Summer is festival season in Tokyo. It's not an exaggeration to say that you can find a festival in many Tokyo neighborhoods every weekend in July and August.
You can experience traditional Japanese style festivals such as carrying a portable shrine and fireworks as well as international festivals like the Asakusa Samba Festival and Aloha Yokohama.
One way to get the most out of a Tokyo trip is to stay at a hotel near a train or subway station. You'll spend more time seeing the sights and less time in traffic jams.
Premium rooms at luxury hotels are even very reasonable for tourists. In recent weeks, we've seen summer offers at 4- and 5-star luxury hotels up to 45% off. Prices start around $285 (25,000 JPY) per night. This deal at the Prince Park Tower Tokyo is an excellent example.
