If you are looking to tick the buzzing city of Tokyo off your bucket list, then do it in style with the help of the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
The luxury property has recently gone through an extensive renovation of the guest rooms, combing Japanese craftsmanship with the latest technology.
To compliment the hotel’s location in Nihonbashi, an area that is closely connected to the culture of the Kimono, textile designer Reiko Sudo has used locally produced fabrics in all suite and guestroom interiors.
Bespoke fabrics and furnishings representing the woodlands and the changing seasons, have been incorporated throughout, with autumn leaf colours of gold, orange and purple and blooming springtime wisteria and sakura patterns embroidered onto headboards.
The rooms feel contemporary and luxurious, all incorporating a nature theme to make you feel relaxed and at one during your stay – the Presidential Suite even offer a view of Mount Fuji on a clear day. But at some point you are going to have to leave your haven so you can check out one of the 10 restaurants and bars as well as an award-winning spa.
For a truly immersive cultural experience, guests can book Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s Nihonbashi Package which includes accommodation, breakfast for two and the choice of a cultural experience in the historic Nihonbashi district.
