  • Get off at Nippori station. This can be a confusing station, so be sure to check you are taking the correct direction to your exit through beautiful Yanaka Cemetery. Make your way towards Yanaka Ginza...  more »
  • Surprisingly not crowded from the tourist crowds. A good excursion within the city. Especially the walk along the Yanaka Ginza and the cemetery are well worth seeing.

  • Wonderful neighbourhood just to wander, for coffee shops, crafts and fantastic street food. Walk up the main street and see the cat statues on the roof tops!  more »

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.
