Confused about where to stay in Tokyo

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to book accommodation for our trip to Japan in January.

Tokyo is, of course proving to be an issue. We're 2 adults, a 3 year old and a 7 year old. So, to avoid the problem of having to sit in the dark in silence at 7pm when the 3 year old goes to bed, we've been looking at interconnecting rooms.

For some reason, I have in my notes that we should stay in Shinjuku. But accommodation, especially interconnecting rooms is eye-wateringly expensive.

I've visited Tokyo before, but either as business trips or in my studenty single days, so my feeling for different areas may not be right for a family.

I've come across serviced apartments in both Akihabara and Asaksa/Roppongi - but my memories of those areas is too loud/sleazy/busy for a family trip. My other instinct is to look to stay near Ueno, but I think that's because I know there is a big park there (I don't like Tokyo, I find it far too intense and busy, and I remember getting a bit of relief at Ueno park - I'd happily skip Tokyo, but my husband has never been, so we're compromising on 3 nights)

Any suggestions?
