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. Fall 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.

I was surprisingly delighted with this hotel. I had expected a slightly corporate feel, however the atmosphere here was very leisurely with the meeting spaces cleverly hidden away. What I liked most was the contemporary, funky design without feeling part of a fashion show! The rooms have a slightly retro touch with cherry blossom carpets and large circular mirrors, all sounding a bit garish but it works well and the views from the bay view rooms are just fantastic! This is a 5 star property which represents excellent value.
