Stay in one of IHG’s four Tokyo hotels and you will be ideally placed to soak up the frenetic energy that feeds this fascinating city. From technology and transport to fashion and food, things move quickly here so it’s best to place yourself at the heart of the action if you don’t want to miss a beat. The architecture creates a dynamic street scene that features towering skyscrapers, curved glass and steel structures and colourful apartment blocks.
One of the world’s largest shopping destinations, it’s no surprise to discover that the consumer is king in Tokyo. Browse the mega malls, boutiques and gadget stores or head for any one of the city’s Yokocho alleys where you can explore a myriad of unique independent stores.
While the city streets may be lined with style conscious Tokyoites and the air filled with the sound of pop music, this is a city of great tradition too. Behind the bright lights and shiny malls you can expect to uncover glimpses of ‘Edo’ or old Tokyo. Stumble upon a Shintō shrine, catch a show at the Kabukiza theater, wander the town of Yanesen or take a dip at the Shimizu-Yu Sentō (communal bath house) and you’ll capture the ancient essence of this vibrant city.
Culinary delights abound in Tokyo, but sampling the sushi is just the beginning. Local menus feature pickled vegetable dishes such as Fukujin-zuke and Bettara-zuke, large pot dishes such as Chanko-nabe as well as island seafood specialities such as tataki-jiru (soup with fishcake). When the vibrancy of Tokyo begins to tire you, head for one of the city parks and Japanese gardens to restore your balance with a tea break while admiring some miniature Bonsai garden art. If you are feeling a little more adventurous you could head off on a hike to Mt. Takao which lies to the West of the city.

"The Strings is an excellent hotel in a great location"
My wife and I stayed 5 nights of our 7-day visit to Japan. The Strings, because it is located adjacent to the Shinagawa Train Station, was conveniently located. The modern rooms were very clean and[More]
well furnished. The food in the hotel was excellent and would highly recommend this hotel. This is a five-star hotel and price comparable to other 5-star properties in Tokyo. Can't complain about that. [Less]
