Here's everything I did without breaking the bank!
-Stayed in Shinjuku at Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku, very small room, but right next to the train station. The hotel was absolutely perfect for my stay!
-Shinjuku Govertment Building, head over and take the elevator to the penthouse floor, I did it during the day and evening, price: FREE Also just enjoyed walking around Shinjuku and all the neighborhoods in Tokyo.
-Tsukiji Fish Market, you'll find this recommended in every tourist book, check it out early in the morning, entry: FREE Buy some seafood if you like!
-The Sony Building, check out the latest and greatest gadget and electronics, entry is FREE
-Imperial Palace, another place you will find recommended in every guide, check out the palace and statues in the area, price: FREE
-In Ueno, check out famous statues and parks FREE, and Tokyo national museum (Under $10).
-Harajuku, check out the temples and shrines and tori's. All FREE, shopping in Harajuku is cheap in some areas and upscale/pricy in some others. Highly recommend googling walking tours of Harajuku and pick your favorite.
-Roppongi Art Museum (under $10). Enjoy the museum, then stay for a beer at night overlooking the city with views of Tokyo Tower.
-Odaiba, Museum of Emerging Science, under $10, check out this place and expect a few hours, so much fun regardless of age etc. Make sure you bring your best camera to get some great pictures on the beach in Odaiba.
What to splurge on:
-Onsen in Odaiba, immerse yourself in Japanese culture by bathing in hot springs pumped from hundreds of feet below the Earth, enjoy the dining and old Tokyo set up at the Onsen, no better way to feel a part of Tokyo in you, and don't worry if you are shy, the Onsens are single sex only.
-Dinner on the harbor in Odaiba.... can you tell I liked this part of Tokyo yet?
-Traditional Japanese souvenirs
-Foot massage, only one I ever had in my life, but if you are enjoying Tokyo by foot as much as you should be you will need one!!!!
-Clothing... if it fits! Tokyo is always on the front of Fashion, do some heavy duty shopping in Ginza and Harajuku, not at your chain stores but individual boutiques.
