any comments abt my itinerary?
I think you are looking for a shinjuku hotel, think based on ur budget, u can try nishi shinjuku (http://www.nshotel.com/english/e-stay_page.htm
) or toyoko inn (http://www.toyoko-inn.com/eng/
Toyoko inn is located in kabuki-cho though, not sure if you are comfy with it.
Which cities are u visiting and how many days r u goin to be there? i bought the 7 day JR rail pass coz i am travelling from tokyo to osaka. if u are only staying in the Kanto area (i.e. tokyo, yokohama, nikko etc) then there is no need for a jr pass which will cost 28,300 yen. Pl remember that JR pass can only be purchased OUTSIDE of spore.
hope the above helps. if u have further qn, i can try to help u ;p
