Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games. Kanda is an office district where you can find loads of reasonably priced izakayas popular with professionals who stop to eat and drink before making their way home.

"First time to go into Todai campus. "

I never been to Tokyo university even working near there, finally I entered the labyrinth.
This shrine was originally founded in the fifth century, A.D. before Buddhism came to Japan. Now the shrine has incorporated the spirit of Sugawara no Michizane, who was a scholar in the 9th century in Kyoto. You can look him up on Wikipedia.
If you would like to learn more, may I suggest the all-purpose travel narrative "The Narrow Roads;...
5 minutes walk from Akihabara.
You can see typical Shinto Shrine here.
If you are interested in that, this place can be a good convenient choice for your brief visit during your busy trip agenda.
It's worth squeezing time for a visit.
The appearance and ambience is so typical for a Shinto Shrine.
A heart of Tokyo and Edo.
Here you will find the Shrine of Confucius, the Shrine of Shinno and the site of Shoheizaka College. It is a beautiful shrine area in the beautiful community of Yushima. There were wonderful sculptures on the day I visited.
Asobono is great. I went with my 3.5 year old and he had the best time. He is all into trains these days so we spent half of our time in the train room building tracks , changing them and redoing them. The ball pool is awesome. They also have labels and staff that speaks English - I have not...
Loved it, such a great experience! Highly recommend visiting this maid cafe! So many menu options and choices for the kind of experience you want. I got a souvenir photo and a unicorn sundae. So yummy and such lovely people!
"Quite probably Firehouse does the best gourmet burgers in Tokyo."
reviewed 3 November 2017 by Roberts69
This has to be the best authentic gourmet burger joint in Tokyo. 'Firehouse' has been going for around 20 years and it has a certain casual character about it. It's not a big place but turn around is quick and there are also seats outside. I was alone so sat at the bar / counter which was great as I...
The space is very cozy and typical. The dinner is a set menu. The food is fine, tasty and with quality. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and spoke reasonable English. We paid around 50€ for 2 people.
This hotel is located about 5 minutes from the Suidobashi station of the Mito Line, and a bit further away from the JR Suidobashi Station. Tokyo Dome is just across the street.
The hotel is actually the 4th through 9th floors of a building that has a "Don Quixote" discount store on the first two floors and a "Saizeria Family...
"convenient location to Tokyo university, a very decent non-chain business hotel"
reviewed 9 September 2017 by olga y
For a business trip to Tokyo university, it's a most convenient location in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood off a busy street. The atmosphere is almost solemn (due to the academic clientele?), the Japanese and Continental options for breakfast were good (home made jams were a nice surprise). The place is very clean, but don't expect breathtaking views from the windows....
It is a nice and quiet hotel...But the room was very, very small..But as we used the room only to leave our luggage and seek the city that did not trouble us a lot. Hotel has a very polite staff, breakfast was good.
Last year my staying in this hotel was so good that I decided to come back this year too! Staff is friendly, room are clean with enough space and well equippeed.
Complimentary breakfast is a nice touch.
Sento on 6th floor makes the difference with other hotels in Tokyo.
I have been staying in this hotel for years. It is a great value. The staff are friendly and welcoming and they really know what service means: When I arrive too early to check in they take my luggage and give me a chit. When I return and check in and give them the chit, they tell me my luggage...
