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.

  • Cool place to stop by and browse the myriad shops. The Nakano station area is pretty good for exploring too. Worth the trip, and a change of pace from Akihabara.
  • If you are a second-hand goods kinda citizen, you'll probably find this joint appealing... I'm not but give it 2 stars for the great atmosphere.
  • Better than Akihabara if you are looking for manga, anime and videogames.
  • Great place for manga, vintage games, robots, dolls and comics. Also some nice food places around and a huge market in the basement.
  • Nakano Broadway is a great place to stroll with LOTS of good restaurants, lots of levels with stores, shops, coffee shops, bakeries, you name what you want and you'll find it! And it's covered, so even in the rain it's great! Fun for all ages!
