Spring has officially returned, with cherry blossoms in full bloom and time spent appreciating all of nature's rich bounty. Moving forward in a positive direction, plan to be one of the first auspicious travellers setting foot on Japanese shores as soon as the borders reopen.

Protected by Tokyo Bay as the gateway for foreign arrivals, this contemporary yet historical capital will not disappoint for those who have never experienced its dynamic and soulful pace. Even for veteran travellers, the city is in constant evolution that it is always worth a return visit for unique artisan shops, museums and concepts all vying for your attention. The rail system alone is admirable in its scope, and the incredible array of bars and restaurants will leave you hungry for more.
Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi
With stunning views over the Imperial Garden and soaring high above the city's financial district, Four Seasons Otemachi has the best vistas of Tokyo matched with their impeccable and personalised service. We absolutely love the outdoor terrazza at PIGNETO where guests can enjoy seasonally inspired Italian cuisine against the city's sparkling skyline. You can be sure that the staff will always go a step above to deliver luxury at its finest, and a visit to their spa is a must; a cocoon to rejuvenate the weariest of souls.
The Tokyo Toranomon EDITION
You simply cannot beat these Tokyo tower views, which embrace the closest sensation to flying! This renowned collaboration between Kengo Kuma and Ian Schrager of Studio 54 fame, is reflected in cool interiors echoing this luxury lifestyle property. Don't miss their conceptual "Jungle in the Sky" lobby bar, a perfect meeting spot for creatives and guests to enjoy bespoke cocktails in a green courtyard. Their signature 'Gold Bar at EDITION' is soon opening, a social playground to welcome exceptional moments with sophisticated cocktails. The hotel continues to surprise and titillate their clientele, with The Jade Room restaurant also in store for the future.
Park Hyatt Kyoto
Perched on the hillside as an architectural splendour overlooking the ancient capital, Park Hyatt has an enviable location in Higashiyama. Highlighting Kyoto's spiritual ambiance, and partnering with the same family who has run this site for seven generations, it sits pretty alongside Kyoyamato, a well-established ryotei housed in a traditional building amidst Japanese gardens. These tranquil suites adorned with local craftsmanship, are 'illuminated by the mist and the moon;' the perfect retreat from which to enjoy authentic kaiseki cuisine and innovative teppanyaki in an elegant setting. Seamlessly blending their contemporary design into ancient Japanese aesthetic and design, the view of Yasaka Pagoda is also a wow factor that sets this property apart.
HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO
Right next to Nijo Castle and centered around the curated Japanese garden, this property was built on the site of the old Kita-ke, the original home of the Mitsui Family for 250 years. The hotel prides itself on its refined and spacious Suite interiors, thermal spring spa, and embracing Japan's beauty as its mission. The Japanese tea house situated in the garden's heart is stunning as a private dining venue. Experience traditional tea ceremonies at their Japanese tea counter, and unwind at their rare onsen where natural hot springs flow at the source.
