Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo

A stylish Tokyo hot spot
Zip up to the wood-filled 38th-floor lobby of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo to discover a stylish hot spot.

Walk past the long black stone table topped with an elegant pine tree-inspired work of art and the floor lanterns with shaggy white shades to descend the stairs to the 37th floor, where a trio of stacked fireplaces at Sense Tea Corner lights up a dramatic wall of fire. It counters a dim, sexy plum and gray lounge area across the way that rests above a black shallow pool with a spiraling water feature.

It will be hard to pry your eyes from the chic décor, but you won’t want to miss the views of the city skyline — on clear days you can even see Mount Fuji — out of the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the hotel. You’ll even get to take in the view at the many fantastic restaurants and the must-visit spa.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Gaze at sweeping views throughout the property. Linger in the two-story lobby with its wall of windows.
  • The Tokyo hotel knows how to do fantastic food — after all, it did devise having legendary Copenhagen restaurant Noma do a pop-up there. The popular dining destination entices with traditional Cantonese cuisine at Sense, avant-garde cuisine at Tapas Molecular Bar and super-fresh nigiri at Sushi Shin by Miyakawa.
  • Guest rooms have a modern Japanese aesthetic that’s soothing and inviting. Couches in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows let you take in the impressive views.
  • The spa wows with treatment rooms that overlook the city. For the most luxurious experience, upgrade to the Tranquility Suite, which lets you soak in an infinity bath while peering out of two walls of windows. It’s a heavenly view.
  • Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo offers exclusive activities. Learn from a samurai master, make sushi at the renowned Tsukiji Fish Market or enjoy a fine kaiseki meal and see a geisha performance.
Things to Know
  • The luxury hotel offers direct subway access via Mitsukoshi-mae Station on the Ginza and Hanzomon line to all major points of the city.
The Rooms
  • Perched on the 30th to 36th floors of the Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower, the guest rooms look out over the Sumida River and Tokyo Skytree to the east, and Ginza and Tokyo Station (and when the weather is nice, Mount Fuji) to the west. Grab the provided binoculars to gaze at the scene outside.
  • Every guest room bears a unique framed isegata, a rare forming sheet used for dyeing kimonos, and has oblong fabric lanterns made with handcrafted washi paper.
  • The suites are infused with touches of nature — the stone-and-timber rooms come with bamboo flooring, wisteria blooms are embroidered onto each headboard and autumn-toned accents (purple and gold) add vibrant pops of color throughout. 
  • The gray granite bathroom is another standout with a roomy shower equipped with both a regular and rain-shower fixtures, a standalone sunken tub and an electronic toilet.
  • Peek inside the bathroom’s big black lacquer box, a treasure chest filled razors, hair bands, toothbrushes, emery boards, a brush, body balm and bath salts.
The Restaurants
  • Signature puts a contemporary spin on classic French gastronomy. The artfully presented plates are as elegant as the chic decor — the silver screens are particularly stunning. 
  • Fresh fish fans line Sushi Shin by Miyakawa's 350-year-old Japanese cypress counter to watch skills chefs craft traditional Edomae-style sushi, a style dating back to the Edo period that stresses simple, measured but elegant preparation.
  • Glimpse exceptional views of eastern Tokyo from Sense’s 37th-floor vivid-pink dining room while savoring authentic Cantonese cuisine, including dim sum.
  • Those with adventurous palates should snag one of the eight counter seats at innovative Tapas Molecular Bar for a memorable culinary journey.
  • For an aperitif or after-dinner drink with skyline views, head for the sleek Mandarin Bar.
