5 Reviews of the Tokyo 6

Wow, that was the initial impression other campers expressed when they saw this majestic tent in situ. After much window and internet shopping we plumped fir this Royal Tokyo 600 coming complete with footprint and carpet deal. This tent is more than a tent it is camping. Huge inside with not only the bedrooms but also living space and entrances. Perhaps the vast windows helped. The head height is enormous feeling airy and not claustrophobic at all. It is easy and I mean easy to erect. Very simply and not time consuming.No domestics during its construction. Sturdy and well made. The fabric and all features feel well put together and of quality manufacture. Perhaps that was another factor in selecting this tent. Feels very secure and able to withstand winds and that all important rain, shower deluge test. Extremely happy with this tent I cant say enough about it. We highly recommend it even though there are only two of us. It could easily accommodate 6 without feeling like a railway station.

I bought this tent last year at a knock down price of 299 and I must say it was worth every penny. Bought a Royal universal Side Extension as I read that it is in fact compatible with this tent and fits a treat. Carpet was hard to get hold of but found one in the end and bought a footprint too. Sturdy and well made. Sleeping compartments are of a dark material so no worries about being woke early or children not able to sleep on light nights. Attention to detail is amazing! We took the tent to Somerset last year and had torrential rain and really strong winds and not one drop of water came in. Great ventilation system, zipped hook up entry, two side doors as well as the panoramic front door that is great as it lets in masses of light.

What I mostly like about this tent is the colour as it stands out from the blue's and green's that are typically associated with camping. I would most definitely recommend this tent. Some good deals out there at the moment-Tent, Carpet and Footprint for less than 300.

Just back from a 2 week holiday in our Royal and we think this is a really great family tent.

I agree that it's very easy to put up for 2 people. I did need help with undoing the frame poles when it came to packing away, but my husband didn't have a problem.

This is a tall tent which creates a lovely feeling of space and you can stand up fully in the bedrooms. Be aware that the top bedroom clips are high up - I used a crate to reach them and I'm not short.

For a family not used to sewn-in groundsheets we find it's a lovely airy tent. Each bedroom has 3 well designed adjustable vents and the main living area has 3 doors that can be opened (half way on sides, fully on main) leaving mesh 'doors' in place. Right at the end of our holiday we realised the main mesh panel can be used like a flyscreen whilst the porch is up on its poles. The side doors also have little porches to cover the entrances if it's raining. It's lovely and breezy if you're somewhere hot, and cosy if not.

We love this tent and all the well thought out features. It feels very stable due to the frame and fibreglass pole mix. It was also a lot cheaper than some other well known brands.

My teens said of it . Good points: cool shape / doesn't flood / good pockets / spacious / tall / doesn't look cold (because of the colours). Bad points: couldn't think of any!

I give it 9/10 only because I find dismantling the main frame poles a bit tricky.

Oh, and keep DEET away from it; sadly our son was found using insect repellent as flyspray and damaged patches of the roof.Hmm.

First family tent purchased after a couple of weeks deliberation as bit of a knee jerk reaction to scorching weather in July 2013.

As a family of 4 (including two teens) with no idea how much camping we might actually end up doing we didn't want to blow the bank and had a budget of about 200 - 250 in mind at least.

Initially we considered Royal Hampton 4 as we liked the standing room (both being 6' tall) panoramic view and living area it provided but we picked up via this site the fact the berth sizes leave little in the way of elbow room and spotted on line by chance that Towsure had new 2012 Tokyo 6s which looked remarkably like Hampton 4 but has increased berths created by increasing width from 3 metres to 4 metres and all for a a knock down price of 240! This seemed a good price as other well known retailers were at the time still wanting 400 (currently down to 350) albeit a 2013 tent but they couldn't tell us what the difference would be from the 2012!). Whats more towsure sent it to us via courier for no extra cost.

