However, I have a suggestion for you guys.
Instead of booking a hotel near Shiroten, I'd like you guys to set-up accounts for vacation rental sites such as AirBnB to save more money with four to five-star hotel-like stay. Then, book yourselves an apartment or house for yourselves or with friends.
While I haven't yet seen the location in person, this suggestion seems to have a lot of merit.
Me and my friend are traveling to Tokyo, and will take the bullet train to Osaka for the weekend to see the concert. While we're in Tokyo, we'll be staying at an apartment that is about 150 meters from Yoyogi park, and the total cost is about $100 USD per night. Here's a link to the place we're staying; scroll down to the map to see how ridiculously interesting the location is. Walking distance from Yoyogi Park, Meiji Shrine, the Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, and a bunch of museums and universities and such.
