    Yes I think it will be enough. Last summer I spent about 4000usd for a 7 day trip to japan with hotel and airfares and did a little bit of shopping as well, (well not brand names, just some souvenirs) The cost also covers JR fares, admission fees (if you are visiting places that requires admission fees). If you plan to buy brand names like head porter or blue label, you wont have enough la~~~

    If you want cartoon stuff I think you can go to Ueno or Harajuku or Ginza, they have a 4-5 stories tall toy store and a wide selection. Probably you can get wonderful items that you wont be able to find in the US (maybe you can, but pay a lot in Ebay) Department stores will have a toy section too, but the selection will be smaller. I highly recommend you go to those speciality stores. They will even wrap them up nicely for you too~If you want the store name I can look it up for you.

    If you want action figure, you can visit Akihabara for that.

    (ps. I am at work now so I dont have that book with addresses and opening hours but I can update this thread if you need me to)

    yes I also akiharbara is for toy worms and collectors, but it doesnt hurt to visit kiddyland in harajuku or the toy town in Ginza... by the way I remembered there is a Jenny store next to that toy town, a lot of wonderful jennys are on display~

    and I forgot to mention, maybe you can try snoopytown as well, not sure if you will like it.

    one recommendation for ueno is you can leave it to the finally day and visit the area before you hop on to the express train to narita airport. If you are going back to N.america, I dont think you will be buying fresh produce or fruits, otherwise you can eat them there.

    2007-01-20 07:27:58 補充:

    In Ueno, why not visit the toytown lei.... it's not as big, but it's like the last chance to get your treasures if you miss the chance earlier on. (I especially love their Ball Joint Dolls~~~)

    Finally if you need the specific information and location I have a book I used for my travel and I can e-mail you the scanned pages if you like, so just PM me, I am happy to help~

    2007-01-22 21:53:05 補充:

    The toy store name in Ueno is Yamashiroya, and it has floors

    2007-01-22 21:54:33 補充:

    I have been to a burberry store. You can go to Ginza and they have a blue label collection in the basement. But personally I like the burberry store in Odaiba Venus fort... a lot of styles to choice from~

    2007-01-22 21:56:08 補充:

    I dont think they will sell a phone to you unless you can provide a residential address in Japan. So even it's cheap you cant get it. The ones you can get are those prepaid ones for foreigners which arent that good looking at all.

    If you want cheap accomodations, will you consider 民宿?? They are cheaper but not as much facilities as in hotels. I think ikebukuro's hotel are cheaper than shinjuku. last time I stayed in Hotel Theatre.

    2007-01-22 21:59:31 補充:

    Hotel Theatre is great because it's only 5 minutes from ikebukuro's JR and there are plently of fast food or restuarants nearby... and drugstore if you want to buy cheap japanese brand comestics. hope this all helps la~

    I think it should be enough, but it depends on what you buy and eat... The price of toys are amazing in comparing to North America and ebay. I've spend about $600USD just on toys, got 3 case full and a couple of limited items, yet I still regret that I've pass on some of the "good stuff"~! ToT

    If you're a hobby worm like me, go to Akihabara (秋葉原). Toy stores are actually everywhere and many of them are something like 6~7/F tall (Stairs/Elevator is usually at the back so it's can be easily missed~!) You'll find everything there... oh, prices do varies, so do some research b4 you buy.

    Ueno (上野) toy town is overrated. Yes, they got many items but prices are high.... as I said you can find everything in Akihabara...

    Ginza toy town is right next to burberry... nothing special, full list of items but price is still no match for Akihabara... But I did find one limited edition item there~!! Oh well...

    Surprisingly, the Toy'r'us located in Sunshine City of Ikebukuro (池袋) is kinda cheap?! I dunno if they're on discount or what but some of the stuff are even cheaper than Akihabara when I was there~!!

    Kiddy land in Harajuku (原宿) is about the same as the other toytown in Ueno & Ginza...

    Someone told me 中野 is even better than 秋葉原, I didn't go, you can have a try there...

    2007-01-23 00:13:38 補充:

    Burberry: can try Ginza Store, Odaiba Venus fort and also Shibuya.... I don't really suggest Ginza, too many people there. Also, the other 2 stores got more choices. If I remember right, there's also one in Harajuku, but that one is black label.

    2007-01-23 00:14:09 補充:

    Anime stuff. Try Kotobukiya's new store, on the 1st floor of "Radio Kaikan," just a few steps outside the JR Akihabara station's Electric Town entrance. FYI, Kaiyodo is on the 4/F and Volks is on the 8/F.

    2007-01-23 00:14:36 補充:

    As I said, Akihabara is for worms... you know how good stores located on diff floors which you have to walk on some old stairs located on the sides or at the back? I don't really suggest it if you're not looking for "treasures"...

    2007-01-23 00:16:54 補充:

    I lived in Shinjuku last time but I don't like it. The place is filled with Karaoke, bars, strip clubs... too many people hanging around on the street. My friend told me Ikebukuro is better so I may try that next time...
