Tokyo

Community Quote

I have recently returned from a work related trip to Asia, my first stop on the three-week trip was Tokyo. I have to say this was by far the best place I visited and I hope one day I will return. I had read a Rough Guide travel book and some Ciao ops to prepare me for what I expected to ... Read review

Turning Japanese

AdvantagesMany, a wonderful, cultural experience

DisadvantagesNone I can recall

"...which is a district of Tokyo dominated by hotels and restaurants. It was a great base for a stay in Tokyo. My hotel, Shinagawa Prince was in an ideal place, right by the train station and central to many restaurants. My room was on the 29th floor and I had great views of the skyline. Just through the train station was the business district where my company’s office was, so I had a leisurely 15-minute walk to the office every day. With regard ..." Read review

The Beckoning Cats of Tokyo

AdvantagesCulture. Interesting

DisadvantagesDifficult for foreigners to understand the cultural significance

"...in countless streets of Tokyo and any other of Japan’s major cities. If you take a peep into the windows of the noodle shop, eateries of all types and stores, you will come across the Maneki-Neko grinning somewhat impudently at you from the counter and inviting you into to savour the produce of the shop. In business, the Maneki-Neko is believed to bring success because her raised paw beckons in customers. It also welcomes in personal happiness ..." Read review

Satisfy your appetite

AdvantagesNowhere is like this city

DisadvantagesLong flight from Europe

"...Japanese food. Eating out in Tokyo can be cheap, reasonable or expensive. Here are some tips from me for you to enjoy the city more without being able to speak or read Japanese. Japan is well known as “non English speaking society”, even in the big international city Tokyo. On your arrival you will realise that not everything is sign-posted in English but probably very basic information for transports and tourist spots. As transports in Japan is very ..." Read review

Don't eat the FUGU.

AdvantagesAn amazing, fascinating city. Great food.

DisadvantagesToo much concrete.

"...– Akihabara (2 stops from Tokyo on the clean/fast/reliable subway system) is one of the essential Tokyo experiences. Electronic goods are previewed here up to 18 months before release in the UK. From recordable DVD players to playstation 2 – this is where you will see these things first. Sightseers should avoid Ueno zoo – for anyone who hasn’t worked in a vivisection laboratory this will be an intensely depressing experience. Still, you don’t fly ..." Read review

Tokyo rocks 24/7

AdvantagesFriendly, loads of things to do, good public transport,

Disadvantagesexpensive, expensive, expensive

"The last time I visited Tokyo was way back in 92 - a flying 3 week trip through Japan spending 7 days in the capital. Even though Tokyo is (was) a hugely expensive place to visit you simply must take in the sites at least once in your life. Tokyo is a heavily populated concrete jungle of a place, that doesn't have the openess of a London, the style of Milan or the chic of Paris. What it does have is a kinetic energy that surpasses all three ..." Read review
