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.

  • Very nice museum with interesting exhibitions. I recommend the café. They serve sets like matcha and wagashi for around 1000 yen.
  • This museum can really open one's eyes to the diversity of nihonga, or modern Japanese-style painting. They prepare free English pamphlets for their changing exhibits too. The exhibition space is small and can quickly become crowded on Sundays and holidays, plus it is a tad expensive at 1200 yen. The cafe has matcha green tea and Japanese sweets specially created to match works in the exhibits, so can make for an interesting rest stop.
  • This is the only museum I had time to visit in Tokyo, we arrived just an hour before closing time. But "luckily" the museum is not too big, so you should not plan to spend hours there. That said I always was a great fan of Japanese watercolor paintings, and this little gem made me as happy as expected. The staff is superkind (as in every service in Japan), the museum shop has some interesting stuff.
  • A nice small museum with classic Japanese art.
  • That's incredible!
