Opening in April 2018, hotel OMO5 is a welcome addition to Otsuka’s yesteryear charm. The design of this four-star community-style hotel is modern and playful. Rooms are ‘yagura’ style, based on a traditional Japanese wooden tower, with a tatami floor mat, clever built-ins (including a fridge under the stairs) and bright colour schemes. Outside your room, the staff, or ‘OMO rangers’ (each in a bright uniform), will help you make the most of your stay. They can guide you on a local sake tour or take you to their favourite restaurant. You won’t miss out on any Otsuka experiences with the OMO5 team by your side. 2-26-1 Kita-Otsuka, Toshima-ku, Tokyo. https://omo-hotels.com/otsuka/en/.
