Billed as the only true onsen ryokan in central Tokyo, this property occupies a 17-floor high-rise in the financial district. To maintain a feeling of serenity in a larger hotel, the 84 rooms are divided into groups of six, with each floor functioning as a self-contained ryokan with private lounges. Rooms are decorated in a Japanese minimalist style with tatami-lined floors, low Western-style beds, hidden televisions and baths with glass walls that can be frosted over at the flick of a switch. Views are modest but accented by shoji paper screens and the decorative steel lattice that covers the outside of the building. The well-regarded restaurant serves seafood-oriented kaiseki cuisine. After a long day out exploring Tokyo, soaking in the hot-spring waters of the rooftop onsen is bliss. River cruises can be arranged.
