First of all, hello Tripadvisor community! This is my first post here. I was hoping to call on your wisdom for a trip I am planning.
I'm a female in my late 20s planning a trip solo to Japan on the last weekend of the next month, or first weekend of May. I'm looking for a great area in Tokyo to stay. Things I definitely have planned-
*Pack a picnic and go have lunch at a park with cherry blossom trees. From what I've read, late April/early May all of the trees are blooming further north, and am willing to travel to spend a day doing this and seeing other sights up north.
*Experience nightlife in Japan- especially would like to visit any really unique, awesome or themed bars. Also, karaoke!
*Tokyo National Museum
Would love your opinions on:
*What area in Tokyo to stay? I'd love to stay in a capsule-type accommodation, I just need a place to sleep so if you have thoughts on this, please share! The one I found so far that looks appealing is Akihabara Bay hotel, have any women stayed here?
*Travel- better by train, taxi, something else? Does anyone have experience using Uber to secure a cab in Tokyo?
*Where *shouldn't* I go as a solo female traveler? Anything else I should know?
*Where are some great places to meet other travelers? I've been looking in to solo travel meetups online as well, but would love your insight on this
Thanks so much for your consideration, I would love any input or recommendations!
