The Park Hyatt's 52nd floor bar and restaurant may have come to international fame thanks to Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation, but expats and locals have long known that it's one of the most elegant places to take in Tokyo's nighttime cityscape over a steak or cocktail. The restaurant menu features excellent steaks and grilled seafood in the evening, and has one of the city's best lunch buffets during the day. If the restaurant is out of your budget, then come
instead to the bar when it opens (before a cover charge is added to your bill) and enjoy a drink as the sun sets over the city.
