A dizzying mixture of old ways and modern style, crowds and calm, and arguably the best food scene on the planet.

Official star rating:
Opened in 2018, this boutique hotel from the BnA art and design collective may only have five rooms, but each is out of this world – it’s a functional art installation, where cutting-edge contemporary art and elements of traditional Japanese design have been merged to create a genuinely unique place to stay.
Beyond the accommodation, basing yourself here also means the chance to tap into Tokyo’s art and design scene at the MIKKE co-working space. You’d be supporting local artists too, as the people who designed each room get a cut of the profit from each booking.
The location, in the otaku (geek) culture mecca that is Akihabara, might seem unusual, but this part of town also has a growing art and design scene, and it offers easy train access to most major districts.
