When visiting Tokyo, it’s key to book a luxurious hotel that feels like a serene retreat removed from the crowds. After all, Japan’s sprawling capital is populated by 37 million people, making it the single largest city in the world.
From the moment guests enter the lobby of the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo, on the 38th floor of the Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower, the serenity of the space and the breathtaking bird’s eye views of the Tokyo skyline and Mt. Fuji make them feel instantly transported above the bustling streets and sidewalks.
That sense of tranquility is a thread that runs through every aspect of the luxury hotel’s lofty spaces, from the ultra-luxe and spacious guest rooms to the sleek restaurants and bars. Combined with a contemporary spa that is nominated as Japan’s Best Hotel Spa in this year’s World Spa Awards, and it’s easy to see why Mandarin Oriental Tokyo is the perfect perch to call home during a stay in the dynamic city of Tokyo.
The hotel is perched high up on the upper floors of the Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower, in the city’s prestigious Nihonbashi financial district.

The contemporary spa has nine treatment rooms (including four suites and a Spa Studio), and offers Asian and Western-inspired treatments.

And the opulent 24-Karat Age-Defying Facial uses actual gold leaf to restore and refine skin.
Even if you don’t book a service, be sure to make an appointment to visit the spa for a water therapy session so you can cycle through the pools and sauna while taking in panoramic views of the city skyline.
