Best Area

Can anyone please help? My husband and I are going to Tokyo in May and can't decide between the area of Ginza or Minato? We are in our 30's and without kids so don't mind a walk!

We've found accommodation in Minato on the rive overlooking Rainbow bridge and Ginza near to Tokyo Station

Many thanks

You should evaluate the location not by area but by which train/subway station/line is close to.

The above recommendation is correct. Proximity to a railway station (JR, Tokyo Metro, Toei Subway, or any other form of regular and frequent transportation) matters most.

Rainbow Bridge is fun to go around the loop section on Yurikamome to gain height to cross it, and it's a nice addition to Tokyo's somewhat uninspiring landscape, but it's in an odd location in the port area, to be honest.

Minato Ward covers a wide area (Roppongi, Omotesando, Shinagawa, Shimbashi, and a part of Odaiba).
