Lined with 900 ginkgo trees, Midosuji Avenue in Osaka, Japan, is known as the city’s Champs-Élysées for its classic early-20th-century buildings, large department stores, and bustling sidewalks. The St. Regis Osaka, which opened in October, occupies the bottom two stories and floors 11 through 27 of a brand-new high-rise on this popular shopping stretch in Japan’s second city.

The hotel—the St. Regis group’s first in Japan—features a 12th-floor lobby that opens to an outdoor garden. The 160 guest rooms include a $10,000-per-night Royal Suite decorated with artworks depicting chrysanthemums, the symbol of the Japanese imperial family.

Restaurants at the St. Regis Osaka range from La Veduta—an Italian eatery helmed by Japanese chef Toshifumi Nakahigashi—to the Rue d’Or bistro. The indoor-outdoor bistro, located on the building’s ground floor, is an ideal spot for lunch and for sampling the hotel’s signature Shogun Mary cocktail.
