Harayuku shopping area (1-2 hrs)
If you like to see people in people in mad outfits, you have to go there during the weekend, especially on Sundays. You can go there by train to Harajuku Station. From there you will see the small shopping streets already. Just walk around through the area and when you’re done, treat yourself at one of the many bars or restaurants.
Roppongi entertainment district (3 hrs)
The area also attracts people with less good intentions unfortunately, so if you go there, take care of your belongings.
To go there; take a train, Toei Oedo line or JR Hibiya Line to Roppongi. Then take eit: Roppongi Hills.
Riverside Capsule Hotel (1 night)
Unfortunately the only way to have a look inside; is by booking a room, as they don't allow any visitors. But for only 3000 Yen per night, the coffin is yours, including TV with many ‘wonderful’ channels.
One of the best-known Capsule Hotels is in the Asakusa district; nearby Senso Ji temple and only one minute walk from Asakusa station (exit 4). The hotel is located at 2-20-4 Kaminarimon, Taito-ku.
Tsukiji fish market (2 hrs)
The most important reason why we mention Tsukiji here; is because it's the best place in Tokyo to eat the freshest sushi, sashimi and other seafood dishes during daytime.
To go there, go to Tsukiji subway station, Hibiya line and take exit 2 to Metropolitan wholesale market. On Sunday and holidays the market is closed, but the surrounding restaurants are always open.

Uobei is located behind Shibuya 109 mall, just one minute from the world famous Shibuya Crossing. The place is open from 11 am to midnight.
The street name is Dogendzaga Koji. It is the first small alley behind Shibuya 109 (coming from Shibuya crossing). Have fun and enjoy your high-tech sushi.
