If you wish to walk from your hotel to the Nippon-budokan, consider booking at Hotel Grand Palace. If you prefer a different style of hotel, you can walk a bit longer or ride a subway from Hotel Niwa Tokyo (Suidobashi station), Ochanomizu Hotel Shoryukan (Jimbocho station) or Tokyo Dome Hotel (Suidobashi station).

To also admire real Japanese swords, go shopping for equipment or learn about the Japanese culture, history, samurai, ninja… we recommend you to reserve a 1-day personalized tour in Tokyo or Kamakura during your trip in Japan!
