Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games. Kanda is an office district where you can find loads of reasonably priced izakayas popular with professionals who stop to eat and drink before making their way home.
Eat, see, and stay in Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Found this lovey gem while strolling around the area. Beautiful Byzantine building that transports you out of the urban sprawl of Tokyo despite still being surrounded by the same. 300 yen entrance fee is worth it especially if you have never visited a cathedral of this variety before.
I was in the neighborhood so stopped by this little university museum. I had also visited 20 years before when it was just a museum dedicated to displays on criminology, now it had expanded to include early Japanese history. Although there was little available in English, it wasn't hard to figure out the policing tools on display in the criminology...
Small (<20places) Ramen spot with 7 dishes - fast and incredibly tasty. I took the HOT one and it was delicious (pork\Cod roe/egg) - wait outside / they take your order - eat and go out completely satisfied :-) Recommended!
My wife and I went here around 8:30 PM on a Thursday evening and surprisingly encountered a line outside and a 20 minute wait. After sitting down and being served our order which we made on the vending machine the line and wait were understandable. My gosh, the ramen was absolutely delicious. I got mine medium spicy and my wife...
We stayed here on a first visit to Japan and as our first hotel. Whilst the location is in the business district, it is close to the imperial palace gardens and a walking distance to a metro station (also a quieter place to make train seat reservations than Tokyo station). The staff were beyond helpful. We would recommend to ask...
Great hotel in Tokyo. Service was superb with excellent in-room amenities, such as daily pajamas, daily slippers, bathroom stuff and the best part a “travel buddy type of iPhone” to use for free!
The only downside was it’s in a residential neighborhood, so not much night life but very close to metro.
The Sakura Hotel Jimbocho is a lovely hotel in the heart of Tokyo! The surrounding area is full of restaurants, cafes, bookshops, and bars. It is also conveniently close to Jimbocho station so catching trains and making your way round is relatively easy. The best part by far are the staff, who all gave excellent and friendly service!
The room is quite small, not much space to store your luggage, but it is very clean and cosy.
Location is excellent as Akihabara JR/metro is right next to the hotel.
Once you step out of the hotel it is within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Starbucks is right next to the hotel if you want to start your...
"Small room, convenient location, roof top hot spring and free late night ramen"

The hotel is located minutes from the Akihabara JR station and the Tokyo metro Ginza line. These 2 stations practically enables you to link to the main attractions of Tokyo easily.
The room is small but its expected for majority of hotels in Tokyo.
Breakfast is a choice of either Western or Japanese, which you have to choose the night...
