New History in the Palace Hotel Tokyo

Japan was so fun last year, we had to do it again this year!  This time we based our one week stay completely in Tokyo.

Last time, we stayed at the Peninsula Hotel in Ginza.  It's an impeccable hotel with a great location if you want to be in the Ginza vicinity.  For this trip, we wanted to focus on the newly constructed and renovated Tokyo station.

Opened just last May 2012, the Palace Hotel Tokyo has a half century history in its location next to the Imperial Palace gardens.  With its moat-side setting, the hotel sits in the "heart of Japan" located conveniently in Marunouchi.

The hotel is contemporary and luxuriously cozy.  If the city wasn't so amazing with endless eats, it would be hard to leave the spacious rooms with picturesque views every day.  From dawn to dusk to dark, the views of the greenery and the surrounding city skyline gives you peace in the midst of Tokyo's constant crowds and bustle.

There is so much to do in Tokyo that even one week didn't seem like enough.  Oh well, that's great incentive for another Tokyo trip in the near future!
