It may be a bit clichéd to include this in the list but there really is nothing like it in the world. Everyone familiar with the film Lost In Translation will know that this was where Bill Murrays’ Bob Harris spent most of his time, but surprisingly it’s less of a tourist trap than you’d think. On the 52nd floor of the Park Hyatt in Shinjuku, it’s always my first-night-in-Tokyo must – once that elevator hits the top floor and the Shinjuku skyline hits you, it’s every futurist’s Blade Runner dream come true. Unfortunately, that terrible Jazz singer with the red hair that Bob had the misfortune of waking up next to is still there from time to time, but ignore her, pull up a chair, get yourself a Suntory and enjoy the view.
