The Ritz Carlton Tokyo in Akasaka is my absolute favorite afternoon tea in the world. Why does this place rank number one in my book?? Usually people would except London or Hong Kong to house the best afternoon tea/high tea, however that is not true. The selection of tea really stands out at Tokyo RC. After you make your tea...

Gorgeous hotel with good staff and huge rooms! Well located although mainly we took taxis which were easy to manage as the concierge would brief the driver in Japanese if you don't speak any

Well a last minute decision to go to Tokyo meant we couldn't stay at the mandarin oriental as usual for New Years. We decided to try the Ritz as a friend had recommended it to us. It's ok, not bad, definitively not great, but ok. Bad points: Embarrassingly I had to put tape over a small tattoo on my shoulder... More

We enjoyed a few extra days at the RC after several days skiing in Hakuba. The hotel is a short trip away from central Tokyo via taxi or tube. They provide a very professional delivery of service to all customers on arrival and throughout your stay. The rooms very amongst the most comfortable we've stayed in. The double electronic blinds...

Chocolate fragrance purposefully pumped into the huge lounge, which serves drinks and snacks as well as teas. As the evening wears on, the best place to enjoy a cigar in the huge ceilinged venue, and enjoy the city views from 40 plus floors up.

I am unclear why anyone would think the Ritz Carlton Tokyo "lobby lounge and bar" would be worth visiting, unless that person was incredibly wealthy and enjoyed smoking and didn't mind if no one understood what he/she said in English and didn't mind waiting eons to be served his/her overpriced drink. The Lobby Lounge, on first glance, is impressive, but... More

If you want to impress your date, spouse, or significant other, then this is the place. It is also a great place to have a meeting with the live piano music. We had the lower priced Sakura Afternoon Tea which consisted of Shrimps, Guacamole, Vegetable sticks, Fruit tomato and goat Cheese Crostini, Salmon and Sour Cream Quenelle on Toast Tartiet... More

Located on the 45th floor of the hotel, the views are fantastic. The menu is limited and prices are very high. It is a great place for traditional afternoon tea if that is something that you like.

I LOOOOOOOOOVED staying at the Ritz Tokyo when I went here in February. It was the best hotel I have ever stayed and the staff was extremely accommodating, friendly and even went out of their way to make our stay extra special. The moment we checked in, the concierge asked if we would like to upgrade our suit to a... More
