Going to Japan – recommend me some stuff

Talk about anything here. Post lifespan is 1 year.

Going to japan with the missus and some friends (a couple) for 18 days in December. Staying 6 days in Sendai (catching up with a mate there) and the rest of the time in Shinjuku in Tokyo.
Looking for some suggestions of cool fudge to do in and around Tokyo. We are planning the odd day trip to Mt Fuji, and to see the snow monkeys etc, but nothing has been booked yet. Got plenty of time to sort it all out, so we’re after ideas of any interesting things to do as im sure there’s quite a bit out there!

I spent 5 days in Tokyo a couple of years ago and I still didn't see the whole city. I would recommend you get a guidebook and pick a theme for each day. Each neighborhood in Tokyo has its on appeal and things to see. Have fun man.

Try the local food, get outside your comfort zone with what is on the plate.

No where else feels like Japan for sure.

Enjoy the trip !

Have fun!

Best shopping for anime, toys, used books, vinyl, CDs, electronics, you name it (and I think Murakami's Kakai Kiki has a gallery there now) is Nakano Broadway.

Its out in the suburbs but easy to get to on the train, walk out the station, thru one shopping gallery and into the 2nd shopping gallery and up 2-3 floors for more floors of all kinds of specialty shops. There are like 10 different Mandarake shops there. I got TONS of amazing art books on Japanese artists for about $10 each that easily cost 6-10x that on ebay or in the USA. I bought as much as I could carry!

Check out the Tsukiji fish market - try make it out at the crack of dawn to see the Tuna auctions.
Japanese professional baseball and Sumo wrestling are also great spectacles.
There are tonnes of interesting neighborhoods to explore... plan on doing lots of walking around!

definitely checking out Tsukiji and hopefully, if the line is not too big, Sushidai.
