As my trip to Tokyo gets closer (December 19th through the 30th, 2010) I am becoming less sure about my itinerary. I am feeling overwhelmed with the amount of choices and the more I research, the more I question my choices.
For example, I have planned for some time now to stay the entire 10 nights at The Mandarin Oriental and then I read that if given a choice most would choose the Peninsula due to it's convenient location.
I have a few "must do's" I have come up with, ie: Ginza on our first night as it is a Sunday and we want to see the holiday lights and street festival. I also must see Harijuku and Kabuki Theater at Kabuki Za. I want to shop at Wako Department store and will be getting tickets to the Ghilbi Museum.
Other than those special things, I am feeling a bit crazed by all of the chioces and am hoping for suggestions for 10 days in Tokyo.
Fortunately, money is no issue so any and all things are possible. I would like to enjoy a mix of both traditional and new Japanese experiences but not quite sure how to incorporate or orchestrate that. A friend suggested I do not miss the opportunity to stay in a Ryokan but I thought it easier to base myself from one central location and go from there.
I will appreciate all suggestions and thank you.
