Re-live "Lost in Translation" in Tokyo


If you're a fan of the film Lost in Translation, then you can follow in Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson's footsteps during your stay in Tokyo. Get in touch with one of our local Evaneos agencies to add activities inspired by the film to your itinerary, like a drive around the greater Tokyo area for an overview of the different filming locations.

Even though you'll surely spend less time in your hotel room than Bill Murray did, why not stay at the Park Hyatt? In this luxury hotel, located in the Shinjuku business district, you'll feel like one of Sofia Coppola's characters. Take the elevator up to the 52nd floor, to the New York Bar, and enjoy the panoramic view of the entire city while savoring cocktails and delicious food. For the complete experience, make sure to go for a swim in the Park Hyatt pool.

The Golden Gai neighborhood, a small part of Shinjuku with historically preserved narrow alleyways, offers a more authentic ambiance. It's teeming with tiny, welcoming bars where you can meet the locals and even sing some karaoke. La Jetée is a French-inspired bar in the Golden Gai that's a favorite of movie fans, and a hot spot for many filmmakers.
