Tokyo tips

Thread Starter 
Please could you recommend some interesting shops, restaurants and sights/places to see in Tokyo? I am aware of the previous threads touching on this subject but would wish to get some updated info. Thanks in advance!

Dunno if you saw this, but I thought Get Smart's trip was pretty cool.

Sukiyabashi Jiro. Supposedly the best sushi in the world.

United Arrows pretty much anywhere, Isetan Men in Shinjuku, Lumine in Shibuya, Burberry Black Label in Ginza. The +J collection at Uniqlo is probably the most comprehensive anywhere in the world too.

As far as shops go, I think this thread is pretty current:

If you decide to shop around the Aoyama area, you can stop by Meiji Jingu shrine, the entrance of which is at the top of Omotesando. Other popular tourist stops are Asakusa and the Tsukiji fish market. Taking in a baseball game or (on odd months of the year) a sumo tournament may also be fun, depending on your interests.

Sukiyabashi Jiro is eye wateringly good sushi, although you'll pay at least $200-$300 a head to eat there. The yakitori restaurant Gonpachi in Nishi-Azabu is popular with tourists and you should be able to get away with English there. You might also have fun just checking out some of the more local neighborhoods just outside the central wards, like Shimokitazawa or Kichijoji (both on the Inokashira line which departs from Shibuya). There you'll find good food, cool bars and interesting people.

Be prepared to pay a hefty markup for all imported goods. Japanese raw denim is best value in Tokyo IMHO.

You might want to check out some of the recommendations in CNNGo Tokyo ... a small but interesting selection of shopping recommendations here.. For example:

That's also marked up and the better ones are out-of-bounds for foreigners. So I heard.

Shopping is rather expensive in Tokyo on foreign products at least. What are the local brands which you would recommend (wise to have a look at) ? Thanks.

thanks for all the great replies! Much appreciated.

If UniClo is somehow considered "cool" back where you're from, you can buy it dirt-cheap here where it's popular but certainly not considered anything special.
