Japan – Links

Right now, this is a bit of dumping ground of great articles, places and suggestions for Japan. Maybe I’ll form this into something of legible value eventually. But for the moment, just my digital memory.

CITIX60 : Tokyo – Tour book for Tokyo. “60 local creatives bring you the best of the city”
(This is where the ‘Kangaroo Hotel’ came from)

Rag Tag – An epic used designer clothing store chain in Tokyo

www.japan-guide.com – Pretty much the bible to all things Japan

New York Times – A $1,000 Day in Tokyo for $100 – note, this is actually near impossible without really knowing where you are going

Kangaroo Hotel – Accomodation in Tokyo, kind of in the burbs but a nice breather

Kamakura – A cute wee beach town worth a day trip from Tokyo (on a nice day!)

Ryokan – General info

K’s House – Affordable accomodation. Great vibe, big lounge. It’s cool.

Nui – Hostel & Bar lounge in Toyko

Imano Tokyo Hostel – In Shinjuku, Tokyo. IT WAS AWESOME, and Shinjuku is about the best place to set up in you’re in Toko for a whole

Ryokan Murayama – Same here, booked for Takayama! Excited to hang out in a Ryokan

Love Hotels – Kind of fascinated by them, and apparently it’s totally acceptable for travellers to stay in them just for fun, nothing dodgy! Plus they’re amazing! I didn’t get to this time but nest time FOR SURE

Osaka Guesthouse Sakura – This was amazingly cheap and a superb location. It’s probably going to be tiny, but I’m okay with that (at the moment)

Miyajima Guest House Mikuniya – My absolute numer one favorite guest house. it was a dream, they gave me goodluck gifts, and there were two racoons who were best friends who visited everyday. One was white!
