper houses a 200-year-old teahouse, one of the city’s premier spas, and dramatic Imperial Palace views
Using ingredients sourced from Tsukiji Fish Market, a meticulously prepared meal at Azure 45, this hotel’s famed French bistro, is an apt metaphor for its elegant Euro-Japanese underpinnings. In a past life, these 20 acres were the site of a feudal family’s villa (one of the building’s retaining walls still displays the original residence’s rock work). Some of the newest suites here, decked with futon-style bed frames, rice-filled pillows, tatami floors and floral fusuma paper sliding doors, were inspired by traditional tea rooms, while others are more Art Deco-inflected, with glossy flourishes and minimalist lines. If you opt to swim laps in the 65-foot pool, you’ll be treated to Mt. Fuji views from the mullioned windows, though if it’s a more relaxed dip you’re craving, you’re better off at the circular plunge pool at the spa-in-the-sky (it’s perched on the 46th floor). Other highlights here include a cedar dry sauna, a traditional stone massage, and a “jet-lag reviver,” featuring restorative aromatherapy oils, fits the bill—serious spa devotees may want to consider booking the Fuji Spa Suite, a VIP-worthy treatment room with its own bathing area.
In the Area
The hotel’s enviable Roppongi location—long regarded Tokyo’s culture and entertainment hub—means you’re just a five-minute walk from institutions like the Suntory Museum of Art, the site of weekly tea ceremony performances (the concierge can pre-book a viewing spot for you) and the National Art Center, which eschews a permanent collection in favor of 14,000 square feet of exhibition space. For a glimpse of feudal Edo—Tokyo’s former name—make your way to nearby Asakusa, home to Sensoji Temple and the city’s largest spread of souvenir stalls, which hawk bean curd cakes, woodblock prints, and parasols, among other traditional goodies.
