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.

The Ritz Carlton is the highest hotel in Tokyo and staying here is all about the incredible views. Waking up in the morning you can open the blinds from the bed and the floor to ceiling windows are just full to the brim of Tokyo's skyline, it's a pretty good place to enjoy your Nespresso from. The location is great for those who want to get out and about in Tokyo, Ripongi is one of the city's main nightlife districts and you're surrounded by bars and restaurants as well as some great shopping. You are also very close to the Mori Museum of art which is open until 10pm over the weekends and would make a great spot to head too for a quick bit of culture before going out for dinner. Speaking of dinner the hotel's Japanese restaurant is split into a Sushi, Teppanyaki and Kaiseki areas. I ate at the Teppanyaki counter and loved watching the chefs precision grill everything from scallops to shitake mushrooms and delicious cuts of beef.

As the highest hotel in Tokyo, you are instantly blown away by the panoramic city views. This opulent hotel, is located in Roppongi, where there are plenty of bars and restaurants, so a great option for those looking for nightlife in close proximity. The rooms are spacious and all have fabulous views.
The service and food is outstanding. The Michelin star restaurant, Hinokizaka is a must if you don't want to venture further afield. The steak at the teppanyaki restaurant is delicious and it's a fun evening, as you watch the chef artfully cook your meal to perfection in front of you. The lobby area can get quite busy, so the upgrade to the Club Lounge is well-worth it.
