where to stay

by winnetwo

We are hopefully going to Tokyo in Late July. My idea is to stay near a Shinkansen station as we intend to get a Japan rail pass (we hope that it covers the fast trains) Preferably we like 4 star hotels at the right price and either be right in the hustle and bustle or in a quiet location with great views.

shinkansens to other parts of japan basically leave from the tokyo station (not from every station in tokyo) and i wouldnt necessarly stay too close to there.
you shouldnt worry, its easy using public transport in tokyo and more importantly, with your JR pass you can use lines like the yamanote, etc..
also since youre already in japan, the best type of accommodation would be a ryokan, a japanese style hotel. they have them with different stars as well.

japan pass covers all shinkansens but the nozomi. (there are 3 types of shinkansens, nozomi, hikari and kodama which is the slowest).

a quiet nice location would be at a ryokan in asakusa or ueno.

Planning is a good step, but without any idea as to what you want to do, it's hard to recommend a place. For example:

If you plan to travel a lot on the Shinkansen, you can base yourself in Tokyo, but this can be unrealistic as it's at least a couple hours to get to the next major city of interest. Day trips on the Shinkansen aren't recommended, at least by myself. If you stay in Kansai, day trips are possible. From Tokyo, day trips to Kyoto are tough, and Sendai is doable, but not easy either.

In terms of where to stay, if you want to be in the hustle and bustle, Hibiya/Yurakucho has many high class hotels (ie/ Penninsula) but they might be a bit too high being 5 stars and all. Shinbashi is popular too, and I would be hard pressed not to recommend it. Asakusa is good for the peace and quiet, and you can see the new Tokyo Sky Tree being built. If you want to stay on the west side, I prefer Shinjuku as it's in the middle of the hustle and bustle, and easy to get to Shibuya and so on. The east side isn't far either.

Don't use a JR Pass if you are only in Tokyo. Save it for any longer trips. Avoid activating it for periods in Tokyo, but if you overlap with it, then there is no problem.

One warning, when visiting Japan in late July, be prepared for the heat and humidity. :)

Ueno station is another major jumping board for the shinkansen. I stayed near here, was inexpensive and convenient. The Irish pub in the station was great too! My hotel was a business hotel, not terribly pretty to look at and not much amenities but the service was superb. It was called the Touganeya hotel. Another hotel near the station that looked up to your standards was the Mitsui Garden Hotel. Nice-looking, elegant, and smack dab next to the station on the opposite side of the park (east side of the station). Have fun!

Thank you all for your replies (so very prompt too). They have been very comprehensive and will definately help me in my planning.

if you decide to book a ryokan, you can do it through this excellent website

also most accept cash only (japan is still a very much cash society).

Travel Tips for Tokyo

by SfumatoPants

Your criteria, King size room, don't apply to Japanese hotels. Hotels usually charge per person, and the number of beds in a room, single or double. If you expect any more you will have to go to a large International hotel chain, and you should expect to pay a lot more.

If you really want my advice to have a nice stay, try my current favourite hotel - Park Hotel Shiodome - or across the street, the basic business hotel - Villa Fontaine Shiodome.

Keep in mind that any money you save on a hotel will wind up being spent on transportation to and from that hotel. The cheaper a hotel is the further away from the "it" areas it will be. The Shiodome area is great for tourists as there is a lot to do within WALKING distance.

by yulq

We have kids with us so an absolute must was the Tokyo Disneyland. But Sanio Puroland was a pue delight for them. The latter is an all weather place to go to. Everyone seemed to be in a rush as you take the trains but you will be surprised to be accommodated with an answer or two to your questionms for directions. And more likely, they will lead you to your way!

Kabuki-za Theater

by vigi

Kabuki - a unique tradtional Japanese opera. Kabuki-za Theater in Ginza is best to experience Kabuki in an exceptionally prestigious setting.

Even if you don't want to see a performance, it's worth a trip to see this antique Japanese architecture. Some old ladies' were wearing traditional kimono for the show. A big contrast with the cosmopolitan Ginza working crowd.
