Is there more to shopping in Tokyo than main street stores?

Yes, there are many others! If you like souvenirs/food stalls/cheap and varied goods, head to Nakamise Street between Sensoji Temple and Kaminarimon Gate, Ameyayokocho Street near Ueno Park, and in Shinjuku and Shibuya for cheap stores with knick-knacks. There are many other artisan shops, where the owners actually make their own goods, too!

4 stars Shinjuku Prince Hotel Good 7.7
2 stars Tokyo Inn Good 7.3 What I liked about Tokyo Inn is it is right next to Magome train station. This allows travellers to have comfortable access to other places in Tokyo. The distance between these two is merely 10-15 steps. It is also located in front of a 24 hour convenience store where japanese food can be bought. Behind the hotel is a supermarket, authentic ramen bar, and a food district if you like to eat freshly prepared japanese sushi/maki.
5 stars Hotel Okura Tokyo Fabulous 8.7 Classic charm of the 1960's Japanese decor
3 stars Shibuya Granbell Hotel Very good 8.4 It was a beyond perfect location! Its was not crazy noisy but 5 minute walk to the busy Shibuya areaand subway! Clean, great location and nice staff. Loved it and will def stay here next time in Tokyo!

    See It to Believe It!

    The capital of Japan, Tokyo is a vast, teeming metropolis nestled between mountains and Tokyo Bay. It’s so huge that you’ll have to come to grips with public transport and maybe even experience being pushed onto a train. Yes, it does actually happen!

    Get your bearings by ascending the Tokyo World Trade Centre near the waterfront, and savour the fantastic views taking in the red-and-white Tokyo Tower and Shinkuju’s skyscrapers. North is Ueno, home to the best museums (including the Tokyo National Museum) and a large park bursting with cherry blossom in spring.

    Equally tranquil are the Chiyoda Imperial Palace and Gardens, surrounded by water. Also in gardens is the Meiji Jingu Shinto shrine in Shibuya, a youthful district where neon abounds.

    For more traditional Japanese culture, head to Asakusa whose Sensō-ji Buddhist temple is Tokyo’s oldest temple. Markets in the grounds sell a variety of wares, though shopping in Tokyo is, of course, fantastic wherever you go.

    Whether you stay in a Japanese ryokan, luxury Tokyo hotel or a hostel, don’t fly out of Tokyo Narita Airport or Haneda Airport without having tried sushi. Another Japanese institution is the sento (public bath) and onsen (hot springs bath) – a must try. Also incredibly popular are Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, Asia’s 2 most visited theme parks.

    Hotels that guests love in Tokyo

    • There's a Don Quijote store just underneath the hotel where we bought a couple of types of pocky including panda which are pretty nice, on the other side of the road is a rollercoaster and ferris wheel and a little bit further on is the Tokyo Dome where you might see some music acts. The room was a bit nicer than others we've stayed in with a better layout. Restaurant in the same building was nice and cheap too.

    • My impressions of Tokyo hotels were compact (shoe box) rooms at ridiculous prices. Nikko Tokyo pretty much stopped these perceptions dead in their tracks. The rooms were large, modern and staff fantastic. The location requires a train ride to the main sites of Tokyo, but it is nice to return to the hotel away from the frenzy that is central Tokyo. The pool/spa is worth visiting for the view alone.

    • Cosy, arty , cheap, charming and cool hôtel, very well located , prices are good, Just lack of a bit of standing

    • Te regular price for room with single bed but fir double use is 11,000 yens so the deals from bookings mean nothing... Bed is very hard but comfortable. If you only sleep there its very good hotel. Quiet good wifi connection.
