walk TOKYO!

Recommendations for hotels

Karte Tokio

If you start the tour with the first stage on a Tuesday (check-in on Monday and start the first stage from Tokyo Central Station on Tuesday morning), you can get the most out of your stay. The recommendation is to first choose a hotel within the yellow area ("centre") for three nights and then change hotels every three days. If you want to change hotels only once or twice instead of three times, you will find my recommendation for this in the table below. If the stay in Tokyo starts on a different day of the week, the 12-day tour can also start at any other point of the loop. You can also change the recommended days of the week, but then you have to check yourself whether all the sights along the route that you would like to visit are open on that day.

For those who simply want to do individual tours from "TOKYO MAZE" instead of the circuit of "walk TOKYO!", I have created the table below to find the ideal places to stay in the city area for a certain number of days. Here, too, the opening days of the sights of the respective tours in the areas were taken into account. Of course, you can make individual adjustments depending on your personal interests and may then have to travel a little further by public transport on some days. However, as a starting point for holiday planning and hotel booking for Tokyo, I hope the tips are helpful.
