The city’s best-kept se­cret

World Travel Magazine - - The Luxury 50 List 2017 -

Leave your shoes at the door and step into a world of rev­er­ence, ap­pre­ci­a­tion and lux­ury. This ho­tel seeks to breathe life into our present through an ar­chi­tec­ture of sim­plic­ity and at­ten­tion to de­tail that de­clut­ters the mind. Styled af­ter a Ja­panese ryokan, the rooms re­flect mountain liv­ing in the city among pol­ished spa­ces that waste lit­tle and fea­ture gen­tle light with ele­gant bam­boo ac­cents, tra­di­tional Ja­panese slid­ing doors and ca­pac­i­ties for two to three peo­ple. Chef Ha­mada Nobuyuki cre­ates Ja­panese culi­nary mas­ter­pieces as flavour­ful as they are beau­ti­fully and thought­fully plated. Enjoy Megumi Yu hot springs, a large pub­lic bath on the top floor, with wa­ter from 1,500 m un­der­ground that highly mois­turises skin. Hoshi­noya, Tokyo, Ja­pan
