Where is downtown Tokyo?

It's a big concern where to stay in a city you have never visited. We are frequently asked where the downtown Tokyo is. It's a bit difficult question to answer. How towns are formed is different from other cities. In Tokyo, train and subway make up big part of transportation. Therefore, usually you will find downtown around train stations.

Here are our suggestions where to stay in Tokyo

Ginza and Tokyo Station area

Tokyo Station area is also known as Marunouchi where Japanese tops companies has their head offices. Ginza in known as high-end shopping area. They are only 10 minutes' walk from each area. So, the area has many prestigious hotels and restaurants. Tokyo Station is the terminal station of the bullet train, Shinkansen It will be a good base of your travel.

Shinjyuku

Shinjyuku has a lot of skyscrapers in the west side. Those buildings have observatories and restaurants with good view that can be used for business dinners. On the other hand, the east side has department stores, bars and red-light district. So, in this area you will find various categories of shops and restaurants form high-end to not high-end.

Shibuya and Roppongi


In the daytime, Shibiya and Roppongi are towns different types. Shibuya is fashion town for young people from teens to 30s. Roppongi has high-end office buildings that accommodate big international IT companies and also many foreign embassies are located. But both towns are known for their busy night life. So, if you like busy night area, Shibuya and Roppongi are perfect places but if you prefer quiet areas, not for you.

Ueno


If you prefer to find cheap and traditional accommodations, Ueno area is good. Backpackers, business hotels and old Ryokans are fond in this area. We recommend you stay in good Japanese Ryokan at least one time. However, good Ryokans are fond in rural areas where have Onsen, or hot spring. In Tokyo Rokans are rather small family owned. Akihabara, the electric town is 10 minutes' walk from Ueno.

Ikebukuro

You will find reasonable hotels, shops, and restaurants here. Sanshine City is a big and reasonable fashion mall with many restaurants. However, Ikebukuro is not as convenient as a transportation hub. Your group tours may not start from Ikebukuro. Airport access and Shinkansen access are not so good here. When you get used to Tokyo's transportation you will have no problem.

Shinagawa


It's a quiet business district with big hotels like Prince Hotels. There are many restaurants but for shopping not so many. However, Shinagawa has good access to trains. Shinkansen, the bullet train, and NEX, Narita Airport access train, stop here. Also close to another Tokyo airport Haneda.
