The Journal The Authority on Global Business in Japan

Tokyo is a vibrant city, particularly in summer. But like all big cities, the best parts are often known only to locals and discerning visitors. Odaiba, situated on an island just across the bay from the city center, offers panoramic views of the iconic Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo skyline, which sparkles spectacularly at night. Central to the charm of Odaiba is the new Hilton Tokyo Odaiba, offering a cool “summer escape” experience from the hot Tokyo summer.

The newest Hilton-branded hotel in Japan, Hilton Tokyo Odaiba, can be found here and is the perfect jumping-off point for your Tokyo experience. With stunning panoramic views of Tokyo Bay and Rainbow Bridge, as well as easy access to the city by car, bus, or train, all of the excitement of the metropolis is within reach. When you want to head back across the bay, Tokyo Station is only 24 minutes away from the Yurikamome Line’s Daiba Station, just a one-minute walk from the hotel.

As summer fully grips the city, Hilton Tokyo Odaiba is orchestrating an amazing lineup for food lovers called “City Escape—Summer Dining Experience.” It includes six key ports of call on your summer adventure: the sake garden, veranda, terrace BBQ, craft beer garden, seafood buffet, and summer snow.

SAKURA (Sake Garden)
At this contemporary Japanese-style restaurant, you can take a journey through 20 varieties of artisan sake from around Japan. Match these with Japanese-style tapas, choose a drinking cup from an eclectic selection, and chill out to music in the lounge chairs.

VERANDA (Lounge and Champagne Bar)
Need a break? Relax on the deck with free-flow champagne and cool breezes while watching the colors of Tokyo transform as the sun sets. Feel the city stress drain away as you nibble on fresh seafood.

ABLAZE (Barbecue Terrace)
Enjoy one of summer’s great pastimes: the barbecue. Here you can cook your own BBQ over a smokeless German-made grill while enjoying cold beer, live music, and the cool sea breeze.

For those who love carefully crafted brews, take in the summer-night breeze in this lush garden while enjoying 30 varieties centered on craft beers from Japan and Belgium, the country world-renowned for its mastery of the art.

OCEAN DINING (Seafood Buffet)
Is there any better setting for enjoying seafood than a perfect vista of the water? Ocean Dining sets the mood with large windows that overlook Tokyo Bay. Lunch features a colorful seafood bar, while dinner offers many types of seafood prepared using low-temperature cooking methods and specially made equipment. The chef will even deliver a paella to be prepared at each table.

SUMMER SNOW (Dessert Buffet)
Snow falling in the middle of summer? Sounds curious, but it’s all part of the special dessert offering at Lounge and Champagne Bar Veranda. Experience the contrast of clear blue skies and a midsummer ocean while tasting cool and refreshing summertime desserts in a restaurant decorated like a world of white snow.
