Seeing a city through the eyes of a local
Yoshiharu Hoshino, CEO of Hoshino Resorts says: “We’ve noticed an upsurge in visitors to Japan wanting to get off the pages of the guidebook. Being in a new city as a tourist is one thing, but to really get under the skin of a place, you need to go native. Our OMO Rangers are local tour guides – colour-coded according to their specialty – who show guests the best-kept secrets only known to those who live there. Purple Rangers, for example, will show you the shops that only open at night time, and Red Rangers are sake masters who’ll take you bar-hopping in Otsuka. Instead of ticking off the usual crowded hotspots, discover tiny side street ramen restaurants, get into the coolest cocktail bars, and visit the city’s hottest exhibitions”.
You can stay at the stylish OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka (125 bedrooms) from £92 per room per night (two sharing; room only). OMO Ranger guided tours start from £6 pp.
