Elite Traveler Summer 2019


The Peninsula Suite feels more like an incredible residence than a hotel room, and its grand foyer sets the tone for the public spaces. The 12-person dining room has a balcony (a rare occurrence in the city) where you can soak up beautiful views of Hibiya Park and the Imperial Palace Gardens. A modern crystal chandelier dazzles overhead while you take in the glittering city lights. In the enormous living room, there are several seating areas, floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the space with light, a media center and a baby grand piano. While the suite is perfect for entertaining, its private quarters are equally as impressive. You can admire the views of the gardens from bed, there’s a large master bathroom with marble whirlpool tub (and more windows), a gym with weights and a bicycle, and a separate study. As you might expect in Japan, the suite’s technology is top-notch and includes everything from mood lighting to a nail dryer and a detailed weather panel. The decor throughout is a study in Japanese minimalism; we love the cherry blossom-patterned washi -paper ceiling panels, and there’s even a room for holding a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Japanese journeys Step behind the scenes in Tokyo’s art world with curator Natane Takeda, who works as a VIP relations coordinator for Art Basel in the city. Her connections will take you into the city’s best galleries and studios, help navigate the purchase process and introduce you to tea houses that artists frequent, all from the comfort of a chauffeured Rolls-Royce.
