  • For us it was a stop on the JR Shin Okubo Shinjuku and therefore very close to being very similar, we were to go to a neko Cafe (where caress cat) and then have toured and ate dinner here. Unique murals under the train tracks huge and beautiful with cartoon images of our times (80 years). Close to the metro station also has a large shopping centre but not visited.

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.
