The sheer size of Tokyo can make it a pretty daunting place to visit, and unless you’re taking a particularly long trip. it’s not likely you will be able to see the entire city in one go. When choosing where to stay, pick an area you think you’ll enjoy spending a bit of time in; Tokyo’s insanely efficient public transport system will always get you where you want to go. Most first time visitors head to Shinjuku, which is the main commercial area and essentially a city within itself: Take care, as Kabukicho, Tokyo’s red light district, is located at the heart of Shinjuku. Ginza is a more upmarket area with department stores, luxurious boutiques and high end restaurants and cafes. To the north of the City, Asakusa is where many of the top museums, shrines and other historic sights can be found. Odaiba, in the south is the home of theme parks and other over the top attractions.
