TOKYO -- The Okura Tokyo, one of Japan's leading hotels, has a 17-story Heritage Wing and a 41-story Prestige Tower. The Prestige Tower boasts expansive windows and one of the best views in the Japanese capital.

But being allocated a fourth-floor slot in the Prestige Tower was so unbearable for high-end sushi restaurant Kyubey that it took the operator of the landmark hotel to court, seeking 10 million yen ($87,000) in damages.
