More intimate than the city's other luxury hotels, the Ritz-Carlton combines a homey atmosphere and European elegance. King-size beds with goose-down pillows and dark-wood furnishings grace the guest rooms, and the bathrooms have plush robes and fluffy towels. All rooms have flat-screen TVs with plug-in panels where you can attach your electronic gadgets. A rarity in Japan, the rates include use of the pool, hot tub, and fitness room. All this comes at a price—the Ritz-Carlton
is the city's most expensive hotel.
