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.

  • It is raining the whole day today so we went to Tokyo toy museum with my 2y old boy. The place is just perfect for his age and older! There are lots of different toys, mostly wooden toys that kids can...  more »
  • We walk here from Shinjuku goenmae but it is a little off the beaten track for tourists. It was FULL of local families with their kids. The "museum" is 4-5 plays rooms with age appropriate toys spread...  more »

  • It might be a little difficult to find, but it is definitely worth it. It is a great place to take you toddler or small child. lots of things to do to pass several hours. You can also buy the wonderful toys.
  • The best place to go with your kids. Inexpensive and kids can spend hours there forgetting all about time. Only minus is there are no refreshments or food to get there. But still worth the 5 stars. My 2 year old loves it!!
  • I brought four kids there, ranging from 8 to 13yo, and they all enjoyed it very much. We ended up spending more than four hours there! (Until it closed!) It's generally a place of designer, wood-based toys. Most toys are of very high quality, very interesting, challenging to the mind and good for bonding. Adults would play along on some board games. There are also two toy-making workshops for young and older kids, respectively. I feel the museum didn't get its well deserved place without having a proper, dedicated building (it's housed in an old school building sharing with another community project). It's a must go for kids/families in Tokyo.
  • Great place to bring young children especially toddlers. Has a nice selection of wooden toys for kids to play
  • The Tokyo Toy Museum was simply a delight from start to finish. Housed in an old elementary school, the museum has thousands of lovely toys our grandparents would have recognized made from wood and cloth. Total bonus was the wooden hospital complete with MRI/ CT suites. A wooden ball pit? How about a car that contains a music box? My very energetic toddler spent hours here and not once did I hear a request for iPad. I love how much emphasis was placed on having seniors play with children through toys- fun was very much had on both sides. The gift shop was dedicated to Japanese artisanal toys : somewhere on the spectrum between art piece and toy.
