Travelling to Japan can be a costly endeavour. Expensive plane tickets and overpriced Western hotel rooms can easily leave one wondering: where did all the cash go? Don’t despair just yet. Even if it is time to tighten the purse strings, you can enjoy a variety of fantastic traditional and modern Japanese foods on a budget. Read on for the top five ways to eat cheap in Japan!
Tokyo is an exciting and beautiful city. It is a place of extreme contrast, with elegant temples, gardens and palaces, niche fashionable districts such as Harajuku and Shinjuku, and the towering modern skyscrapers of the Shiodome and Electric City.

Therefore, it follows that, in addition to the hotels and youth hostels you might find in any city, Tokyo is home to a variety of more creative accommodation options. Spending the night in a quirky, quintessentially Japanese setting is a great way to enrich your trip to Tokyo. The following options are not only ideal for adventurous travellers, but they’re also typically cheaper than standard hotel rooms.
