3 days in Tokyo before cruise from Yokohama, where to stay?

We (2 couples) will arrive by Narita and have 3 days before our cruise. We are older so not too interested in the club scene but still active. Should we stay in Yokohama or elsewhere? Recommendations?

If you will be focusing your visit in Tokyo, staying there makes more sense than Yokohama. Shinjuku has some nice hotels and a good deal of shops and restaurants so it could be ideal. Note that the night scene at Shinjuku can be just about people watching. Even walking through the Kabuki-cho nightlife area, it's still totally safe despite the presence of certain establishments.

Ginza trends a bit older with lots of hotels, shops and restaurants. It's not too happening later into the night.

I'd say stay in Tokyo. There's so much to see and do!

- The Park Hyatt Shinjuku: very central with great views (it's the hotel from Lost in Translation)

- The Grand Hyatt Roppongi: another great location, lots of high end shopping nearby

- Shibuya + Ginza are also very central neighborhoods
