NGT UK October 2022 cover

LONDON (5 September 2022) — The October issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. The cover story this month focuses on Tokyo — from the outre trends of Harajuku and the neon maze of Shinjuku to the technology and subcultures of Akihabara and the world’s best sushi in Ginza, Japan’s capital is a megalopolis made up of distinct neighbourhoods, each with their own character.

This issue also sees the results of the annual Hotel Awards. After a challenging few years, travel’s finally finding its feet again — and the world’s hotel scene has never looked better. We’ve searched the globe for the very best new hotel openings, from an ancient fort restored to its former glory to an inner-city retreat glistening with glamour.
