First time Tokyo travellers...

by nomesie

A friend and myself (1 male, 1 female) are arriving in Tokyo on 14th August for 4 / 5 days. We are both students, therefore we are trying to experience as much of the culture as we can, whilst not spending a fortune!

We want to see what I expect are the usual tourist attractions of Tokyo - Imperial Palace, Sumo Museum, Kaminarimon and Sensoji Temple, Tsujiki Market, Tokyo Tower and Harajuku on a Sunday! Any other ideas would be much welcomed too!

As I'm a bit of a Disney fanatic, having worked for the company, we're also hoping to get a "Starlight" or "After 6" ticket to see the park. What would be the easiest way for us to get there?

On our first night, we are hoping to stay in a capsule hotel, just for the experience! This will probably be in Asakusa as they seem to be the only ones that allow females to stay! Since Tokyo has many centres, we are unsure of where would be best to stay for the remainder of our trip. Given the things we'd like to see and do, which areas would be recommended for us to stay in?

We would also like to visit Mount Fuji. Are we better going on an arranged tour, or simply getting a bus and making our own way there and back?

Sorry for the many questions, but we just want to make the most of our short time in such a fabulous city!!
Thanks!
Naomi

Take a look at my Tokyo page for getting some ideas. I hope my tips will be helpful.

We're not planning to spend an entire day in disney - just from 6 til 10pm probably with the after 6 ticket. What, or Where is Nikko?

We figure that it'll probably work out cheaper getting a twin or double room, instead of 2 singles. I think our budget will be around 10,000Y for a room, per night.

We're quite happy to use the transport systems to get to where we want to go, but just wondered if there's an area that has particularly good links to the places we want to go to!

Thanks for your suggestions so far guys :)

Re: First time Tokyo travellers...

I would recommend staying around Shinbashi Station. It is within walking distance of many polular toursit sites, the Imperial Palace, Ginza, and Tsukiji market, and it offers easy train connections to Tokyo Tower (oedo line), the sumo museum (again the oedo line), Harajuku (yamanote line), Kaminarimon and Sensoji Temple (asakusa line), etc...

Disney is a one transfer trip from Shinbashi, either the Yurakucho or Keiyo line via the Yamanote.

As for staying in a capsule... I would suggest that you don't do it. It is an uncomfortable way to get a poor nights sleep. The negative experience outweighs the novelty factor. Keep in mind that capsules were built to house drunken business men who have passed out and missed their last train home... for some reason tourists think this is a cute novelty.

Searching Shinabshi/Shiodome will provide you with many results. Here is a great hotel that may be within student budgets:

Travel Tips for Tokyo

Stay a few weeks! This...

by Pavlik_NL

Stay a few weeks! This megalopolis is bigger then big and not for nothing the largest city in the world. It's agglomerations counts 30 million people and according to the landmass that it's one, the people must be packed in boxes (which sometimes indeed is like that. Still the business of Tokyo makes it's littel secrets even more special. The parks, the temples and some other places where you can find a miracelous peacefullness. The city kept it's balance, which on it's own can be considered to be a miracle. A drive over rainbowbridge at night gives you a breathtaking view of the million lights of Tokyo.

The Ever-Changing Lights of Odaiba

by FelixB

On of Tokyo's newest attractions is the Rainbow Bridge that was modelled after the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. Its name comes from the fact that its color changes constantly between all the colors of the rainbow.
When going to the architectural wonderland Odaiba you will either take a ferry or take the Monorail Yurikamome that runs over the bridge (assuming you have a car, you could also take the highway that runs over it).
Best viewed from the decks in front of Aqua City/Joypolis at Daiba; although Rainbow Bridge is nice during daylight, too, the best time to see it is definitely at night. Make sure you have a long exposure time when taking a picture for catching every single light of it.

Squat Toilet

by vigi

Although there are te most talk-about high tech toilet in Tokyo, some public places (especially train station) still maintain old squat toilets. Most of them are clean and provide toilet paper, although there is exceptions.

Very polite and helpful

by clueless83

The Japanese have always had a reputation for being polite and our short experience of Tokyo confirmed this.

On our first night we ended up at the wrong hotel, in the dark and pouring rain. The bell man at the hotel got a taxi to take us to the hotel we were booked at and even helped us load our suitcases into the taxi!

On our first day we were standing in the train station and were trying to make our way to Harajuku but unfortunately neither of us speak or read Japanese so even though we had Harajuku on our English/Japanese map we struggle to work out which stop we needed and how much the fare was going to be. A lovely Japanese man approached us even though he could not speak a word of English, somehow with alot of pointing to various maps etc we got to Harajuku and suddenly the Japanese system seemed to be a whole lot clearer!

When we got to Harajuku we had some lunch at Wendys (don't judge us! we were experiencing a culture shock and we don't even have Wendys in the UK). Anyway, we were trying to work out how to get to the Oriental Bazaar shop and a really nice girl who was also dining in there came up to us and asked if we needed any help, told us how to get to the shop and then asked if we needed any more help!

We also met a friendly random man in Akihabara who asked if he could take our photograph and got us to guess his age... i think he just wanted to practice his English on us!

The only disappointing thing about the Japanese was that none of them did the Hiro Nakamura (from Heroes) Yatta!!! ;-)

Give me a machine any day

by sourbugger

Vending machines seem to be in breeding overdrive in Japan. I heard one source say there were over six million and still going strong.

I think they would only work in a society that is on the whole very law abiding, like Japan.

As a visitor it is the vast range of products that is available that amazes. Whilst soft drinks seems to account for about half of the the range, the selection of wierd concoctions available is suprising. It makes dandelion and Burdock look somewhat tame.

We saw machines for coffee in a tin (not as bad as it sounds), beer, food, Johnnies,manga and porn.

The illusive one was the machine that sells used schoolgirl panties - do they really exist or is it an urban myth?
