  • Japan picked up in Japanese or in English and do not know if Shin-Okubo station in Wuxi to come, you can feel comfortable in. There are numerous restaurants and a district Bureau of the Korean-speaking staff. First came a comfortable start in Japan. But again, there is no reluctant watch.

  • It was less during the week before the little people, but also because of the popularity of the Chuncheon see lots of come! Came out on the sheer numbers of people meet in front of Shin-Okubo station (especially holiday) station "ゔ done!..." and is hell because it is very narrow, and I will pass or when people want to overtake, and hurry. But the fun's crowded streets.

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.
