Luxury hotels

When you come to Japan, you want to stay in the best hotels, and a luxury hotel will meet your needs.
In the case of Japan, there are some luxury inns that mainly offer Japanese-style rooms, so here I will introduce some luxury hotels that mainly offer Western-style rooms.

In the city center, there are many foreign-affiliated luxury hotels. The Ritz-Carlton of the Marriott family and the Conrad of the Hilton family are representative.
In Tokyo, the Imperial Hotel and the Hotel New Otani are the most famous hotels in Japan.

There are many different types of luxury hotels, but here we will focus on hotels that have been awarded "high class" or "4 or 5 stars" on booking sites.

How to make a hotel reservation

Hotels in Japan can be easily booked through major reservation sites such as Jalan.
Cancellation policies vary from hotel to hotel, but basically, you can cancel up to the day before your check-in date.
If the cancellation policy is strict, it will be stated in the terms and conditions, so make sure to check it.
Please note that for plans that include meals, cancellation fees may be charged from about a week before the reservation date.


The first step is to check in at the front desk.
If you have made a reservation in advance, tell them your name and check in.

Some foreign hotels charge a deposit to your card.
