  • I wanted to exercise around the Imperial Palace and was thrilled to find this beautifully constructed path. It was being used at 6:30 AM by many runners and walkers, but it did not feel crowded at all...  more »
  • I went a long time. People are many small places are dangerous, too. And running too many columns or skipping. No signal at around 5 km is good. Up and down, takebashi slope is pretty tight.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
