What you should know about Tamachi

The area around Tamachi Station is an intriguing mix of waterways and skyscrapers, temples and monorails, bridges and piers, all overlooking Tokyo Bay. It's something of a transport hub, known as the gateway to the pleasure island of Odaiba. The famed Rainbow Bridge connects there from Tamachi's shores. You also can launch yourself on an up-river cruise from its docks, or head quickly into central Tokyo from Tamachi station. But its tree-lined streets and waterfronts also have a breezy attraction of their own.

Hotels in Tamachi

There are several impressive hotels in Tamachi, thanks in part to its good links by water, rail, and road across Tokyo. Most are within walking distance of the station and are affordable. The Hotel Jal City Tamachi Tokyo offers some of the best hotel rates in Tamachi. Its good-sized rooms, extremely helpful staff, and great location have all been noted. Closer to the station is the Hotel Villa Fontaine Tamachi, a rather stylish establishment praised for its modern decor, good service and excellent breakfasts. The Hotel Gracery Tamachi is another grand-looking contemporary hotel located in a quiet area close to the waterfront and praised highly by business travelers in Tamachi hotel reviews.

Things to see in Tamachi

Primarily a business and educational district, the attractions of Tamachi tend to be on the low-key side. One of its most attractive features is its location on the sea-front, the district being crisscrossed by waterways and bridges. Its most famous bridge is the Rainbow Bridge, which serves as one of the main road and rail links to Odaiba. This is beautifully lit up in a myriad of colors in the evening. A great place to catch its night-time spectacle is not far from Tamachi, atop the 21-story observation deck of the North Tower of the Takeshiba New Pier. There is also some fascinating local color closer in. Just north of the station is the Satsuma Remains of Old Samurai Residences, where you can discover more about the day-to-day life of Japan's warrior class, some of whose homes were uncovered here. Nearby, the Minato City Local History Museum proves more illumination on this one-time port's past.

Good for business travelers

This area is known as a solid base for the business traveler, with the affordable accommodation in Tamachi and excellent transport links being its strong selling points. Most of its business-class hotels are close to the Tamachi station, which is also on the right side of Tokyo for Haneda Airport, the main hub for domestic flights. The area has a mix of commercial and educational facilities (two universities and a business school are close by), while Tokyo's business heartlands of Otemachi and Marunouchi lie only a few minutes away by train.

How to get to Tamachi

Most international flights to Tokyo arrive at Narita Airport. To travel to Tamachi from there you'll want to take the Narita Limousine Bus to Tokyo Station before changing onto the Yamanote Line for Tamachi. But Tamachi also makes for a good transit point for those planning to fly to other places in Japan. That's because Haneda Airport lies less than 10 miles away, and can be reached in under 20 minutes using the Tokyo mono-rail. The mono-rail is also good for local sightseeing, although you'll find most of this district is easily walked.
