Luxury and Boutique Hotels in Japan

Japan has an unparalleled elegance and sophistication when it comes to their accommodations; from some of the world’s finest flagship hotels to a long heritage of luxury ryokan hotels not found anywhere else in the world. This means you can be drinking in Tokyo’s skyscraper views from the Mandarin Oriental or gazing out over the Shinjuku nightscape from the Park Hyatt one evening, then relaxing in your own hot spring bath after a multi-course kaiseki meal at the Gora Kadan ryokan the next. Using the very best luxury boutique hotels and traditional Japanese ryokans, opulent or humble, your night's rest will be something to look forward to and you will experience some of the highest levels of hospitality to be found anywhere in the world. When staying in ryokans in the more rural areas, bear mind that the country still receives relatively few foreign visitors, so English is not widely spoken.
