The Shibuya Granbell Hotel is priced like a business hotel but is certainly a step above in terms of style. Rooms have glass-enclosed bathrooms, beds you’ll sink into and Pop-Art curtains (15-17 Sakuragaoka-cho, Shibuya-ku; from £150).

The Mandarin Oriental Tokyo has exquisitely decorated suites and Michelin-starred restaurants. The highlights here are the atrium lobby and grand views from the rooms (2-1-1 Nihonbashi Muromachi, Chuo-ku; from £320).

Transport
All Nippon Airways, BA, JAL and Virgin Atlantic fly direct to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport (from £750).

Some BA flights go to the more central Haneda Airport. It is often £100–£200 cheaper to fly non-direct via airports in Europe or Asia with airlines including Austrian Airlines and Finnair.

Trains and subways cover all of Tokyo. Although they’re run by different companies, you can use Pasmo or Suica smart cards on almost all lines (minimum input from £8).

Vacant taxis are shown by a red light; a green light means a 20 per cent late-night surcharge.
