Welcome To Tokyo
Welcome to the InterContinental TokoyBay. We are honoured to have you with us. It is a great pleasure to help you make the most of time you have. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Occupying a prime vantage point in the heart of Tokyo's dynamic bay area, the InterContinental Tokyo Bay combines urban convenience with expansive panoramas of one of the world's greatest cities in the world.
If you are feeling adventurous and want a unique Japanese experience you should go to Tsukiji Shijo, one of the biggest and most famous fish market in all of Japan. The main attraction is watching the Maguro (tuna) auction, where huge tuna are unloaded from the docks and laid out for bidding. But be warned, the auction begins around 5 am. If you don't fancy an early start, go straight to Uogashi-Yokocho, a nearby street lined with lots of small fish restaurants for the freshest breakfast sushi imaginable. Yamato Sushi is one I'd recommend in particular. After breakfast, visit the feudal Hamarikyu Gardens, surrounded by a moat of sea water from Tokyo Bay. Try a cup of macha (traditional Green tea) at the tea house located in the middle of a tidal pond.
From Hamarikyu Garden you can take a Sumida River boat ride to Hinode pier and then Asakusa, an excellent place to get a feel of what traditional Japan was like. If you are fortunate enough to be visiting in the Spring you will be treated to a stunning view of cherry blossom along the way. Once there, I suggest you take a tour with a Jinrikisha, a small, two-wheeled rickshaw pulled by one person. The main draw in Asakura is the five-storied Pagoda and the Asakusa Kannon Temple (also known as the Sensoji temple), the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo. You can buy traditional goods, such as a Kimono, at the Nakamise shopping arcade located in the temple. For lunch, try Gyunabe(Sukiyaki) at Yonekyu.
Head to the Ginza, Tokyo's upmarket entertainment district. If you love to shop, there are many stores here. From one extreme to another is Kabuki, one of the most unique experiences in world theatre. Accompanied by traditional Japanese instruments the actors use an old-fashioned language which is difficult to understand, even for us. Unfortunately, famous Kabuzika Theatre is temporaliy closed. However, you can still enjoy the atomospher at Shimbashi Embujo. For dinner, teppanyaki restaurant - Tsukiji Sato is good taste. Or, you can try Monjayaki(Japanese pan -fried batter with various ingredients) at Tsukishima Monja Street with Japanese Sake.
You will have to pay a cover charge at most bars.
RESPECT FOR ELDERLY PEOPLE
The Japanese revere elderly people and use polite words when addressing them. Please be mindful of this.
There is no tipping custom in Japan. But in the hotel, a 10%-15% service charge is added. If you like to show your gratitude to someone, please give them a small gift from your country.
From the middle of June to the middle of July is Japan's rainy season. Please bring a rain coat with you for protection.
DID YOU KNOW ?
There are many firework festivals in Japan during the Summer. Please ask the concierge for when and where they will take place.
In Japan, w have women-only train car for rush hours like 7am-10am and 5pm-8pm. So please watch your step and the window of trains when you take.
Depending on the ward (district of Tokyo), there are many public non-smoking areas that you need to be aware of, especially around stations. If you smoke in these areas you will be fined.
Our Emperor is called 'Tenno' in Japanese. The first Tenno was Jinmu Tenno, and the 125th Emperor, Akihito Tenno, has recently ascended to the throne.
WHAT TO PACK
Please bring out an insurance card with you. In the event of emergency treatment it will save you both time and money.
Bringing a dictionary is a good idea, as it's handy for when you go out to explore. You will find that not all Japanese speak English.
It is recommended to bring some Japanese Yen, just to cover the cost of transportation from the airport to Tokyo Bay. It will save you the hassle of having to wait to exchange money at the airport.
