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.

  • I went to this shrine because I'm a big Sailor Moon fan but stayed for a while because it was quiet and beautiful. The shrine priests working there are kind and helpful as well. If you have the time, go here. It's also extremely close to tokyo tower 🗼 the cherry blossoms around here were also beautiful. It's secluded and a must see for anyone visiting tokyo.
  • Very beautiful. Zero tourists (other than me). Path to here is small and doesn't look like it'll lead up to here. If you come here, please be respectful and quiet. It's not like the other touristic places. The peace and quiet was amazing plus there is just a beautiful path to walk through. I enjoyed it more than the other shrines so far! 5/5.
  • I like its location and set up. It's very quiet and secluded.
  • I stumbled across this shrine while out exploring the Roppongi area. Great quiet place amongst the bustle of Tokyo. There were no other tourists and was a very serene site.
  • Very tranquil and beautiful. No-tourist spot.
