WILLIAM YEOMAN takes a relaxing break, Pullman-style, in Tokyo
Pullman Tokyo Tamachi, AccorHotels’ 1000 hotel in the Asia Pacific region and first Pullman hotel in Japan, was completed last year as part of Tokyo’s impressive >span class="misspelled" id="misspelledTamachi" name="spellmarker921">Tamachi development project in Minato City’s business district.
Having enjoyed a recent stay there, I can safely attest to this comfortable, modern and conveniently located “upscale” hotel’s attractions beyond its obvious appeal to businesspeople.
The big plus is the covered walkway connecting it with Tamachi Station. The latter, being on the Yamanote and Keihin-Tohoku lines, guarantees not only easy connections with Haneda and Narita airports but a quick train ride to some of Tokyo’s most popular destinations, such as Shinjuku and Shibuya to the north-west and Ginza to the north-east.
In 15 minutes, I was in Harajuku and strolling down Omotesando Avenue.
