The Times - Tom Chesshyre
In a recent article in The Times, journalist Tom Chesshyre gives his recommendations for the holiday year ahead - including the upmarket Aman Hotel in Tokyo, housed in the Otemachi Tower with windows looking out across the Imperial Palace Gardens.
Some hot destinations for the coming year also include Himeji Castle, whose grand reopening after a five-year facelift is sure to be a big event this spring, and Kanazawa, which is soon to join the Shinkansen bullet train network.
