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...

This property is in principle an university club of 7 previous Imperial Universities. They accommodate a hotel, three restaurants ( Japanese, Chinese and French), bar and meeting rooms. I was invited by my friend who graduated from one of the seven Universities and dined at its French restaurant. Latin, They served only set menu in for dinner but I was...
Great little ramen place near AKB. The staff are super friendly. They met us outside and took our order while we waited for table. Food was very good. Recommended. We were there with 3yo and 8mo - very accommodating.
Staff, facilities, location, service. This is truly a wonderful and very private hotel. And for tourists ... before you travel off to other areas of the city, take an afternoon to wander around this very upscale neighborhood to see the many things it has to offer.
Stayed 3 nights as a tourist later 50’s couple. Really enjoyed and would stay again. Best hotel we had in two weeks in Japan. Fairly new. Nice room. Nice breakfast area with great food. Green outlook. In a quiet area (and we liked that) so you need to get the subway for 5-10 mins to where you are going, but...
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...
this was my first time in Tokyo and I really love this quiet hotel with a Japanese spa on the rooftop, adjacent to a train platform and very convenient location to travel true this marvellous, civilized & safe City
