Hello, everyone! I'll be spending 5 days in Tokyo in spring (March 31st-April 4th) with my husband and I really need some help with the itinerary. We plan on staying 3 full days in Tokyo, and the other 2 on day trips to Nikko and Kamakura. The problem is, I haven't been able to fit in these 3 days everything I want to see in Tokyo.
We are very nerdy people and would like to see this side of the city, but we also want to experience the more traditional side, and really want to enjoy hanami as the sakura will be in bloom at the time. What we canft miss: Studio Ghibli Museum and TeamLab Borderless in Odaiba (where people say you spend 3-4 hours, and it closes at 7PM on weekdays).
My initial thoughts:
Day 1 (Sunday): Harajuku-Shinjuku-Shibuya
Meiji-jingu Shrine, Yoyogi Park, Takeshita-dori, Omotesando, Nezu Museum and garden, Ota Memorial Museum of Art, Shinjuku Gyoen, Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, Robot Restaurant, Samurai Museum, Shibuya crossing, Hachiko, Tower Records, Meguro River.
Day 2: Tsukiji-Imperial Palace-Akihabara-Odaiba
Tsukiji, Hamarikyu gardens, Imperial Palace Gardens, Chidorigafuchi, Akihabara, Themed cafe, Super Potato, Odaiba.
Day 3: Ghibli Museum-Asakusa-Ueno
Ghibli Museum, Edo-Tokyo Museum, Senso-ji temple, Nakamise Dori, Tokyo National Museum, Ueno Park.
I think this leaves too little time for Odaiba. But I really donft know how to make it better. Do you think we should skip on a day trip and leave 1 more day for Tokyo instead? All help is appreciated, thanks in advance!
