Built upon Tokyo Bay landfill, Koto District offers breathtaking waterfront views with a big perk: breathing room. Since the reclaimed land was formerly uninhabited, parks take up great expanses, streets stretch wider, and buildings stand farther apart (for Tokyo). Although Koto District is mainly residential, several corporations also call the area home. When the weekend arrives, so does the silence. Thanks to Tokyo Big Sight, the city’s renowned exhibition center, not all activity abates after office hours.See 17 places to stay Save this neighborhood
