All of Japan’s cities have many western-style hotels, with famous-name chains well represented in all larger cities. Especially in peak tourist seasons, it is best to book far in advance.

Japan’s finest hotels have all the facilities and amenities that you would rightfully expect at any world-class hotel. These top-end hotels cater to visiting corporate executives and other overseas guests who can afford deluxe or first-class accommodations. Services provided by English-speaking staff people include ‘executive salon’ secretarial services and access to computers and facsimile transmission equipment.

The restaurants in these hotels are counted among the finest in the major cities, with a variety of cuisines to choose from. From shopping malls and cocktail lounges to room service and interpreter service, these hotels can offer virtually everything the guest could want or need. Most of them provide direct limousine bus connections to the nearest international airports.

A double or twin room at a deluxe hotel will cost an average of 30,000 yen per night, and around 20,000 yen at a first-class hotel. All member hotels of the Japan Hotel Association maintain consistently high standards of service and facilities.
