At Palace Hotel Tokyo, a storied history, inspired design and a tireless commitment to showcase the best of Japan come together to present travelers with the finest hospitality experience to be had in the city. From its array of 10 distinctive restaurants and bars, its chic evian SPA and its menu of exclusive cultural offerings – from bespoke art tours and foodie excursions to behind-the-scenes of sumo wrestling and kabuki – the award-winning hotel gracefully marries contemporary luxuries and Japanese aesthetics with sophistication and authenticity. Situated amidst the country’s much-loved Imperial Palace gardens and moats, its enviable address in the prestigious Marunouchi district puts it right in the heart of Tokyo – yet without the accompanying soundtrack of the bustling metropolis. Delightfully so.
