Perched on a slope above Shibuya's chaos, the Cerulean Tower has a cavernous yet bustling lobby filled with plenty of attentive, English-speaking staffers. The tastefully designed rooms, softly decorated in a wash of neutral tones, are quite spacious for Tokyo and offer views of Tokyo Tower and Mt. Fuji (if the weather cooperates). Some rooms include windows in the bathroom to allow for bath-time city gazing. Fans of the original Japanese Iron Chef TV show might
want to dine at Szechwan Restaurant Chen, whose menu is directed by one of the show's combatants, Kenichi Chen. The branch of the famous Kanetanaka-so ryotei often features Japanese delicacies to match the season.
