Tokyo Accommodation

There is really no downtown of Tokyo. My definitioin of downtown of Tokyo would be the inside of Yamanote line. Live close to Yamanote line stations is pretty convenient.

People frequently ask me for accommodation recommendation, following are decent places I’ve stayed or hear good things.

For Airbnb I only recommend this listing because I’ve met this person.
