East Asia is enjoying an increased amount of visitors, especially from the West, and hotels in Tokyo area can be very crowded. The IWGT is also being held during a popular season for sightseeing, so early booking is recommended.

Any station in Central Tokyo area can connect to these 3 stations by Metro in less than 20 min. Please search in areas “Shinjuku”, “Shibuya”, “Akasaka”, “Roppongi”, “Ueno”, “Akihabara”, or “Asakusa”. There’s lots of things to do and see in these areas and they are very popular with international tourists. (Check your Tokyo guidebook). However, you must be ready for the rush-hour Tokyo Metro in the morning!
