Tokyo neighborhood/hotel suggestion & train pass question

Jump to last reply

I will be in Japan for a week in September. Flying in/out of Osaka. I will do 2 nights in Tokyo with the rest of the time spent in the Kyoto area. I am interested in finding an area to stay that will give me a good taste of Tokyo in that short time frame.

I am a single female who likes to walk and soak in the scene. I am not looking for "nightlife" beyond a good meal and wandering the streets. I am not looking for luxury accommodations but not interested in a hostel either. What area would give me a good Tokyo experience and be convenient for getting around? I appreciate any and all neighborhood and specific hotel suggestions. I am currently reading all of the previous threads on this topic.

Additionally, does it make sense for me to purchase the Japan rail pass if I am planning on the trip to Tokyo from Osaka or Kyoto as well as travelling to Nara and Hiroshima from Kyoto?

Thanks for any advice/insight you can provide. I will continue my research...
