Tokyo Accommodation

You'd think accommodation in a megalopolis like Tokyo would be easy to come by but I find I'm either:

1. overwhelmed by choice or

2. can't find anything decent and affordable or

3. can't find anything in the best 'burbs or

4. can't find a room that fits more than 2 tiny, skinny people

So hopefully this list will help!


Tokyo Station

The Tokyo Station area is simply unbeatable for convenience if you have a relatively short stay in the big city. Its directly connected to the airports, Disneyland, most train lines and of course Snowball Chalet! Its a hub of shopping and eating (including “Ramen Street” within the station) and nearby to many sights including the Imperial Palace, Ginza, Palace East Gardens, Sony Building, International Forum, National Museum of Modern Art (MOMAT) and Character Street (Hellooooo Kitty!)

Shinjuku

Shinjuku is a major city hub and represents the big-city buzz and bright lights of Tokyo. It directly connects with the airport, Mount Fuji area and other regions but you’ll have to head back to Tokyo Station if you want to experience the full joy of the new Hokuriku Shinkansen (Bullet Train) to Snowball Chalet. Nearby sights include Shinjuku Gyoen Park, Shinjuku Yokocho (one of our fave street food lanes), the best free city views in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, a plethora of food and shopping, nightlife and other nearby epicentres such as Shibuya and Harajuku.

Shibuya

Shibuya has a similar bustling atmosphere as Shinjuku but generally hosts a younger crowd. Shibuya Station is well connected to all forms of transport, though a little less-so than Tokyo or Shinjuku. The hectic Shibuya Crossing draws a constant stream of people, directing them off to a host of great food and shopping outlets, Yoyogi Park, Meiji Shrine and other nearby suburbs well-worth your while such as Harajuku, Ometesando, Naka-Meguro, Daikanyama and Kamiyama.
