So just what will Tokyo prices get you for your money while you're staying in the city? Tokyo is often referred to as being one of the most expensive cities in the world. While it's definitely not the cheapest, when we compare it to a city like London, Tokyo definitely gives us better value for our money... at least in our opinion.
Prices in Japan are generally fixed so it's not a case of bartering your way to the right price like you would in South East Asia. Here it's just a case of knowing where to go. There are expensive shops and regular shops.
In the list below, we'll give you an idea about the Tokyo prices of some regular items and expenses that you may need or want during your stay.
Before you jump in though, please be aware that these prices are not written in stone. This is a guide only - see our disclaimer - and should be used as such.
If you really need the definitive price for an item, please check with an authorized vendor.
We've provided a convertor for you at the bottom of this page courtesy of xe.com so you can easily check the price against your local currency.
