Anna Kraskovska

Welcome travel fans! I’ve been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and I will be happy to share this passion with you…

Tokyo is probably the most desired destination for every travel fan. It is futuristic, a bit crazy, full of the most weird and wow attractions you have ever seen. Welcome to the world’s most populous metropolis with its  unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, amazing museums, ancient temples, gorgeous gardens, cozy izakayas and fantastic food. There is no other place in the world that can be compared to this incredible city.

Expert tips in Tokyo

Anna Kraskovska

Use public transport

I don’t recommend using taxis despite the fact the taxis in Tokyo are really nice and convenient but also some of the most expensive in the world, even Uber is just as expensive or even more expensive than city taxis.

Anna Kraskovska

Obey rules

Don’t smoke or eat while walking Tokyo streets. You will get fine for that. Smoking is allowed only in smoking zones.

Anna Kraskovska

Be ready to carry your garbage

Trash cans are very rare objects in Tokyo, better have a plastic bag with you to carry your garbage until you find a can. You can find a few of them in some public restrooms, some train stations and definitely in front of convenience/department stores.

Anna Kraskovska

Wake up early

Try to wake up earlier to visit must-see places in Tokyo before the crowd. Morning time is much better for that.

Anna Kraskovska

Tokyo Subway Tickets

If you plan to stay in Tokyo 1-2-3 days, a Tokyo Subway ticket is highly recommended (24h/48h/72h). It can be bought at airports, at Tokyo Metro Tourist Information counter (from 9 am to 5 pm) and other places you can check here

Dangerous & recommended city areas

0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100

Shinjuku Kabukicho is not only the largest red-light district in Japan, but also the biggest in the world. Also the Golden Gai area can be a bit dangerous at night due to many local bars and their drunk customers.

The Shibuya Station area and streets could also be a bit dangerous during Helloween. Following last year’s festivities a group of young people were arrested for toppling a small truck, and there were also reports of pickpocketing and groping.

0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100

Ikebukuro is considered Tokyo’s second-biggest red-light district (after Kabukicho in Shinjuku.) But even then, it is generally quite safe.

Roppongi is safe during the day, but if you decide to visit it at night, you need to be careful. The danger comes from the bars where there are a lot of drunk locals.

A modern Ryokan or Japanese style hotel located in the middle of Asakusa infused with an elegant simplicity and aesthetic. It provided a very pleasant and calming type of accommodation in which to stay. The rooms, primarily to fit one or two people, are exquisite in their design and functionality. Making their size not a limiting factor. There has been a lot of thought put into the overall concept with the result that the meals, other amenities, and interiors are exquisite. It is a standout compared to other such hotels in Tokyo.
