A Franco-Sino classic in the landmark Sofitel Tokyo. The hotel is a five-tier pagoda made of white granite and glass; the bar is an elegant first-floor oasis that celebrates not saki but the history of pastis.

Designer Pierre-Yves Rochon has combined classical French and elegant Japanese to truly heighten the senses.
