Question

Hi I posted a question here before and got so many helpful advices - thank you. This time I'll be a little more specific - I arrive...

...from Bangkok where I work Saturday the 21st - Anybody who can recommend a good place to stay - private "home stay" could be great. I'll like to meet some locals and foreigners who live in Tokyo and the rest of Japan - after 3½ in Bangkok I know a lot of people in Asia but none in Japan that I can visit, but that doesn't stop me from choosing it as my holiday destination. If anybody is going out Saturday or doing something fun Sunday in Tokyo where I can join, please let me know - I'm a nice person so don't worry. From living in Bangkok I know big cities is more fun when you meet up with people who live there, its not only Tokyo that I'm interested in but also Osaka, Hiroshima, places around Hokaido and any toher places that you recommend me to visit – Thanks Jacob Jacobbojsen@gmail.com

See for a home stay. Localyte and couchsurfing should link up; very complimentary services. If you come to Osaka, please give me a shout.

A great place to stay is "Sakura House" (google; Sakura House Tokyo - it will come up first) They have over 100 places in Tokyo from Hostels to cheap hotels. The Tokyo Marathon will be on Sunday 22nd so central Tokyo will be busy with over 35,000 runners and many traffic restrictions and a busy subway for the thousands of supporters that come to watch. You will probably meet lots of other travellers & long term stayers at Sakura house who are usually happy to show people around or head down to Roppongi, Shibuya or Shinjuku. Alternatively come and support me running the Martahon!
Hi, you should see Kyoto, the old capital, easy to reacj with shinkansen bullet train from Tokio. Also, you shd visit a japanese onsen, hot spring bath, there are also some in tokio, but the ones in the province are nicer. I am in the very south, kagoshima province, about 2 hours flight from Tokio, a bit far,but very beautiful
If you make it all the way down to Fukuoka, I can show you around. You could even stay at one of my places. Just let me know soon.
hi there :)
i also recommend couchsurfing - as an above poster mentioned... my friend has done it all through Europe and said it was a wonderful way to get to see real homes and people!

Enjoy your stay!
I would reccomend Sakura house, very much the only place I know that works like a guest house in Japan. Couchsurfing, never tried but I hear its good.

This weekend I'm working so I'm actually not going out so sorry, can't show you around. Though if you love cities you'd love Roppongi, plush like the Central Bangkok area. Not as many cheap places in Japan but very nicely decored restaurnats and cool streets to walk by in the likes of Shibuya, Harajuku and Shinjuku. Hope you like Tokyo.
