5 Luxury Experiences in Tokyo

Tokyo is a Japanese metropolis with a population of around 14 million people. The largest city in Japan is still a destination that holds intrigue, mystery and a sense of the unknown, as traditional Japanese lifestyle fuses with ultra-modern advances.

It is a fascinating place to visit and one with many luxury experiences that visitors can enjoy.

Relax in a spa


Tokyo has a number of wonderfully luxurious spas where you can relax, unwind and have a number of treatments to leave you feeling like the very best version of yourself.

Fit in a visit to the Mizuki Spa at the Comrad Tokyo, and book in for an exclusive Mizuki Spirit treatment. This includes a fragrant Japanese hinokibath, traditional tea ceremony, bamboo treatment, relaxing massage and a cleansing facial. Afterwards you can chill out in the central relaxation room and take a dip in one of the pools or hot tubs.

Culinary experiences


Tokyo has an incredible number of Michelin-starred restaurants, and in 2013 it even surpassed Paris as the culinary capital of the world.

Be sure to visit Kanda, a Japanese restaurant that was awarded three Michelin stars in 2009. At this restaurant, the menu changes with the seasons and the food is tailored to compliment the drinks you order.

Another fantastic Japanese restaurant is Koju, which also has three Michelin stars. Koju uses traditional techniques combined with some contemporary twists and the best seats are those at the counter, where you can chat to the chef and owner between courses.

See the city from the sky


As one of the world’s largest cities, it can be hard to see all of the things you want to if you’re only visiting for a short time. One way to get a phenomenal overview of the city is on a helicopter cruise, which is especially magical at sunset.

From the sky you’ll be able to see the futuristic architecture, ever-changing skyline, the figure of Mount Fuji overlooking the city, and the gargantuan metropolis stretching out below you.

Go shopping


Tokyo has some amazing shopping experiences and many designer and boutique stores that you’ll love. Head to Ginza where you’ll find Misukoshi and Takashimaya – original Japanese department stores that ooze glamour and elegance. There are also numerous modern designer shops, boutiques and restaurants in the area.

Sip drinks overlooking the city


The Park Hyatt is one of Tokyo’s most iconic hotels, and the fantastic Peak Bar is located high on the 41st floor. Enjoy tastefully created drinks whilst taking in panoramic views of the city lights glittering below you. This sophisticated chic bar was also famously featured in the film Lost in Translation.
