More About Hotels near Akihabara...

Travel by Train or on Foot

The Akihabara railway station is the best way to travel in and out of the Akihabara neighborhood. Two train lines will take you out of the city in all directions. To travel within Tokyo, Japan's subway, one of the best in the world, is a cheap way to get around. Get a cheap stay near Akihabara Station at Kazusaya Hotel or the Akihabara Washington Hotel

Within Akihabara itself, your best option is to walk. On Sunday they close off the main road to vehicle traffic from 1pm until 5 or 6pm (depending on the season) and let pedestrians wander freely. While walking around, stop in the mega electronics stores, hang out in a game café and play games you haven't seen for fifteen years, or simply look at the cosplayers and their elaborate costumes as they walk up and down the streets. To stay for cheap within a very short walk of the heart of Akihabara, stay at the Dormy Inn Akihabara.

Hostels are Clean and Cheap Year-Round

Get an unbeatable price no matter what time of the year at the nearby hostel K's House Tokyo. Visiting Japan's Electric Town is always a party, with the crowds, the lights, and the distinctive atmosphere that almost seems like it belongs inside a game or an anime movie. But if you want to kick the party up a notch, visit during Akihabara's out-of-season Oktoberfest. It happens at the end of March and the beginning of April, which is during one of Japan's peak seasons, so hotels may be more expensive.
