Savvy, make sure you check out Omotesando Hills - this place is the new Ginza, and its only acouple of blocks up from Harajuku

i bet you'll find some high class shit there, street or not...

just go up the main street, but look into the side streets too, as that's were you'll find the street shit
the Bape store isn't on the main street either, but it should be easy to find...

No Problem man, glad you liked it, if you ever have any questions feel free to let me know and I'll do my best to answer them. I frequent Japan and love it to death so I can help out if need be.

Yea I was gonna say, 6 days is not nearly enough time....Almost 2 days are dedicated to travel (Airports, planes and trains) and at least 2 days to start adjusting fully to the new time....You gotta go at least 10-11 days, also are you going alone or with friends?

yea i shouldve known 6 nights wouldnt be enough..im thinking your right since its such a long travel i might as well stay as long as i can so i can experience/see as much as possible while im already there..i plan on taking a friend along with me..ill probably pay for most of their trip as well just so i have some good company along for the trip.

Not sure how much money you make but the Hilton can be rather expensive when you are paying for it for yourself for many nights. You may consider on of the cheaper hotels in the Shinjuku area?

sure im not used to living in an upscale place so a less expensive place wouldnt bother me much..although ive made about $10,000 in the last month that i planned on putting towards the trip and im not too concerned with how much i end up spending of it..i think for the original trip i had planned for 7 days 6 nights was gonna run me like $4,000 total for round trip flight at the Hilton for 2 people...but if you have any other recommendations id love to hear them. Did you stay at the Hilton for like half your trip then the Hyatt the remaining time?

Yup, it's the perfect trip. I highly recommend you stay in the Hyatt for your last night! Best hotel ever!

haha nah im not rich calintz..i just went away on this job at this nuclear plant busting my ass for 5 weeks straight so i made a nice sum of cash by the end of it..the whole plan was to go on that job just for this trip blushing

the hyatt does look amazing..im not perfect with currency conversion but it seemed kinda pricey so thats not a bad idea to just stay there for the final night..i never even thought of the idea that i could always split the trip up between places to stay..is the hyatt in a good location also?

The Hilton is in the perfect location IMO, I love it and so is the Hyatt. Rooms at the hyatt start at $500 a night, I usually stay in the nicer rooms which are about $700 a night but only for the last two nights of the trip. It is well worth it, I love that hotel. I highly suggest you pick up Lonely Planet's Guide to Tokyo.

May can be good, might be a little rainy as June is their rainy season! You could pick it up at boarders or http://www.lonelyplanet.com/
