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.

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.
