12 Days in Tokyo

Jump to last reply

Back to Japan for our 5th time.
A two week trip, I had planned a week in Tokyo, then a rail tour of Kanazawa, Matsue and Furushiki, towns I'd had on my must see list.
Change of heart and wanting a more relaxing stay I changed to just staying in Tokyo.
A wealth of information from this and other sites leads me to believe it won't be boring and I'm counting on going back to see those cities and places I still have on my "list".

We'll land in Haneda and stay at Hearton Shinagawa for three days to check out Odaiba area and the Design Festa at Tokyo Big Site.
Then to Shibuya for a 3 day stay at the Granbell Hotel.
Then a move to Akihabara Washington for 8 days and home.
Last 8 days is still somewhat flexible for long day trip or overnighter but we've seen Nikko, Kamakura, Yokohama, Hakone , Kyoto, Takayama and Kyushu before.
Maybe a Mt Takao day trip or a run down to Izu ?

I've used the Tokyo Eye, NHK program web site archives to form a list of neighborhood walks with an emphasis on food, architecture and museums.
Bento.com has been good as well for restaurants as has Metropolitan Magazine.

Any tips would be appreciated and thanks to members on this site for the information they have already provided.
