Karaksa Tokyo Grand Opening

I’d booked this hotel for our last night in Japan via booking.com, it just appeared as an option online, it was close to the station and available for a great rate.

We show up and find out it’s actually it’s grand opening day. We were one of the first guests to check in, everything is absolutely brand new.

The rooms are a fantastic size and it’s one of the few hotels I’ve stayed at in Japan that has a proper shower, not one of those stand in the bath jobbies that are all the go here.

The only downside is it doesn’t have an Onsen. Two weeks ago my care factor on that was completely zero, but having tried them, I’ll always be seeking out hotels with great Onsen for the next trip to Japan

The hotel even has a free coffee machine

After checking in, decided to head back to Kappabashi for another look around. If you are heading there the closest metro station would be Tawaramachi on the Ginza line.

I do love the Ginza subway line, everything is gold coloured. Insert Austin Powers Gold Member movie quote here….

Back to Kappabashi for some more stuff.

We just grabbed a sandwich from 7-11 for lunch. I couldn’t not try blueberry and cream cheese just once. Nicer than it sounds ! (No Matcha or Benito flakes so I’m happy!)
