The area of Oshiage in Tokyo already has a lot going for it, with an appealing combination of the modern, in the form of the magnificent Tokyo Skytree (one of the world’s tallest towers at 634 meters), and traditional downtown Shitamachi streets.

Now, One@Tokyo, a striking art hotel designed by Kengo Kuma, is another good reason to visit the district. The architect has used his signature style of natural wood inside and out to create a contemporary downtown atmosphere within the hotel. Conceived as an ‘art exhibit’ it’s certainly an aesthetically pleasing place to stay and has breath-taking views of the Skytree from its roof terrace.
