Where to stay
Sleep in style in Tokyo
Tokyo is one of the world's largest cities and as such, accommodation options are practically endless. Glittering Shibuya is an obvious starting point, featuring a frenetic cityscape, superb dining and a lively nightlife scene. Ginza is home to some of Tokyo's best shopping, while sprawling Shinjuku boasts plenty of hotel options – including the Park Hyatt famously featured in the film 'Lost In Translation'.
Most visitors to Tokyo spend at least some time in Roppongi, the foreign-friendly nightlife hub renowned for its mix of upscale clubs and decidedly edgy vibe. At the other end of the spectrum is Asakusa; an ancient district on the banks of the Sumida River famous for its Senso-ji temple and budget accommodation.
Tokyo also features plenty of business hotels, many of which you'll find around commuter hubs like Shinagawa and Ikebukuro. Wherever you choose to stay, you're unlikely to run out of things to see and do.
