After driving up a long winding road, offering expansive views over the rolling mountains and towns of Shizuoka, you arrive at Katsuragi Kitanomaru, a dream-like castle resort constructed from seven 200-year-old repurposed country homes. Pass over the impressive moat and main gate, and you will enter the spacious grounds of the hotel resort, boasting not only beautifully designed tatami rooms with original beams and sunken hearths, but also a vast Japanese garden, three public baths, and two golf courses, all perfectly blending history with modernity. Make sure to stay in one of the Japanese-style suites and let yourself get transported back to the Edo-era. To complete your modern castle experience, indulge in one of the hotel's splendid kaiseki dinners, which combine the region's best produce and meat in a beautiful succession of courses you will never forget.

Mitsukoshi department store is a giant in its field. While the Ginza and Shinjuku branches have become a must-visit if you’re going on a luxury shopping spree in Tokyo, the original store located in historically rich Nihombashi slips through the cracks. This results in many missing out on the beautiful architecture and services the flagship store has to offer. Nihombashi Mitsukoshi’s exterior echoes the buildings of 18th-century Europe and features decorative moldings above every entrance as well as a generous dose of marble from floor to ceiling. Considering its long history, which dates back to the 17th century, and its many innovative offerings that helped to define the department store as one of the best in the country, it’s no surprise the Nihombashi location was designated an Important Cultural Property in 2016 and won the title of the Hallmark of Japan.

Tuck into delicious, hearty meat dishes at Komatsuya, a quaint steakhouse in Ginza made to satisfy every meat lover’s cuisine dreams. The restaurant's name is taken from the owner’s father’s eponymous butchery, and the menu is inspired by the flavors and ingredients the owner grew to love as a child. The owner also owns a farm from which prime cuts of Wagyu and Agu pork are imported to concoct the mouthwatering menu items served at Komatsuya. The owner describes himself as both a "meat fanatic" and farmer, producing superb quality ham and sausages from meat that is aged using a traditional technique called karashi, which has been passed down through the ages amongst Japanese butchers. Wagyu is synonymous with Japanese traditional cuisine and holds its own among staples such as sushi, ramen and tempura; so why not give it a try at a restaurant that has mastered meat-centered dishes? As for Agu pork, which comes from a breed of pig specific to Japan, Komatsuya is one of the only restaurants in Japan where you are guaranteed to be able to eat 100% authentic Agu pork at any time. For menu suggestions, we highly recommend the Tomahawk six-course menu, featuring thick cuts of roasted rib chop – the only dish of its kind that you can eat in Ginza. It's prepared using only salt, pepper and olive oil, letting the Agu pork’s distinctive flavor stand out. Enjoy a delicious course of wagyu with refreshing beer or quality wine for the very reasonable price of ¥10,000. How Much: ¥600-¥10,000 Address: 6-12-2 Ginza, Chuo-ku Open: Lunch 11:30-14:00 (L.O. 13:30), Dinner 17:00-23:00 (L.O. for food: 21:30, drinks: 22:30). Closed for lunch on every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month. Website: tabelog.com    Tel: 03-6280-6167
