    Sadly, with the current global economic meltdown, a trip to Tokyo just got a whole lot more expensive if you're looking at exchanging U.S. dollars for yen. There are, however, ways to scrimp and save, including staying at smaller ryokans (a Japanese inn), in one of those zany capsule hotels, or even in a by-the-hour "love" hotels that are unique to Japan (even if you're not a couple or aren't feeling amorous, this is a quirky option if you're out late and only need to catch some Z's for a few hours). Another idea, if you're really on a tight leash, is to find a 24-hour onsen center, which often have reclining chairs where you can kip for the price of entry to the onsen.
