last day in Tokyo 2007/10/17 17:30
As seen from Ikebukuro railwaystation: East Exit walk to Sunshine City outlook 60th floor ( fee Yen 620 ), By JR Yamanote in direction of Shinjuku, but further on to Harajuku, back to Shinjuku, west exit and 15 min walk to Metropolitan Office Building Observation Platform ( free, so why visit Sunshine City outlook at Yen 620 ? ), back to Ikebukuro, pick up luggage continue by JR Yamanote line to Ueno ( if you go by Keisei line to Narita airport, better to Nippori station, two before Ueno, for easier transfer from JR track to Keisei track ). Train ride: Ikebukuro - Harajuku 15 min - Shinjuku 4 min, Ikebukuro 10 min, Nippori 15 min.

Cosplay 2007/10/18 01:10
You speak of a Sunday? So do Sunshine city ( does not know opening hours ) and Metropolitan office first ( this opens 09.30 h ) then to Harajuku ( shops at 10.00 h and later ). Sorry, cosplay is not a theater performance at fixed times, but just people with similar interest who are gathering, preferably later then too early. You can just have a look.
