Having just arrived in Tokyo and being totally overwhelmed by the mega city of Tokyo, I arrived at my hotel for the first part of my Japan holiday.
I’d planned on how to get to the InterContinental Tokyo Bay from Narita Airport but that all went to pot when I only bought a train ticket to Tokyo Station rather than Shinbashi station where I could have transferred to the train that would have dropped me at Takeshiba Station for a quick walk to the hotel.
Not knowing that I could have topped up my ticket for the extra station and then use my Suica card to get to Takeshiba I opted to use a taxi from Tokyo station.
InterContinental Tokyo Bay is, as it’s name suggests, on Tokyo Bay and if you get a room with a view you’ll get views of the Bay and into east Tokyo.
Here was the view from my room.
The room itself was magnificent as I’d gotten an upgrade due to my IHG Ambassador status.
The hotel was very well appointed, as are all InterContinentals.
It’s a little off the beaten track as you can see from the map above so you really need to travel to see the sights, or grab a meal, but once you work out Tokyo’s public transport that’s not a hassle.
