Hotels in Tokyo

Bright, vibrant Tokyo, the neon-lit capital of Japan is an idiosyncratic city that you cannot help but be totally charmed by. It is an incongruent city, with soaring skyscrapers and hidden wooden temples, it is slick and kitsch, busy and calm, endlessly fun and very sober. To stay in Tokyo is to gain an insight into contemporary Japan, and all of its wonderful quirks.

Where should you stay in Tokyo?

Shibuya

Famed Shibuya is a Tokyo icon, its biggest attraction being the incredible crossroad walkway that thousands of people tread every day. Likened to New York’s Times Square, this is a frenetic and fun part of the city. You won’t get much sleep if you stay here, as the nightlife is hopping, and there are people in this part of town at all hours, but if you love the buzz of the inner city there’s no where better.

Lots of students that frequent the area, along with the office workers, so you can find a decent range of hotels at reasonable prices. If you do stay here, don’t forget to stop by the Hachiko statue and learn the story about the Akita dog whose unending loyalty to his master was memorialised in this popular part of the city.

Roppongi

Roppongi is one of the most popular places for visitors to stay as it has pretty much everything guests need; excellent transport links, large shopping areas, lots of restaurants and a popular nightlife scene, especially for foreigners. The hotels here range in price from economy to luxury, so most travellers will find something to suit their budget.

Ginza

Ginza is one of Tokyo’s shopping meccas; its streets are filled with a seemingly endless rank of shops, which are primarily made up of luxury boutiques and designer labels. This neighbourhood also has an excellent nightlife, with plenty of restaurants and high-end bars and clubs, which punctuate the stores that line its avenues.

You will find that Ginza has great links to the celebrated Tsukiji Fish Market—one of the largest in the world—where you can witness the wheels of the Japanese food industry move. Generally, you’ll find that the hotels in Ginza are high-class and luxurious due to the swanky crowd this neighbourhood attracts.

Shinjuku

Whilst Ginza might have luxurious nightclubs, it is really Shinjuku that steals the show when the sun sets. It is the more famous of the two for its night time revels and offers a little more in the way of idiosyncrasy. You will find the scene here much more rowdy, and in some places a little X-rated, but for the most part this is an adult playground, and if you are a night owl, then staying here is where you’ll want to be.

Harajuku

Right next to Shinjuku is Harajuku, and this is where young fashionistas come to walk the Takeshita Dori, filled to the brim with little shops selling cheap and unique clothes. There are lots of little eateries down this way, and the atmosphere thrums with life.

It is easy to access the Meiji Jingu Shrine from this part of the city, as it sits in the lovely Yoyogi Park, right next door. A wander here will bring you a little peace and tranquillity outside of the hopping and heaving Harajuku area, and is definitely worth some of your time.

Ueno 

For culture vultures, Ueno is the ideal neighbourhood as it has loads of attractions that will give visitors an insight into Japanese culture and history, especially at the Tokyo National Museum. Tech heads and science geeks should make for the National Science Museum, which houses a variety of brilliant and fascinating exhibitions from natural history to science and technology.

Ueno also has kept an older atmosphere, which stands in contrast to the more modern neighbourhoods of Tokyo. Here you’ll come across traditional homes, and narrow passageways that hark back to an earlier time in the city’s history.

Hibiya

Home to the most prestigious Japanese citizen, the Emperor, you can find Tokyo’s impressive Imperial Palace nestled between the East Garden and Hibiya Park. Though the palace isn’t open to the public, the parks are, and they are worth exploring. Otherwise you’ll find the rest of this neighbourhood is dedicated to the high rises that house the big businesses of the city.

Transport in Tokyo

The transportation in Japan, and in particular Tokyo, is excellent. Both efficient and cheap you can easily make your way around the city using the comprehensive subway and railway systems. Pick up the prepaid IC cards that you can buy at any of the rail stations, and you will see just how easy it is to travel around Japan’s capital.
