|Room With A View, Room 4303
Many scenes in Lost In Translation are set at the Park Hyatt Tokyo so, with some help from my dad’s Hyatt points, I booked a room. This turned out to be an excellent idea. The Park Hyatt is one of the best hotels, if not the best, I’ve ever visited. The rooms are large (huge by Japanese standards) and the service is impeccable. There is standard twice daily housekeeping and they even fill up the ice bucket (with Scotch bar quality ice cubes too). The staff was very courteous and the facilities top notch. I asked for a room with a view facing the city and got a room on the 43rd floor so I could do my Lost In Translation picture.

It's best not to play 'guess what sound this made?' or 'what sea creature was this?' while eating in Japan. I was a little adventurous on my flight to Tokyo and enjoyed the eel and other odd things served. Once on the ground, I was much less daring. I went to McDonald’s twice. I did try some street food and it was good and looked like chicken. I also went to the New York Bar at the Park Hyatt Tokyo. I had one of my top three burgers (and by far most expensive) ever. I got there before the band started and enjoyed the sun set.
