Best Tokyo Hotels
When are the best times to travel to Tokyo?Japan’s futuristic mega-city is equally exciting at any time of year, whether you come to lap up the golden-brown autumnal beauty that comes between September and November, or throw yourself into the dazzle of summer in the big city. Those in seek of natural grandeur should time their visit to coincide with the cherry blossom season in March and April, when areas like Ueno Park and Shinjuku Gyoen are swathed in ethereal pinks and purples.
What are the top must-see attractions in Tokyo?For a taste of Japanese history, make a pilgrimage to the Meiji Shrine. Created to honour the 19th-century emperor who transformed the country into a world power, it’s Tokyo’s most famous Shinto shrine, surrounded by sweeping, cypress-filled parklands. A very contemporary contrast is the Tokyo Tower, which has an Eiffel Tower-like lattice structure, yet is actually taller than the famous Paris landmark. For spectacular views of Tokyo, take a walk along the Rainbow Bridge, which earns its name at nightfall when it’s drenched in colourful lights.
What are the best types of food and restaurants in Tokyo?In terms of sheer artistry, Tokyo is the culinary capital of the world, boasting more 3-star Michelin restaurants than you might think possible. Yet it’s not just about fine dining in sleek surroundings – your Tokyo hotel will also put you close to street food spots serving battered octopus balls, yakitori meat skewers and crispy fish-shaped waffles. A foodie quarter popular with the locals is Yurakucho, where no-frills eateries are tucked beneath the elevated tracks of the Yamanote Line, forming an atmospheric and buzzing warren of tempting treats.
What are the top things to do in Tokyo?It might sound unlikely, but one of the major cultural draws in Japan’s capital is an exhibition space devoted to masterpieces from the other side of the world. The National Museum of Western Art is a treasure trove of works by the likes of Rubens, Monet and Pollock, housed in a Brutalist building designed by the great Le Corbusier. Meanwhile, the neon-lit nightlife quarter of Kabukicho makes for a decadent night time adventure, while families should flock to the thunderous rides and fairy tale carousels of Tokyo Disneyland.
What are some fun facts about Tokyo?It may come as a surprise to learn that Tokyo only became the capital of Japan as relatively recently as the 19th century. Before that, Kyoto had been the capital for a 1,000 years. These days, Tokyo is famed for its epic architecture, including the Tokyo Skytree, which, excluding skyscrapers, is actually the tallest tower in the world. The city has been the birthplace of many famous people over the past century, including singer Yoko Ono, filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, and Gone with the Wind star Olivia de Havilland.
What kinds of public transport are there in Tokyo?To travel in Tokyo, you’ll almost certainly make use of the famous subway network, which is an invaluable service for exploring this intricate metropolis. Yet the most iconic piece of public transport is actually above ground – this is the JR Yamanote Line, which forms a loop around the heart of the city, defining the centre of Tokyo. Most visitors will only need to make use of the Yamanote and subway lines to make the most of their time here.
