I'm going to Tokyo at the end of November for the very first time and would love some insider info. I'm there for ten days and would like to experience life in Tokyo. I'm up for seeing the locals who dress as cartoon characters, tech bargains, sushi, mma, sightseeing and of course shopping. Not necessarily in that order. Any gems of knowledge will be much appreciated and the more off the beaten track the better!

    I posted this some time ago. You may wonder how to deal with ordering in a restaurant. Many restaurants have a display of life size models of their dishes. Ask the waiter to come outside with you and just point to what you want. They're used to this and it's easier on them as well as you. almost 6 years ago

    Make sure to go to the historic Asakusa district with its beautiful temples and markets: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asakusa

    My favorite, most exciting memory of visiting Tokyo, though, was going to the Tuna Auction at the famous Tsukiji Fish Market. Only 120 people a day are allowed to observe it, and you have to get up very early to get in, but it is REALLY worth it. Here's my experience of going to the Market in November: http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2012/09/05/a-morning-in-tokyo-the-tuna-auction-at-the-tsukiji-market/ almost 6 years ago
