I forgot to mention that Hakone is a great day trip from Tokyo - there's a train trip that covers the journey there, access to the volcanic area and also the 'pirate' ship back (google it and you'll find it easy). The museum of modern art there is really good too.

Thanks for the reply we are going to Harajuku / Akihabara too, just not put a specific thing into Google Maps for it yey. Meiji Shrine is a possible too as we will be so close, but we both want to see the mega city that is Tokyo mostly.

We have Suica cards on our iPhone already lol

Good point on the Metro Govt building have added that now

Ghibli I loved a few of the films I saw, Laputa was the first anime I ever saw as a kid one cold Xmas on Granada TV I even imported the Japanese laser disc of it lol ! I really do enjoy their films but my partner is cold on them. I have seen mostly WOW reviews of the place but while I think I would enjoy a visit, as there are no pics inside (the giant robot in the garden is a photo op that nearly on its own ants to make me go! ) there have been a rare few who it did not meet expectations and fear that might be me. Anyway, it is off cards, but will be buying merch from the stores around Tokyo.

Robot restaurant looks very intense for me!

Asakusa - Sensoji Temple
Shinjuku - Tokyo Metropolitan Government Centre
Harajuku- Meiji Jingu Shrine, Daiso Store (largest in Japan)
Ueno Park
Imperial Palace Gardens
Tokyo Tower - One Piece Floor (an anime if you dont already know lol)
Nakano Broadway
Mt.Takao
Tokyo Disney and Disneysea (2 days maybe 3)

Collect Eki stamps from stations (if they still do them) - also stamps available at most landmarks, museums etc
Collect Temple stamps (Goshuin)

Im sure Ill still be adding stuff and changing things for a while yet 😄
So many things the same !
I have that Daiso added, but the store does not look that big from the street on Google street view..all part of the fun to see what it is like!

Gachapon I have recently become obsessed with these! I found them by accident while looking at YT video of TDR and found the KAWAII ARCADE MASTERS channel and love the weird and wonderful things you can get in them! Think might be buying quite a few of them myself lol.

The inside of Ghibli is an intensely themed Ghibli mecca. 4 exhibit rooms surrounding animation and ghibli in general that are very interesting and beautiful. There is a cinema screening room showing their original short animations which is great and photo ops are excellent and its surroundings picturesque. Loved every second. Wasnt a long experience in itself but getting out there and back to mitaka took a little while too.

Just finished my first 14 hour disney day. Exhausted now. Haha
