Tokyo Hotels Etc.

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have a 2 week trip to Japan planned for the end of August. I was there in 2007. He has never been there. Before I go into the schedule questions, I need help finding a hotel in Tokyo. I am truly at a loss. I stayed in both Minato and Shinjuku. I preferred Minato. We will be there 4 or 5 nights maximum. I have recommendations for the Shinagawa Prince Hotel and the Imperial Hotel.

Our budget is under $200/night for Tokyo. I can't remember if Minato was centrally located. But I remember the area being very nice. We are flexible world travelers meaning we have stayed in different kinds of places. We are not attracted to the tourist crowds and like hitting one site and then hanging out the rest of the day. We love food, restaurants, museums, cafes and meeting people. Not big into shopping. Finally we are an older couple. Japan is on my husband's bucket list.

In terms of schedule, we want to go to Kyoto (of course), Miyajima, and Kanazawa. I am thinking 4 nights in Tokyo, 4 nights in Kyoto, 2 nights Miyajima and 1 or 2 nights in Kanazawa. We will have a couple of extra nights after that. I have recommendations for the Granvia in Kyoto and Nara Hotel in Nara. We will stay in a royokan in Miyajima.

Please share your ideas. I feel overwhelmed figuring this out. I am looking at hotels on TripAdvisor and Bookings.com.

Many thanks.

Lisa
