Where to stay in Tokyo first time: 11 Best areas

My partner and I visited Japan a few years ago, spending 10 wonderful days exploring Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. I understand that finding the right place to stay in Tokyo as a first-time visitor can be a bit challenging. 

That’s why, in today’s article, I will share with you what I believe are the best areas to stay in Tokyo for first-time travelers, along with a map. I’ll also share where we stayed in Tokyo and recommend some of the best hotels for various budgets.

Visiting Tokyo for the first time can be an exciting and somewhat overwhelming experience due to the city’s size, culture, and sheer number of things to see and do. Before going into the details of the main article, let’s look at some tips and recommendations for first-time visitors to Tokyo.

You can decide when to visit based on your preferences for weather and events. Spring, March to May (cherry blossoms) and autumn, September to November (fall foliage) are popular seasons. Research and plan your itinerary but leave some flexibility for spontaneity. 

Tokyo has an extensive and efficient public transportation system, including subways, buses, and trains. Consider buying an IC card like Pasmo or Suica for convenient use on the Tokyo Metro Line and JR Line. Consider buying a Japan Rail Pass if you plan to travel outside of Tokyo.

You can rent a pocket Wi-Fi device or buy a Japan SIM card at the Narita or Haneda airports to stay connected during your trip. Download apps like Hyperdia to navigate the train. 

Carry some cash, as not all places accept credit cards. ATMs at 7-Eleven and Japan Post are foreigner-friendly.

Try local dishes like sushi, ramen, tempura, and okonomiyaki at local restaurants. Don’t be afraid to explore small, local eateries for authentic experiences. Sample street food from stalls and markets like Tsukiji Fish Market and Nakamise Shopping Street in Asakusa.

Must-visit places include the Tokyo Skytree, Meiji Shrine, Senso-ji Temple, and Imperial Palace. You can explore neighborhoods like Shibuya (famous for the Shibuya Crossing), Harajuku (fashion and youth culture), and Akihabara (electronics and pop culture).

Those interested in the history and museums can consider visiting the Tokyo National Museum, Mori Art Museum, and teamLab Borderless for unique art and cultural experiences.

Tokyo is a shopping paradise. You can explore high-end shopping in Ginza, and enjoy the hustle and bustle of shopping streets in Shibuya and Harajuku. Visit the Ameya-Yokocho market for bargains and Asakusa for traditional souvenirs.

Tokyo is one of the safest cities in the world. But, like any tourist destination, it is always recommended to be cautious of your belongings, follow local laws and regulations.

You can also consider taking day trips to nearby destinations like Nikko, Kamakura, Yokohama, or Hakone for a change of scenery.

While many signs are in Japanese, you can get by with English in most tourist areas. Learning a few basic Japanese phrases like “hello” (konnichiwa) and “thank you” (arigatou gozaimasu) can be helpful. Follow local customs, such as not tipping in restaurants and respecting personal space.

Now comes the most important part of finding a hotel to stay: It is highly recommended for first-timers to book accommodation in a neighborhood located along the JR Yamanote Line.

This is because the Yamanote Line is a major train line loops around central Tokyo and passes by many of the city’s famous tourist attractions, including Shibuya, Shinjuku, Tokyo Station, Shimbashi, Ikebukuro, Ueno, Harajuku, Yoyogi, Akihabara, Hamamatsucho, and Ebisu. 

Staying close to the major stops on the Yamanote Line allows you to have the easiest access to iconic attractions and activities by public transportation.

The best areas to stay in Tokyo for first-time tourists are Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ginza, Asakusa, Ueno, and Roppongi. Tokyo’s public transportation system is excellent, making it easy to explore the city regardless of where you choose to stay.
