Tokyo, Japan

TRIP LENGTH: 6 Days
SEASON: Summer

Traveling around Japan can be a tough thing to do especially when you don’t know where you’re going and you can’t speak the language. Real good set up to get around a city right? Well, hopefully I can give you a few tips on some of the wonderful things in this amazing city!

WHERE WE STAYED:
Centurion Hotel GrandAkasaka, Tokyo, Japan
This hotel ended up being a diamond in the rough. It was located in Akasaka, Tokyo and was surrounded by tons of restaurants (that were reasonably priced and delicious to say the least). From ramen to yakitori to sushi and everything in between, I’d say that it wasn’t hard to find lunch or dinner.

HOW WE GOT TO THE HOTEL:
From the Narita Airport to Tokyo Station
At the Narita Airport, take the Narita Express (NEX) train to Tokyo station (~4,000Â¥ round trip) Website: http://www.jreast.co.jp/e/index.html

From the Tokyo Station to Hotel
It was definitely a great choice to take a taxi cabs from the Tokyo Station to the hotel for our first time. I’d highly recommend it because once we knew where our hotel was, we were able to take the subway as our main means of transportation.

To and From Different Cities
Tokyo has an amazing public transportation system in place, that makes traveling between cities very easy. Daily subway tickets cost only about $6USD and the maps and signs are in English, making it easy to go pretty much anywhere you’d like to.
