Average time to visit
Tokyo kicks off its year with cold winter days and the odd snowfall. Although temperatures occasionally drop below freezing, winter (December to February) is usually reasonable. Spring (March to May) brings pleasant, warm days, and, of course, cherry blossoms – early April is probably the best time to view the blooms. Summer (June to August) is hot and muggy. Late June can see torrential rains. The temperature and humidity are at their worst in August. Apart from spring, autumn (September to November) is the most pleasant season as temperatures cool down to a cosy level and days are often clear and fine. Autumn also means the return of the dramatic foliage season, when the parks and green areas of the city mellow into varying hues of orange and red.
To start planning your holiday to Peninsula Tokyo
Offering commanding views of the city and Imperial Palace Gardens, The Peninsula is an icon on the Tokyo cityscape. Luxurious comfort, sophisticated facilities and the legendary Peninsula service make this one of the most exclusive properties in Tokyo.
The Peninsula is a landmark in Tokyo with a premium location in the business district of Marunouchi, opposite the Imperial Palace Gardens. From here it is a 2-minute walk to the Imperial Theatre, a 5-minute drive to the renowned Tsukiji Fish Market and a 10-minute train ride to the vibrant nightlife of Rappongi.
The luxurious guest rooms and suites at The Peninsula are among the most spacious in Tokyo, combining Peninsula elegance with contemporary Japanese design. The Grand Deluxe Rooms and Suites have views over the Imperial Palace Gardens whilst the Executive Suites have futuristic views of Ginza’s busy shopping street. The signature marble bathrooms live up to Tokyo’s high tech reputation with TVs and mood lighting.
The Peninsula's many restaurants and bars do not disappoint, with some of Tokyo's finest cuisine being served at the Cantonese Hei Fung Terrace in the traditional cool elegance of a Chinese garden. In contrast, the avant-garde designed Peter is home to hip interactive entertainment technology and meticulous service and technically perfect presentation can be found at Kyoto Tsuruya, the Peninsula's exceptional Japanese restaurant.
The high standards of design and service, a signature of the hotel's bars and restaurants, can be found in the health club, gym and ESPA spa where relaxation and rejuvenation are high on the agenda and are delivered in the most luxury of modern surroundings.
The 267 rooms and 47 suites at The Peninsula are among the most spacious in Tokyo and the most state of the art with the attention to detail even including bedside controlled curtains and nail polish dryers! Even the Superior rooms have a spacious seating area and dining table and all rooms have stunning city vistas. Deluxe Rooms are slightly larger and the Deluxe Corner Rooms have the added benefit of even wider views of the city below. Deluxe Park View Rooms and Grand Deluxe Rooms offer guests even more space and every conceivable comfort. Both Executive and Deluxe Suites have large, bright sitting and dining areas and a guest powder room for complete privacy. The Maranouchi, Hibiya and Peninsula Suites all offer voluminous living space and utter exclusivity.
Children are very welcome at The Peninsula Tokyo and special bathrobes are provided for them as well as activity kits, amenities such as cots etc. and special room service menus. Babysitting can be provided and plenty of the rooms have space for extra beds or can interconnect with other rooms to create your own family suite. The Peninsula Kids' Academy has fun activities such as chocolate making classes for those over 4.
The Peninsula has five exceptional restaurants and bars all with unique dining experiences in fashionable surroundings including the hip 'Peter' on the 24th floor and traditional afternoon tea in the opulent lobby. There is a striking 20 metre indoor swimming pool, a health club and gym crammed with state of the art equipment and rejuvenating, ultra modern ESPA Spa, designed to offer a sanctuary of seclusion with luxurious body treatments and sublime skincare.
Within the hotel, the Peninsula Academy learning and activity programmes offers guests a chance to have a personalised introduction to Japan's culture, history, heritage, lifestyle, cuisine and arts. Personalised classes and activities are offered in a range of topics from sushi and tempura cooking to a contemporary flower arranging class. The Peninsula Tokyo is located at the crossroads of Harumi Dori and Naka Dori, opposite the Imperial Palace and Hibiya Park, making it a great base for exploration of Tokyo whether it is shopping, cuisine, cruising on Tokyo Bay or visiting a shrine or sumo match you are interested in.

Really spacious rooms with huge bathrooms and dressing rooms. Views are a little restricted from some of the rooms as you are surround by other skyscrapers, however, the suites look over to the palace and are really special.
If you like shopping and street food, this is the place to be. Ginza is a short walk away and abouth 5 minutes from the hotel under the train lines, there are great little bars and restaurants offering delicious, cheap eats.
Breakfast is only a la carte and is served in the main lobby which can get quite busy with guests checking in and out.

The Peninsula is perfectly located in Tokyo City Centre, just an easy walk or metro ride from a number of the main attractions and shops. The hotel has a super atmosphere and buzz about it as you arrive into the main lobby. It feels very grand and lively and I liked it instantly. Some of the rooms are quite standard city hotel rooms, but if you ensure you have a room with a view, you will have everything you need for a perfect stay in the city. The pool, spa and gym offer a great place to exercise or relax and there are a variety of dining options. I ate at the restaurant on the 24th floor, which is a super setting with panoramic views of the city skyline.

The Peninsula provides the most amazing post jeg lag pick me up. Coming off my 11+ hour flight I was feeling slightly fragile but one step over the threshold and I was in an oasis. The rooms at the Peninsula are enormous and my rain forest shower was incredible! Located within easy walking distance to the Palace Gardens and the Ginza shopping district it was the perfect spot to start my trip and get my bearings on the city. The staff and concierge could not have been more helpful especially when providing cards that could be used in taxis, stating where you want to go, just in case there are any issues with the language which I thought was a great little tool!

When you are at the Peninsula, make sure you go to the Concierge and ask to borrow one of their iPods for a walking tour. There are two options, one is for a tour of the artwork in the hotel and the other is for the parks and gardens next to the hotel. I chose the second option and the tour is one of the best things I did in Tokyo! It leads you out of the hotel, across the road and into the beautiful Hibiya Park. This is a stunning area complete with picturesque ponds and beautiful trees and flowers (especially during spring and autumn) and it is ideal for a tranquil walk right in the middle of Tokyo. You are then lead into the Imperial Palace Gardens (make sure you turn left at the moat!) where the tour ends and you can continue exploring on your own. They do not really advertise the iPods as there are only a few of them so it is a real insiders tip and something I would definitely recommend.

I was just wowed by the sheer splendour and luxury here. Located in the heart of the city, for me it was the perfect location, near enough to the fabulous shopping in Ginza and also close to the Imperial Palace with many of the hotels rooms offering views over its stunning gardens, The Peninsula is definitely one of my favourite places to stay in this buzzing city. The futuristic rooms (complete with nail dryers and heated loo seats!), are the ultimate in stylish and sophisticated comfort. Make sure you enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in the lobby, a favourite with Tokyo ladies who lunch!
