Tokyo offers the widest range of lodging choices of any Japanese city, including many international and domestic hotel chains, hostels, dormitories, capsule hotels and ryokan. Below we briefly introduce Tokyo's main districts, their advantages as a base for tourists and some recommended hotels:

Shinjuku (more details)

Shinjuku is a very popular district among tourists to stay thanks to its convenient location and abundance of shopping, entertainment and sightseeing opportunities.
