Dine on mouth-watering ramen, gaze at masterpieces at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum and shop at Yebisu Garden Place while staying in the upscale Ebisu district.

Built around the site of an old brewery, just south of the organised chaos that is Shibuya, laid-back Ebisu is brimming with cosy izakaya pubs, kushiage specialists and legendary tachinomiya standing bars. Stay in one of these top hotels to experience the very best of Tokyo’s Ebisu district.

Part-art museum, part-hotel, Hotel Gajoen offers some of the finest omotenashi hospitality in Tokyo. Here, the walls are plastered with traditional Japanese art that greets you at the entrance. After following the maze of artworks across a small indoor river and tranquil gardens, the rooms offer an antidote to this extravagant decor – the neutral palettes are a nod to Japanese ryokans.
