Various websites (e.g., Booking.com, Expedia.co.jp, and Hotels.com) are available to search and reserve hotel rooms. Hotels in Ueno, Okachimachi, Ochanomizu, and Suidobashi areas are convenient to reach University of Tokyo by foot (~15-20 min). We strongly recommend you to reserve a room as soon as possible because hotels in Tokyo are often filled up well in advance.
