Tokyo in Japan as well as being one of the world’s biggest cities is also one of its safest so anyone wishing to visit the city and stay in one of its budget end or cheaper hotels should still be safe wherever they choose to stay.

All across Japan and not just in Tokyo safety for tourists is not a major problem and it is safe even for female tourists travelling alone during the daylight hours or late into the night. Street crime in Tokyo is a rare occurrence and only in very few cases are tourists involved. Common sense should still be applied when visiting the city as opportunistic pickpockets do exist there although they choose not to target westerners as victims of crime as people coming from these areas have a reputation for being aggressive toward crime. Sexual harassment can be a problem, particularly on crowded trains with little or no personal space with everyone packed so tightly together.

Koban or small localised police stations are located every few blocks in Tokyo and should you become lost or need any form of assistance the police are there to help. Not all of Tokyo’s police however speak English so a little Japanese may be required to get your message across.

The city of Tokyo covers a vast area and cheap hotels can be found across the city. The following website makes the claim that booking a hotel through them you can make a saving of up to 70% off the advertised price for the same room.

As well as rooms available the above website also offers information on what attractions and entertainment is available within the major tourist areas of the city.

Within the areas of Roppongi and Akasaka there is a selection of cheap and safe hotels to choose from and these districts are ideal for shopping, dining and night time entertainment. Within Roppongi district some of the night clubs have a reputation for being somewhat seedy despite having an upscale appearance. Visitors to these clubs should check on cover charges and drink prices before purchasing drinks, some locations charge extortionate prices.

The atmosphere of older Japan is evident in Ueno and Asakusa districts; these are among the most popular destinations for tourists to visit in the city. It is abundant with museums, shopping streets, department stores and Ueno Park, one of the city’s favourable outdoor areas.

Ginza area is home to many luxurious shops, hotels to suit all budgets, the theatre and clubs. Shinagawa is famous for its shopping district and entertainment. The city’s railway hub of JR Shinagawa station is the point where many Japanese enter the city and hotels are conveniently located in this area. Ikebukuro is another of the city’s railway stations and this district is home to shopping, theatres and entertainment. It is also one of the city’s busiest districts.

Another busy and popular area is Shibuya, its entertainment district is a favoured spot particularly for younger visitors.

Tokyo is one of the most expensive cities in the world in which to live but with some careful planning on choosing a cheap hotel it is not a city where your safety needs to be compromised in order to find somewhere cheap to stay.
