How To Stay In A Decent Cheap Hotel In Tokyo

From wish list to experience - includes my recommended Tokyo hotel


Isn't Japan Prohibitively expensive? Is there such a thing as a decent cheap hotel in Tokyo?

One of the most common, recurring myths about Japan is that it is prohibitively expensive.

Whilst it’s true that travelling in Japan isn’t likely to be the cheapest trip you’ll ever embark upon, it’s also true that it doesn’t have to be expensive.

Take accommodation as an example.

What do you think it would cost for two adults to stay in a good hotel in Japan for one night? How hard is it to find a decent cheap hotel in Toyko?

The answers may pleasantly surprise you.

“I can’t believe the good value of this hotel! On my first visit to Tokyo, I paid about the same per night for a very small (although very clean) room which didn't even have a wardrobe.

I had to keep my clothes in the suitcase on the floor. A washing machine would have been a huge advantage.

Many thanks to The Real Japan for the tip-off!”
