    Expensive???

    by SELVA73 Updated Oct 24, 2010

    Favorite thing: If you are just a tourist, the answer is no. Because the souvenirs and the transportation is not as expensive than other places. But if you want to buy a flat or rent an apartment, maybe it is.
    It depends on your budget, of course.
    We went three times to Japan and we stayed in a very convinient ryokan in Tokyo very cheap.
    But if you want to buy Hermes or something... prepare your wallet.
    And eating is also very cheap if you choose well. You can eat gyoza and noodles all over the city from very good prices.
    Enjoy your visit!!

    Scenery along the train journey to Tokyo

    by victorwkf Written Dec 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of the advantages of taking the JR rail train from Narita Airport to Tokyo is that you can enjoy nice scenery along this 80 minute journey. The train will pass by flat farmland, as well as several small towns (including Narita itself) before slowly arriving at the skyscraper city of Tokyo which is of contrast to the small towns. More information is at the transportation section of this VT page.

    New & Old

    by victorwkf Written Dec 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of the charms about Tokyo is that you can find new and modern skyscrapers in existence side by side to historical buildings such as shrines, temples etc. For example, the Zozoji Shrine is situated near to the Tokyo Tower, and the shrines of Yoyoji Park are also flanked by nearby tall buildings.

    Flowers in Tokyo

    by victorwkf Written Dec 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Although Tokyo is a highly populated and concrete jungle, there are still many beautiful parks in the city area with beautiful trees and flowers. One of my fondest memories of Tokyo are the beautiful flowers in the parks, as well as the colourful foliage colours of autumn.

    Visiting Tokyo in autumn

    by victorwkf Written Dec 1, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of the best seasons to visit Tokyo must be in autumn when the days are generally clear with nice cooling weather, and of course the colourful autumn leaves. One thing to note is that the colourful autumn leaves in Tokyo are at their best during mid-November to mid-December, which is a bit late as compared to many other places around the world. You can check out the website below for the best autumn viewing period in Tokyo and surroundings:

    Tokyo Bay

    by victorwkf Written Jun 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Tokyo Bay is a huge bay in the southern Kanto region of Japan, surrounded by the Boso Peninsula (Chiba Prefecture) and the Miura Peninsula (Kanagawa Prefecture). The ports of Tokyo, Chiba, Kawasaki, Yokohama, and Yokosuka are all located on Tokyo Bay. On the western coast of Tokyo Bay, between Tokyo and Yokohama, the Keihin Industrial Area has been developed since the Meiji Era. This was expanded to the Keiyo Industrial Area along the north and east coasts after World War II. More photographs of Tokyo Bay are at the travelogue section of this VT page.

    You'd Never Think It, But You Must...

    by tigerjapan Written Feb 13, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: People coming to Tokyo would not probably think of cakes and sweets, but truth be told the Japanese have a sweet tooth. You can try all sorts of traditional sweet treats, but also be sure to try the more modern favourites... the cakes and cream puffs, mousses and tarts. You'll find amazing treats in the basements of major department stores and also a number of chain cake stores around the major cities (these are generally cheaper and not as good however).
    In my Tokyo-to restaurants hints I have a hint on a truly amazing cake shop in Ueno-Sakuragi. The picture for this tip is a cake from that cake shop. The line is long ever day so if you are going to try that one go early or be prepared to wait. It's worth the wait!!

    FOR THOSE WHO LIVE IN TOKYO

    by Kojidaiyo Written Jan 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There is a wonderful way to save money when dining out etc in Tokyo. This would be best for those who live here or those that will be in Tokyo for some time. There is a new book, called Tokyo Coupons that has 50% discounts on food books. You can find out more and buy the book online at;

    http://www.tokyocoupons.com

    Select English from this menu and see what is on offer. I used it once and made my money back (we ate a lot). The book costs 3000 yen, but has many discounts (also for beauty treatments and hair cutting and even accomodation).

    Fondest memory: This book is a great way to make your time in Tokyo a bit less expensive!!!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: The fruits, I mean!

    Imagine the chances of finding Durians & Pomelo in Tokyo!
    & the price?
    4000 yen! That's US$38 for a durian!!!
    Geez, whoever buys them must be a fanatic, lol...

    I love durians, but these fruits are really cheap in Indonesia!
    US$38?! I can hire a maid for an entire month!!!

    But globalisation is awesome, as long as you've the $$$, you can buy almost anything these days!

    Impeccable Service!

    by Sharrie Written Apr 15, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: What a welcome!
    I was on the way to the hotel on the Limousine Bus & we stopped by the 1st hotel in Shinagawa.

    The hotel had a few of their stuff all lining up to welcome its guests!
    That's pure VIP treatment!
    Many a times, some hotels in other parts of the world don't even bother to greet its guests at the front desks! & I'm talking about 5* hotels!
    Made me wonder at times how these 5* had been assigned!

    Anyway, on a more distant past, I remembered All Nippon Airlines had all their counter-staff bidding farewell to a jumbo jet 747 while in Washington D.C.!
    That really made a lasting impression!
    I had been on many airlines, but I had never seen anyone bidding goodbyes to a jumbo jet at the side of the runway!

    What can I say other than the Japanese sure know how to treat their customers!
    Keep up the great attitude!!!

    1st class treatment!

    Shinjuku on a Sunday evening

    by Sharrie Written Apr 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Just to let VTers have an idea of how crowded Tokyo can be.
    It is this vibrancy about Tokyo that's drawing many people from all walks of life to the city.
    I'm no exception.
    The closest cities in Asia that has such a "pulse" is Shanghai & Hong Kong.

    For first timers to this city, it takes quite a lot of concentration to navigate the city.
    For me, my 1st time was too young for me to recall my experience.
    But I remembered I love shopping here then.
    It's a kid's paradise... a parent's nightmare!
    One has to be well-to-do to afford most things in Tokyo.
    Temptations are great here. No doubt about that. Even for the adults.
    Nowhere in the world is one given such a huge variety of choices with regard to each single product. i.e., consumerism reigns!

    Hence, it's a paradise for the rich; hell for the poor...

    Consumerism reigns!

    Favorite thing: I knew I like Sakura & I knew I love Japan.
    But never had I thought I love Spring as much!

    After staying in Canada for a few years, I knew I love Autumn.
    It's the time when Canada is most beautiful... with all the colorful maple leaves.
    It's afterall my season since I was borned in October.

    But Spring in Japan... the last 4 days had been perfect!
    Everything! The weather, the people, the flowers & my wellbeing.
    Well, almost ;-)
