    I prefer to stay in "weekly mansion" places. They are much cheaper than large hotels and most have something resembling a cooking area if you want to save some money by eating some meals at the hotel. When I used to travel for work, I always stayed at Weekly Mansion Akasaka. It's in a fairly lively Koreantown area, 5 min walk to Akasaka station and they have english versions of all the hotel paperwork in case you can't read and write in Japanese. There's a Poplar convenience store just around the corner and even a wine bar within a close walk. Most Weekly Mansions will not require you to stay an entire week, but you should ask just to be sure.

    I haven't been to Yokohama, but when I visited Tokyo, I stayed at (quoting from wikitravel) "Kinuya Hotel, 2-14-28 Ueno, Taito-ku (3 minutes walk from JR Ueno Shinobazu exit). A great hotel for backpackers, staff can speak English. Two PCs with internet access are available at the lobby. Singles for 7400."

    It's a decent hotel, good service, reasonable price, and it's right across the street from a major JR rail station.

    Go to AAA and get an "International Driving Permit." You need that to drive in Japan, even if it is just at Toyota's Mega Web in Odaiba. They occasionally have vintage Toyotas at Mega Web that you can drive (if they are automatic.)
