With so much to take in and so many neighborhoods to explore, the location of your hotel is key to a fabulous Tokyo vacation. Consider these guest favorites as you plan the great escape:
The Greater Tokyo Area may be the most populous metropolitan center in the world, but you can still find places to wander through natural wonders and savor serenity—in fact, among locals, Tokyo is known as the City of Woods. Spend a quiet morning or afternoon smelling the roses and relaxing beneath shade trees at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, or stop to admire the architecture and immerse yourself in tradition at the Meiji Shrine, which stands in homage to the 19th century emperor.
To continue a whirlwind tour of Tokyo’s past and present, visit the Imperial Palace, the Tokyo National Museum, and Senso-ji, an ancient Buddhist temple. For delicious Japanese cuisine and drinks, head to the trendy Ebisu neighborhood and sample the sake. To tip the scales of a romantic vacation in Tokyo all the way to “Ooh, la la,” ride to the Tembo Deck of Tokyo Skytree to dine on gourmet delights with one of the best views in the city—and we don’t just mean the smile on your special someone’s face.
No matter when you can get away on your vacation in Tokyo, there’s likely a festival that will sweep you off your feet and into the joyous city streets. Tokyo kicks off the new year by spending time with loved ones and lots of delicious food. In May celebrate Tokugawa Ieyasu's win at the battle of Sekigahara at the Kanda Matsuri Festival, one of the three major Shinto festivals. Colorful parades fill the streets of Tokyo with dancing and glistening floats called mikoshi, which are believed to transport deities from shrine to shrine. On the last weekend of July, fireworks light up the sky over Sumida River and Tokyo Bay during Hanabi Taikai—settle in to watch the show from Sumida Koen Park or along the river.
