Narita Airport, the main airport in Tokyo, is 40 miles from the city center but the travel time can feel like you’re in Los Angeles and sometimes take easily 2 hours. Most people take a bus to and from the city. Haneda is much closer and you can actually take a taxi there for about 100 USD.
A good fancy place to stay is Cerulean Towers in Shibuya. A cheaper Shibuya option is Hotel Excel. The last time we came we stayed at Hotel Unizo and it was pretty decent for a really good price and really good restaurants all over the place.
This is the best Kobe Beef spot in the world. Its ridiculous. Plan on spending $350 each though. Honestly the best steak you have ever tasted.
Upscale but minimalist japanese food. Great chef, quiet ambiance and a classic Japanese experience. Small dishes but epic flavor. It is in nakameguro which is great for bars and food.1-21-25 higashiyama nakameguro
