  • And gomigomi would be the perfect place to travelers who like the hustle and bustle. An experience of the downtown area is attractive and also foreign tourists may be. Struggling to find the shop because the place is too crowded.

  • Student is well come. Had changed the station a little if you come to after a long time, but did not changed the city. Shimo-Kitazawa laid-back femininity as it is. Nice vintage shop has a lot.

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.
