I have been doing a lot of research for my trip to Japan, of which 6 days will be in Tokyo. (4 in Kyoto, overnight in Mt. Koya and overnight in Miyajima). I'm trying to plan a balance between teen son's interests (mostly Tokyo!) and mine.
Anyway, I am a nut about having a schedule, and there are a few specific questions that I am trying to nail down in terms of timing. Hopefully someone can help me answer some of these:
1) We are staying in Shinjuku (Sunroute Plaza) so are close to the Tokyo Metropolitan Gov't Office. Is it better to visit in the early morning or at night for views? I've heard both recommended.
2) We would like to see a baseball game. I've looked at the schedules and during the time we are in Tokyo (May 31-June 4) it appears the Tokyo Giants are not playing at home. I'm thinking we could go see the Seibu Lions on Wed. June 3 at 6pm. How easy/difficult is it to get to their stadium? How much time should I allow for transit and what time should we plan to arrive for the game?
3) Also, we would like to do the Kabuki "one act" matinee tickets. I cannot find on the English version of the site what time the matinees start. Can anyone tell me about what time we should plan to be there IF we want to attend the first matinee act?
Thank you so much for any help with these questions.
