What to Expect
Pick up two to three spots from below list in either side of the city. If one each from the east and west side are chosen, your time loss will be 30 to 40 min..
When either Tsukiji market or Sumo morning training session is selected, add one spot from the east dide spot.
At Sumo training stable, feel the wrestlers' heartbeat, body temp and breath in hard training. You can take photos and chat with them after their training.
East side of Tokyo
Tsukiji market or Sumo training stable house(their availability required).
Asakusa Sensoji temple and its surrounding quarter
Kappa-bashi kitchen ware street
Ueno Park district with Yanaka cemetary and old residential area
Akihabara, the nerd's town with manga and anime
The Imperial East Garden(closed on Mondays and Thursdays)

Other spots of interest(surprise spots) in the east side
West side of Tokyo
Shibuya (the world busiest pedesrtian crossing, The loyal dog Hachi stature and Center-Gai street)
Harajuku(Omote-sando high street, Takeshita-dori(girls shopping alley), Meiji Shrine or real Samurai Katana-sword shop)

This is a time saver's tour in Tokyo. Tsukiji fish inner market and the tuna auction moved out to Harumi.
Sumo training stable visit depends on their availability. Minimum 10 day prior notice is required. Also, patronage finance of 3000jpy per PERSON is asked by the training house, paying to me in cash before going into to the house..
Oyakata, the head of the traning house is the Chareman of Sumo Association. So the training of the house got even harder.
