Visiting Japan for the second time in April! Had such a great time last year I think I'll be a regular return visitor!
I'm joining a two week tour, but am coming out two days early so have a couple of days to kill in Tokyo. Shouldn't be too hard, but I'd love to get some advice on how best to use these two days.
The hotel's in Asakusa and the days will be the 4th and 5th of April.
I would definitely like to visit the Skytree and Tokyo Tower (so it doesn't feel left out). Will I have any trouble getting into the Skytree on those days? Do you need to book in advance?
The tour includes a cruise on the Sumida, and visits to Hamarikyu gardens, the Meiji Shrine and the Metropolitan Government building, so they're covered.
I quite fancy the following:
Ueno Zoo (visited the museums last year)
Disney Sea (travelling alone though so theme parks might make me look sad and lonely!)
Tokyo Dome City (ditto. A return visit to Koishikawa Korakuen maybe, I enjoyed it last year)
Some good Hanami spots. Is Sumida Park nice?
Maybe a show one evening (I like a lot of different music). Is it easy to find out what's on / book?
Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated!
