Four Hotels in Tokyo for a Luxurious Stay

Originally a small fishing village named Edo, Tokyo has exploded into one of the biggest, most densely populated, and busiest capital cities in the world. Home to the imperial throne and the country’s political, economic, financial and cultural center, Tokyo boasts a rich heritage and technology-driven nation. Despite all of its complex modernities, the capital is considered to be one of the safest in the world.

Described as “the city with the highest cost of living in the world” by numerous polls, Tokyo is undoubtedly the perfect place to head to if you are looking for a luxurious, fun-filled vacation.
