In Roppongi, a part of Tokyo that looks like New York City, we found the aptly named Midtown building, an upscale complex of luxury shopping, fine-dining and corporate offices towering into the sky. The building’s very top floors are home to the sublime Ritz Carlton Tokyo – the ultimate playground of both the Japanese capital’s elite and the international jetset. Checking in at Club Level affords stunning, uninterrupted views of this sprawling metropolis – and at breakfast on our last day, Mount Fuji even made an appearance in the distance. The Club will make you never want to leave the hotel, as at five sittings each day, elaborate snacks and refreshments are laid out for VIP guests. Our ryokanthemed suite was a fine touch and unique experience – a sprawling Japanese house in the sky, decked out with bamboo flooring. Some special amenities were placed in room to make our stay extra special – a Japanese peach bowl, an enormous chocolate presentation and matching his and his yukatas (cotton bath robes). The ultimate embellishment? A super-duper King-sized bed, the largest and quite possibly the comfiest we’ve ever had the pleasure to sleep-in.
