With the Tokyo Olympic coming up in July, now is the time to organize travel plans and book accommodations, especially if you want easy access to sporting events and all the thrilling activities the city has to offer.

Deciding on a location is the first step. The Tokyo Olympic events are situated in two main zones the Heritage Zone to the west, which is the area of the 1964 Olympic, and the new Tokyo Bay Zone to the east. The Heritage Zone has the most options in terms of cafes, sightseeing, shopping, and local culture. The Olympic 2020 Games Ground, where all the track and field events are taking place as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, is in this zone and is near lively Harajuku and trendy Omotesando.
For a home base that’s close to the stadium, stay in Shibuya or Akasaka. Other great neighborhoods to consider are Ginza and Tokyo Station, as these are sandwiched between both the Heritage Zone and the Tokyo Bay Zone. Both are great areas for food, shopping, and sightseeing. If most of the events you are attending are in the Tokyo Bay Zone (gymnastics, aquatics, and volleyball are here), there are a few options, particularly in Odaiba.
There is less to do and see here, but if the games are your main emphasis, this may be your best bet. Transportation in Tokyo is excellent, so you can easily travel into the main part of the city from here. Read on for some of our favorite housings across all these areas.

Muji Hotel Ginza, the Japanese homeware brand’s first domestic hotel, is in a fantastic location in the heart of Ginza. This fairly new hotel it opened in April 2019 is above the flagship store, with a mix of traditionally inspired design and modern practicalities. Rooms are minimalist, while also warm and inviting, with comfortable beds and soft linens. Don’t miss the delicious Japanese-style breakfast and local food in the stylish hotel restaurant, Wa.
Millennials Shibuya is an affordable capsule hotel located a four-minute walk from Shibuya Station. Japan is famous for its compact capsule rooms, which were traditionally used by businessmen and have since been revamped for the modern traveler looking for a low-priced, no-frills place to rest their heads. At this stylish hotel, the rooms are small, but there are communal zones for socializing or getting a bit of work done. Its location in the heart of buzzing Shibuya means you can wander straight into the action.
Dormy Inn is a reliable and clean hotel chain in Japan—think Holiday Inn, but with added Japanese hospitality. This branch in specific is in a supreme location, near Cat Street, Harajuku, and Yoyogi Park. It’s a superb choice for both sightseeing and access to the Olympic Stadium for the field and track events. While the rooms may be small—this is a budget hotel—the Inn makes up for it in the details and extras, like the hotel’s own onsen, a traditional Japanese bath area, and sauna.
