Well After the quick purchase of rediculouly cheap flights from Melbourne to Toyko, I've planed out my qucik Week Stay in one of the greatest cities in the world Tokyo!

May 26th- Tokyo Disneyland
May27th- Tokyo Disney Resort PArk Hopping
May 28th- Tokyo- See a few Shrines and Temples, Visit Akihabara, go to Tokyo Tower, go to Roppongi Hill, General Looking around
May 29th- Geek Day, Sony Building, Odaiba Island, I loved this area last time, check out the Panasonic Centre, Sega Joyopolis, Shopping, Then off to Shibuya check out a few things, Find the place i got my Nike Air Forces last time get some more. Have a bit of a look round Shinjuku Genral touring again today.
May 30th- I Fly out at 9pm so In the morning going to take the train down to Yokohama, Have a look round, visit the Raman Museum, then head back to Tokyo if got time just some last minute looking round near the hotel. Then off to the airport. Home :-(
So its a bit of a whirlwind trip. But seeings as i was only there in September 08, I spent 2 and a half weeks in Japan then so this is Just seeing a few things i missed last time and of course getting my TDR fix.
So I just have a couple of Questions-
Rail- Looking around looking like i will get a Sucia Card at the Airport. As they have a deal for 3500yen you get the Suica Card, A one way trip on the Narita Express and the Suica Card with 1500yen credit after that. So that is looking like the best deal and i will just chuck on credit on the Card at the Station throughout the week. As i have my Brother with me who has never traveled OS, the Sucia Card seems eaiser then trying to get him to understand the Ticket machines and figure out what length ticket to get each time. And the Sucia Card Trips cost the same as paying for a ticket anyway, just seem like less hassel.
Last time I used a Rail Pass but didn't seem cost effective this time as I was not using any Shinkensan Trains were these make the cost worth while.
Unless anyone has any better options for Travel from the Airport We need to get to Shinjuku Station, as were staying about 5 min walk from there.
Accomodation- Were staying in Shinjuku, I know not the best spot for visiting TDR from but the hotel is nice and the deal was really good. So just get up earlier to get there an hour before opening.
Does anyone have any suggestions on good places to eat, little gems, or some less know places to visit that we shouldn't miss.
Really Excited for this trip great to not have a long build up of waiting for once! Only 16 Days to go!
