we woke up super early today to make sure to get the free breakfast from the hotspring hotel because we had a feeling it would be good, and it was! it was a traditional japanese breakfast, buffet style :)


our shuttle bus took us back to gamagori station at 10am, and then we got on the first of 3 trains to get back to shinjuku to get to the PARK HYATT!!! we were so excited :)

we get there, and they INSTANTLY take care of you. our taxi pulled up to the turn around and we tried to help take out our luggage from the trunk, but the two tiny japanese ladies were pretty determined to do it themselves and said to just leave it there for them to grab haha...we felt bad because a few of our suitcases were super heavy! but, i guess if they insisted!

then they led us all the way up to the lobby on the 41st floor and checked us in. we were expecting the typical check-in where you wait in line in front of a big loooong check-in desk, but no. not at the park hyatt. they take you to your own private table in romantic lighting, ask you if they can get you anything to drink, and have you check over your address and e-mail on a piece of paper they put in front of you haha...they also gave us a little bouquet of flowers since it was our honeymoon! so that was pretty cute :)

after check-in, they led us up to our room on the 49th floor (yes, 49th!!!), and showed us around our room. this. place. is. amazing. so amazing, we feel out of place hahaha...super-duper, fancy-schmancy everything, and they have assistants to guide you and say hello to you practically everywhere you walk. it's so awesome yet intimidating at the same time! haha...but here is our rooooom! (those who have seen Lost in Translation will recognize a LOT of this!)

luggage area once you walk into the room

the hallway to the main area

a welcome card (hand-signed haha) and some free chocolate! and water! which is good because the water in the fridge is $13.00!

since i mentioned the fridge, here it is. lots of things we cannot afford haha...like that half-bottle of champagne there? the cheapest one is $75. yep.

a separate area for cute liquor bottles

back to the room though! the entertainment center :)

the comfy bed!

the huuuge window!


love it!!!!!

the bathroom

our honeymoon flowers that they gave us!

outside the room, in our hallway

the lobby!

and of course we had to splurge a bit and go to the same bar bob and charlotte went to in the movie! top floor :) 

where bill murray sat!

however, the bar has the same amazing night view of the city that we have in our room!!!

just so gorgeous :)

we also got these adorable cakes to eat with gold on them! haha...this place is ridiculous. 

it's 1:15am right now, and i think we're going to stay up as long as possible. all we really have to do tomorrow is get to the airport and onto the 12 hour plane ride back to toronto, and we both plan on being passed out for hopefully the entire thing haha...so, this might be the last blog post! we shall see :) i might blog again once we are home!

  3. Congratulations on your beautiful vacation! My husband and I did our honeymoon in Japan, too, in May 2010. It's funny how much stuff was the same (i.e. getting up at 6a.m. daily, walking EVERYWHERE, eating at Grill Miyata, etc.). And congratulations on your marriage. :)
