Congratulations! You’ve just gotten married. Now, pop open a bottle of reasonably priced champagne and celebrate your honeymoon with garden strolls at dusk, rose petals, and incredible city skylines in Tokyo.
There are plenty of hotels in Japan’s capital where you’ll find a hidden lovers’ retreat that’s perfect for newlyweds, but if you’re looking for something specific — say a hotel with an onsen, spacious rooftop, or a view of Mount Fuji — we also have you covered.
Tokyo Disney Resort HotelHighlights: Views of the ocean or Disney Park
From ¥25,000 per room
Book here for Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel
Book here for Tokyo Disneyland Hotel (from ¥54,500)
Book here for MiraCosta (from ¥59,500)
The most magical place on earth is bound to deliver tingles and excitement to a newlywed couple, and if you happen to be Disney fans, then that’s a bonus. While not for everyone, thrill-seekers will rejoice at the proximity to both Tokyo DisneySea and Tokyo Disneyland. There are several hotels in the resort area, as well as hotels on the monorail with spectacular sea views and welcoming service — like the Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel.
While the Disney Resort Hotel MiraCosta is significantly more expensive, it is one of the only places in the world where you can sleep overnight in a Disney Resort Park. It has its own private entrance and Venetian design, plus you can see the daily DisneySea night show from the comfort of your room.
Cheapo tip: Urayasu Brighton Hotel Tokyo Bay nearby is significantly cheaper (from ¥15,500) and also has a free shuttle bus service and a romantic rose-petal plan.
Hilton Tokyo OdaibaHighlights: Incredible spa, restaurants, and views
From ¥36,200 per room
The Hilton Tokyo Odaiba is another hotel that offers free shuttle service to Tokyo Disney Resort (despite it being a 15-minute drive away). Situated in Tokyo Bay, and with incredible views of the city and Odaiba Rainbow Bridge, Hilton Tokyo Odaiba has plenty to see and do.
Stroll hand-in-hand with your beloved along the hotel’s garden path, visit the spa (that includes an outdoor hot tub), or set the mood at sunset and head to the terrace of one of the many exquisite restaurants on site.
Tokyo Station HotelHighlights: Stay in one of the most iconic buildings in Tokyo
From ¥46,000 per room
Celebrate two once-in-a-lifetime experiences at Tokyo Station Hotel: your honeymoon and staying overnight in a national heritage building in Japan. The incandescent Tokyo Station Building — where the hotel is located — stands out both in the day and night, but the interior is just as bright. There’s a European flair in the decor, with chandeliers, marble, and high ceilings, and the atmosphere is accentuated by classical music performances in the lobby. This is a place built for history (and train) lovers.
Cheapo tip: Japan Rail Pass holders get a 10% discount off the hotel bill if buying the pass before check-in.
Hotel Chinzanso TokyoHighlights: Sea of Clouds, Japanese garden, and luxury spa
From ¥58,300 per room
Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is known for its garden that transports you into a fantasy world. It’s not just the cherry trees, waterfalls, or even pagoda that does it, but the experience known as “Sea of Clouds”, where manmade mist rolls in and shrouds the garden with a whimsical fog. This coincides with seasonal night shows and other events. If that isn’t enough to convince you that it’s a romantic place to stay, they also have a chapel that holds weddings, as well as massage services, a spa, and a hot spring on site.
Hotel New Otani TokyoHighlights: Restaurants, roses, and traditional Japanese garden
From ¥36,100 per room
Book here for Hotel New Otani Tokyo Garden Tower
Book here for Hotel New Otani Tokyo The Main (From ¥45,300)
Hotel New Otani Tokyo is another luxurious hotel with a sprawling Japanese and rose garden — they are the flower of love after all. It has a long history, having opened its doors in 1964, and has hosted both famous and infamous guests. Other accolades include having the largest outdoor hotel pool in Tokyo. It has been remodeled many times and now includes the New Otani Garden Tower with slightly cheaper rooms than the main building. But you would be missing out on the New Edo Standard rooms, which come with a wooden cypress bath.
No matter which building or floor you choose, you’ll have access to private spa treatments, a tearoom, gardens, and a whopping 37 restaurants. You can also opt for a special occasion plan that includes a bouquet and a restaurant reservation.
Asakusa View HotelHighlights: Views of Tokyo Skytree and proximity to Sensoji Temple
From ¥24,600 per room
If you’d like to enjoy the old, quiet side of Tokyo, then Asakusa View Hotel might suit you both. Grab a traditional rikshaw from the hotel’s entrance and explore the heart of Asakusa. You’ll be just a stone’s throw away from Senso-ji Temple and directly connected to Asakusa Station. The rooms are spacious and include large double beds — though cuddlers should be aware that some are two singles pushed together. There’s a fitness center with an indoor pool with incredible views not unlike the one at Park Hyatt Tokyo. And don’t forget the restaurants with panoramic views.
