We are going to Tokyo as a stopover to our month long trip in Asia. We are only there for 1.5-2 days arriving in the afternoon from Hawaii on day 1 leaving early morning of day 3 to Osaka/Kyoto. We are not big cities people when we travel (we live in one, that is enough). I dont know that my hubby will enjoy this type of crowd AT all..I am trying to make this stay as comofrtable as possible for him. Walking might be preferred given the crowds in the subway but depends on the weather.
We are big into food, will want to see the temples, possibly the garden if It is doable with decent winter gear, and anything interesting as far as shopping goes for us would be related to cooking and paper and traditional japanese (arts, clothes etc..) What is the right neighborhood for us ?? Is Ueno a good fit? Budget: $200/night max. ( )
Tech/crowded mall/crazy shopping/ big partying in night club: not so :)
