Making Reservations

The best way to book major chain hotels is through the company's website. The websites for smaller business hotels and ryokan usually lack English content online. Travel sites, such as Rakuten (,Jalan (, or JAPANiCAN ( can assist booking these hotels. Making your Tokyo hotel reservation before you arrive is highly recommended. If you have not done so, head to a tourist office at the airport or major rail station for assistance.
