Tokyo's Hotel Seiyo Ginza (in the same family as New York's Carlyle and Antigua's Jumby Bay) trumps bedside iPods and tanning butlers with its latest amenity du jour: Hotel chef Makoto Iijima leads guests on crack-of-dawn tours to the Tsukiji fish market, a bustling 56-acre spectacle of some 450 kinds of fish. He'll bid on whatever catch of the day you fancy, then bring it back to the hotel and slice it up at a private dinner or, for the full cultural immersion, a sushi breakfast. From $385 to $1,700; tour, $130. At 1-11-2 Ginza; 888-767-3966; www.rosewoodhotels.com.
