The best hotel pools in Tokyo

Tired of dealing with crowded swimming lanes? Take an extra-fancy staycation at these hotels instead

By Shiori Kotaki

Tokyo has plenty of great public pools open to all comers, but those of you who'd rather avoid the hoi polloi during your summer swim might want to explore a different option: the many exclusive pools found in hotel gardens all over our fine city. These mini-resorts provide everything from gorgeous views to night-time light-ups and cocktail service, and are open to both hotel guests and visitors. If you have the time and the cash, why not take the opportunity to swim in the heart of Tokyo? Hey, at least it's cheaper than an island vacation.

Prefer a cheaper option?
