Hotels in Tokyo

by biggsall

We are travelling to Tokyo for the first time in March. Where is a good location to stay that is easy to access from Narita Airport and for getting around to tourist destination within Tokyo?

Re: Hotels in Tokyo

by walterwu

If you are looking for easy access to and from Narita Airport, then Ueno, Tokyo, Shinjuku might be a good place to look for location to stay.

See train map from airport on:
http://www.narita-airport.jp/en/access/train/index.html

For rail access to the Airport, both the Skyliner and the Narita Express (operated by 2 different operators) would be good. Narita Express is by Japan Rail.

I would not suggest staying at a hotel near Narita airport for the purpose of sightseeing in Tokyo. the airport is at least an hour away from the city, each way, and the trip gets to be very expensive. It would be much better to use a hotel in the city itself.

Re: Hotels in Tokyo

by GrumpyDiver

I agree 100% with Dave. The airport is not in a convenient location for sightseeing. Stay in the downtown Tokyo area instead.

I think, the best on the Yamanote loop line, and near the central Tokyo station. We stayed at this nice hotel http://www.ezchoicehotels.com/ It is 5 minutes from Tokyo Station, very convenient.

Your best choice would be Tokyo Station or Shinjuku Station in terms of easy access to and from Narita AND easy access around Tokyo. Ueno and Shinagawa and possibly Ikebukuro are the next easiest as they are not the best places for people to get around Tokyo. Nippori is also a viable option but a bit difficult to get around.

As for other options, you can also think about taking the Limousine Bus. Anywhere around the Yamanote with a stop on one of the bus routes would be great. Sometimes it's easier as you don't have to trudge your bags from the station to the hotel, just get out and you're there. It all depends on the hotel as some are not as convenient as others.

Hello.

I won't recommend staying hotels near the Narita Airport.

How about staying around the Asakusa,Ueno Area.It's comparatively cheap to stay hotels around this area in Tokyo.

See the website below,you can find good hotels.

Travel Tips for Tokyo

Arigatou to all Japanese!!!

by dma26

Japanese are such an amazing people. They like to smile at people, willing to help and are very accomodating. So in appreciation to these wonderful traits they have, try to learn to say "Arigatou" (thank you) and believe me, it will make someone's day.

A must see and do activity is...

by beckyj

A must see and do activity is to go to Tokyo Disneyland...just goo extra early so you have all day to actually try and do everything. Sitting in one of the many coffee shops and talking to my closest friend for hours

Tickets to Tokyo Tower

by muddybok

There are 2 tickets sold separately to get to the top of Tokyo Tower. The first ticket will get you to the middle section, where lots of merchants will sell you stuffs. The second ticket will get you to the observation section.

The view from Tokyo Tower is magnificent. I can't describe for you, but you've to do-it-yourself.


There are rubber stamps for you to make stamping on your tickets at both observation levels. You can stamp them however way you want it, just don't take/steal the stamping home.

Smoking Room

by vigi

I think... in some area such as Akihabara, smoking on the streets is not allowed. So, they have these Smoking Rooms along the road, with vendor machines selling drinks and cigarettes and seats for those who need to smoke or want a rest.

The Little Things

by koolkatz_76

Japan is an extremely polite country, where shouts of "Irasshaimase" ring out when you enter any shop, and salespeople thank you profusely for making a purchase.

When paying for your purchase, you will usually see a little tray where you're supposed to lay your o-kane (money) or credit card. So don't hand over your cash; instead lay it on the tray and the staff will pick it up.

Ordering food is not as difficult as you would imagine, because the shops usually lay out models of their dishes in the front, so you can see what you order. In some shops, you should be able to get a menu in English, if you ask.

Business travellers should take note always to bring an ample supply of namecards, particularly when you are being introduced to new people. Name cards should be handed over with both hands, with the card facing your recipient.

When addressing people, regardless of gender, you should call them by their last name, and add an honorific -san behind. E.g. Honda-san, Oda-san....

And as you would for any business occasion, remember to be punctual. Always make allowance for travel times, particularly if you're braving the morning crush on the trains.

One very useful word I've picked up is "sumimasen", which could mean anything from "excuse me" to "thank you" to "can I have your attention please". It's especially useful in restaurants or shops if you want to attract the staff's attention.
