What would be a great itinerary for a low cost trip to Tokyo? Hoping to stay 8 days and 7 nights. Looking for free/cheap things to do!
Hello! A little tip to make a low cost trip to Tokyo is to "not" use so much of train or bus. Here in Tokyo, as it is mentioned in a lot of website, the transportation fee is very costly! :) Hope it helps.
You can use the highway bus for a low cost trip.
Not too sure about the kind of activities you like to do, but I found the TokyoCheapo guide to be very useful. http://tokyocheapo.com/entertainment/3-nights-tokyo-90-dollars/
I will probably be adapting their guide for my own longer stay.
Tokyo is an expensive place but there are tons of free things to do whilst there! Firstly, check out my blog on how to travel Japan on a budget, as there are some useful tips on food and accommodation http://bit.ly/1LVRdJK
Secondly, some free things to do in Tokyo: people watching in Harajukuespecially on a Sunday where a lot of the locals dress in Cosplay. Asakusa Station has some great free temples and shrines to visit plus its near Tokyo Skyline tower. Ueno Park is a really beautiful place to visit. I have another blog post on a lot of free stuff to do in Tokyo http://bit.ly/1NddNye
