Size and scale risk making Tokyo feel overwhelming, so the secret of successful city breaks is location, location, location. Step forward K5, a design hotel in Kabutocho: the old financial district that’s taken on a new, more contemporary guise thanks to an influx of co-working spaces, craft beer and cool clothing stores. Located a few blocks from Tokyo Station (easily reached in just over half an hour from Haneda Airport, or twice that from Narita), K5 occupies a former bank within walking distance of cultural Eastern Tokyo and some of the city’s best shopping in Ginza and Nihombashi. The 20 generously sized rooms are a blend of Swedish minimalism and Japanese design, featuring concrete, cedar wood, custom-made furniture and an abundance of greenery that softens the hotel’s industrial, urban edge. It’s an ideal base from which to immerse yourself in Tokyo style.
