I've reserved a ten day stay with a English-speaking family near Ikeburo, so I'm going through with my trip to Tokyo, despite my travel-buddy dropping out due to a family emergency. The problem is, I was depending on her visiting her favorite hang out places as I tagged along. I'm sure some of you who read this have visited Tokyo before. Anything I should see when I'm there? The ten days should allow me to thoroughly explore Tokyo, so the next time I'm there, I can head over to the Kyoto-Osaka-Nara area instead.

Itinerary so far:

* Studio Ghibli Museum
* Fish Market (Aunt L's almond candy)
* Mt. Fuji day trip
* Shinjuku + Shibuya + Omotesando areas
* Harajuku and buy some leg warmers to keep you warm during winter.
* Ueno Park
* shop at Loft (cool stationary store), Mishokoshi dept. store, Takashimaya dept. store
* Ginza has a lot of dept. stores with food basements. Try all the local chocolate shops too. Go to Zoff and have glasses made in 30 mins. for about $50-70 each pair. (Check out designs offered at dongdaemun beforehand.)
* Food-themed museums (http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3035.html)
* Akibibara: maid cafe/yaoi <3


Food to eat:

* Fresh, hot okonamiyaki!
* Taiyaki from the street
* Signature crepes?
* wagashi (out of season?)


Experiences:

* Brave an onsen
* wear a yukata/kimono/some kind of traditional dress
* Watch/take part in tea ceremony
