‘The heart of the city’ doesn’t begin to sum up Tokyo Station. It’s the epicentre of the Japanese capital – right by the Marunouchi business district, Ginza’s superlative high-end shopping and the Imperial Palace. And then there’s the fact that the station’s Ramen Street is a one-stop shrine to the noodle.
That puts the Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo in the perfect location for both business and leisure travellers. The property occupies the uppermost floors of a 37-storey skyscraper next to the station, granting superb panoramas over the metropolis. Its 200 rooms and suites are a blend of quintessential Japanese style and urban modernity.
The hotel’s principal restaurant, Nadaman, specialises in three different Japanese cuisines – kaiseki, sushi and teppanyaki – while Piacere is renowned for its Italian fare.
Guests staying on the Horizon Club floors can relax in their own exclusive lounge, with a dedicated concierge and complimentary evening cocktails. And to get the full benefit of this inner-city oasis, guests at the Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo can repair to Chi, The Spa, or to the whirlpool, sauna and 20-metre heated indoor pool.
