The family and I (wife, 13YO) are headed to Tokyo for Spring Break (late March).
What are some of your "don't miss" suggestions while there?

The Kamakura Daibutsu. A quick train trip slightly south on the Yokosuka Line. Lovely little town, too. While down there, you might want to catch the ferry over to Sarushima. Back up in the city proper, there are tons of river tours. The Sumida River tour is a good one.

My youngest brother visited there some years ago. He thought it was quite cool. Even visited the Imperial Palace. His group had to leave early though,because the Emperor himself(Hirohito at that time) was on his way back.
