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.

  • Well organized museum, chronologically ordered starting in Meiji on the 4th floor and work the way down. 500 yen to enter, and it is conveniently located close to Takebashi station and a lot of other sightseeing spots.
  • Really well organised museum with an interesting collection of art. They have free admission every first Sunday of the month!
  • pretty cool art museum right across the street from the imperial gardens! admission is pretty cheap there, and not crowded on the weekdays, and is relatively easy to find, and a close walk from the train station.
  • one of a few quiet places in Tokyo. recommended for those who want to see Japanese modern art and take some nice rest from busy streets in Japan. reasonable price compared to any entertainment in Tokyo
  • Excellent display and galleries showing the progression of art through Meiji and Showa periods of Japanese art.
