Hotel Highlights: Kimpton Shinjuku Tokyo is located in the trendy Shinjuku district, just minutes from the Tokyo Metropolitan Building, Shibuya Crossing and Shinjuku Station, the busiest station in the world. The hotel simultaneously draws from the energy of the surrounding area while creating a place of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of Japan’s capital. Bold pops of color, intricate traditional Japanese woodworking and splashes of Art Deco design seamlessly blend NYC chic with local Japanese culture and design. Modern, contemporary guest rooms offer views of Yoyogi Park and Shinjuku Central Park, while deep soak tubs and Japanese artist print robes offer the perfect setting to reclaim that Zen after a day of exploring.
Eat + Drink: In a neighborhood surrounded by some of the best food in Tokyo guests are fortunate to have two great eateries right on site. The Jones Cafe is a New York Deli inspired cafe serving lattes and fresh pastries by day and a curated selection of craft beers come evening. The other option is District, featuring a modern, open kitchen designed restaurant with a sprawling second floor outdoor terrace. The menu features grilled seafood and meats with a heavy focus on local ingredients. The cocktail menu draws inspiration from a few of our favorite New York City Neighborhoods like the Chelsea made with Barr Gin, local honey, lemon and matcha.
Beauty + Wellness: The property has a fully equipped gym with regularly scheduled yoga and fitness classes. You’ll also find yoga mats in each room ideal for an early morning flow before braving the bustling city city. If your idea of self care falls more in line with a long bath, the deep soak tubs have that covered.
Curated Experience: Step outside the hotel lobby and you’ll begin to feel the buzz. One of the most charming aspects of Shinjuku is its tight alleyways filled with yakitori stalls (grilled and skewered meat) and micro bars. With so many to choose from taking a self-guided Golden Gai Food Tour of curated local favorites gives you a place to start in a sea of options. If you’re looking to escape the city for a day consider a private full-day trip to Mt Fuji, Japan’s tallest peak.
