    Default Tokyo for 2 weeks...

    Anyone have any suggestions on good places to eat and good sights to see? I know MegaWeb is #1 for me so I can see some cars while I am there, but any other suggestions?

    Well I've been out here since '97. Ginza, Roppongi, Shibuya are all great areas to find good food. Ginza is more higher end. Go on the weekend when they shut the streets down, its a pretty cool site to see all the high rises and not a car on the road. Roppongi is the spot for Nightlife as well. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights are the best. I've seen every car out there except for the Bugatti. Shibuya crossing has been in every movie and music video that has been filmed here in Tokyo. Over a Million people cross at that intersection a day. Def. a must see. Dai Koko Futo is the spot to see all the cars. It used to be every Saturday night around 7-10. It's a large rest stop off of the Bayshore Route Expressway. I haven't been out there in Months and last I heard if you don't get in early the cops shut down the ramp. Hope you enjoy your trip. Feel free to PM me if you have anymore questions.

    If you're a futbol fan you can try to catch the face off between Japan & North Korea on Sept. 2 in Saitama…third round of Asian qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup.

    Ugh I should have posted before I left, but I just got back. I pretty much spent 90% of my money on food. It is a food city after all. Not much in terms of good sushi except one CRAZY early morning at Tsukiji but the amount of Yakitori I had was unreal haha
    I couldnt arrange any super extravagant dinners because the Michelin places I wanted all required advance notice, same for the kaiseki places. But I did manage some equally great kaiseki lunches on short notice