Bit apprehensive that there was only one review on this site for the Tokyo 6 but having read the positive reviews of the Hampton 4 which is basically same tent we decided to go for it. Tokyo 6 has two completely separate '3 Berth' sleeping compartments whereas the Hampton 4 had a 4 berth compartment with dividing curtain. We actually liked the separate compartments of the Tokyo 6 as it give flexibility to leave out one compartment should need arise.

Initially supplied with sleeping compartments packed separately external to fly sheet we've successfully experimented and now leave them inside main tent just secured at floor points and neatly folded down so as to not cause a problem when folding main tent.

We were slightly taken aback when tent initially delivered as literature only refers to package size as 31cm x 31cm x 95cm. That didn't include box containing tent Poles! Guess that was lesson one of buying blind over internet without seeing it boxed up in a shop. Still the price was good and we haven't regretted our purchase.

Came supplied with galvanised steel wire tent pegs, one repair section of fibre pole plus repair patch for tent fabric.

Subsequently bought footprint from separate source as towsure were out of stock. Were planning to get fitted carpet but at 70 decided to make do with various picnic blankets accumulated over the years and this has so far been fine. Will watch out for end of season sales!

We also invested in 20metre electric hook up as only a single entry point on one side of tent.

Had an initial put up and take down in back garden taking notes for repacking as recommended and was pleased to have that chance to check out tent without onlookers.

Have taken it away once to Derbyshire for three nights (one with rain) and were not disappointed.

Condensation apparent in morning even with all vents left open overnight though soon dried out when sun hit roof. Have nothing else to compare with but imagine it's par for the course given drop in air temp overnight.

Have already made plans to take it out again which is testament to how family felt our first adventure went.

We were attracted to the the large window areas and enjoyed the panoramic views it gave us. After all you can always drop the curtains if you don't like the view or want privacy but with british weather we wanted to be able to get as much light in as possible.

I expect there are many much better quality tents but given the uncertainty of how much use it will get at the price we paid it seems almost too good to be true. We're delighted with choice.

Will try to update when we've been through a heavy storm as it's bound to happen sooner or later!

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Norfolk camping in our new Royal Tokyo 6 tent. We have tried numerous tents in recent years in our elusive search for the 'perfect' tent for us. We now feel we have found it! The Tokyo 6 is a fantastic tent. It has full standing height throughout, including in the bedroom pods. It is very easy to pitch (don't mean to sound sexist but we are 2 girls with a 3 year old son so need it to be easy to pitch without the muscle of a man!). This one is brilliant. Peg down the 4 corners. Assemble two main steel poles that feed through first, pull them up and then peg out a couple of guys to hold them upright. Then two flexi-poles that feed through at front and back and clip onto side of steel poles. Guy out rest as you wish and job done! We were worried about dropping from a 4000HH in our last tent to 3000HH in this one but it withstood lots of torrential rain in Norfolk very well. No leaks.

The tent has loads of light - panoramic windows across front and very light coloured roof. The bedroom pods are much darker so great at night. Handy storage on outside of pods. Loads of ventilation all around the tent. Mesh insect nets on all doors. We found ours brand new on ebay for 299 and bought footprint for 20 and carpet for 35. We'd never had a carpet before but it was lovely and cosy underfoot. We also bought the Royal universal side extension (the one with the door) for 99. Although we were not very clear on how close to pitch it to the tent (you basically throw the roof section over the tent and guy on other side) we made it work and this provided an ideal space for wet coats, shoes and the cooker leaving us a huge living area in the tent itself.

The tent is extremely well designed and made including little features like zips and hooks in both bedroom pods to hand lights from. The tent is also flame retardant.

It easily fits back into an excellent storage bag which is unusual for most of the tents we've had.

My 1 and only tiny bug bear is that one of the side doors has a slightly stiff zip (hopefully this will loosen with more use)

However, it's very worthy of 10 out of 10 and we're very pleased we chose this model over other more expensive brands. Interestingly we only saw 1 other Royal tent on our site so felt quite pleased we had something a bit different!
