What is Sunnypages?

Sunnypages is a word-of-mouth city guide aimed at foreign residents and visitors to Tokyo.

The number of visitors to Tokyo is on the rise year after year, yet it's still a challenge for many to find useful information and navigate the city. Sunnypages was born to address this need. We organized the city in a wide range of categories where everyone can find what they need listed in English. We cover the traditional, such as Japanese restaurants, temples or gardens, to the hippest nightclubs and bars; the everyday such as grocery stores, pet stores and medical services to the best dining guide of Tokyo.

Our site encourages users to rate, share and review our listings. We believe that the internet’s future lies in user-generated content allowing everyone to pool their knowledge together. The listings are credible because they are backed by real users and their opinions.

Listed businesses have much to gain from the exposure, promotion and the discussion forums they will find in our website. As long as businesses abide by our rules, we will help you connect with the foreign community and visitors to Tokyo.

Please abide by the following rules to participate in Sunnypages:

Do not...

  • Do not pretend to be a regular user and write a favorable review for your own business. Users are likely to spot that the review was written by the business itself and this will hurt your image and credibility. It's a much better strategy to allow your listing to collect the reviews of real customers and their opinions.
