I'm trying to save up some funds for next year, I'm broke. What are some "must do", touristy things to do that I can fit into one week? It's gotta be kid friendly.. I'll have my boy taggin' along.

Im here at the moment, must do's are Harajuku & Shubuya have some sweet ass shops. You guys in the US probably have some of this stuff already, but being from OZ we get fuk all!!
Eat with the locals at the little eat outs, great food at great prices and good value as they just love having tourists in their house.
I could go on all day, but just walk your ass off, look up & down as the great stuff is hidden, you will love it!!!!!

Highly recommend a JR Rail Pass!!! Cost us about $300 for a week, sounds expensive but that gives you access to the JR rail lines all round Japan for that price, was a god send for us this week!!!

If you haven't already hit up CoCoIchi, then you must do so. Best curry place in the world.

I think thats true everywhere. Even in the US, you've got huge restaraunts and then you have small local spots that may not be as fancy looking, but they serve excellent food thats more (tryna think how to put it without knocking anyone) "hometown american" or local specialty than something like Houstons or Emerils.

Plus they tend to be cheaper, which means more $$$ for shoes and clothes.

i wouldn't get JR Pass unless you're planning to go to different cities.

If you're sticking to Tokyo, you don't need it.

if ur on a budget, dont sleep on the 7-Elevens here, they are not the best ever but are waaay better than the ones in the states. You can get some super cheap sandwiches, snacks, and chicken/pork+rice type plates.

super markets have deals too on the katsu bowls and just look around for a bit. stay away from beef cus its super expensive.

there are great art shows/store openings/design events too. some are more expensive than others, but worth the money.

the whole city is a "must do", basically dont be afraid to get lost. you will find some cool stuff.


here is a link to the art info.
