There's no destination to experience the epitome of contemporary luxury in all of Japan than the Mandarin Oriental. As it is the Tokyo branch of the famous Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, there's a large piece of the Japanese culture.
There is an affinity for nature in every corner of this luxury hotel. One of the most intriguing attributes remains the oddly exciting spatially distorted feel and the interior's futuristic decor style.
Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo occupies the top nine floors of the Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower. This tower sits in the Nihonbashi district and is home to Tokyo's most original department stores. The district has the bustling Ginza as its neighbor and the Tokyo Station and Tokyo Stock Exchange a quick ride away.
On entering the hotel, there's an unmistakable nod to Japan's fascination for nature. Interior designer Reiko Sudo's design of the tower is akin to that of a tree. Moreover, the ground floor entrance is decorated with richly textured motifs, wall coverings, and fabrics that conjure thoughts of tree roots.
Guests can take the high-speed lift to the Cesar Pelli-designed 38th floor lobby. The view wows all the more, as it showcases the megalopolis's best angles. Just standing in the center of the lobby gives a surreal view of the endless cityscape that stretches out in all directions.
To the east, the check-in desk has a glass backdrop framing the Tokyo Skytree. To the west, another floor-to-ceiling window shows the Imperial Palace Gardens. Besides, behind a vast urban skyline, there is Mount Fuji in the distance.
Just as a tower is like a tree, the lobby resembles a tree's canopy. Besides, the exceptional attention-to-detail public spaces like bars and eateries signify the tree's branches, spreading out in the most ethereal way.
Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo, boasts one of Japan's largest accommodation, with 157 guest rooms and 21 suites, designed and equipped to perfection. Seven floors encompass these rooms and are only accessible via an exclusive elevator from the Sky Lobby.
Each room and suite has a spectacular view of Tokyo and its respective districts. Guests can enjoy home-grown grapes from Osaka, a perfect fruity introduction. The rooms are elegantly decorated with wooden bedside tables and a large and supple king-size bed. Moreover, nature-themed fabrics cover the walls.
The sakura or cherry blossom motifs on the headboards further stress the general theme of the hotel. To experience more Japanese traditions, guests can find cotton yukatas with belts in polished boxes beside the bed.
Entertainment and communication are not lost, as each room has a wide LCD TV, wireless internet access, and sophisticated audiovisual equipment.
Additionally, the bathrooms do not disappoint. You can close its glass wall backdrop with the push of a button for utmost privacy. The marble bathrooms also feature a walk-in shower with amber-like nozzles, a separate tub, and Bottega Veneta toiletries. An array of calming essential oils are also present in the bathrooms.
The resort has one of the most extensive dining scenes in all of Japan. The hotel houses 12 restaurants, three of which are Michelin-starred.
Sushi Shin by Miyawaka serves nine guests and has the most stunning views of the city below. The menu offers sushi made by traditional Edo-mae sushi chefs for an authentic sushi experience at "Sushi Shin by Miyakawa."

With just eight diners per seating, the Tapas Molecular Bar serves tapas and small dishes prepared using innovative cooking techniques, accompanied by a tasting menu to feed your quirkiest cuisine imaginations.
Sense Tea Corner on the 37th floor also has its separate tea corner known for its pure and fine Chinese tea and pastries. To indulge in authentic Italian dining with a relaxed setting of wooden chairs, dark brown wooden walls, and cream ceilings, K'Shiki is the place to visit.
Another Italian restaurant aptly named The Pizza Bar serves up sizzling pizzas straight from the brick oven by their master pizza makers.
