Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Okura Tokyo
2–10–4 Tora-no-mon, Tokyo, Tokyo-to, 105-0001, Japan
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
Conservative dark wood in the lobby and the tiered exterior architecture at the entry have helped the Okura achieve a somber sophistication.. Today, there's a certain retro charm to its midcentury Japanese design, but some may find the hotel—including the shops to the bars—somewhat dated, having opened in 1962. Aesthetics aside, the service remains top of the line, and amenities in the spacious rooms are generally up to modern standards, with a folded paper crane on the pillow as a final flourish. Odd-number guest rooms overlook a small Japanese landscaped garden. An on-site museum houses fine antique porcelain, mother-of-pearl, and ceramics.
