Fast-paced Tokyo is like no other city in the world. With its towering skyscrapers, bustling subway stations and busy sidewalks, there’s a whole world to discover on every block.
Tokyo loves to shop. From your Tokyo accommodations, you’re close to the dozens of shopping districts around the city from Harajuka, where youth and pop culture rules, to Shibuya, the epicenter of fashion. Or you can visit one of the many specialty markets: Ginza for luxury items or Akihabara for electronics. Shop until you drop back into bed at your Tokyo hotel, or stay out and experience the city’s nightlife in Roppongi.
Those looking for the quieter side of Tokyo can visit the Asakusa district with its Sensoji Temple, built in the 7th century, or the Asakusa shrine, the location of a popular festival at the end of May. Spend an afternoon in Ueno Park touring the zoo or visiting its many museums and shrines. Kids visiting our Tokyo hotels will delight in a visit to Tokyo Disneyworld or Sanrio Puroland, home to Hello Kitty and other Sanrio characters.
