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?

Go to the harbor and see if you can see Godzilla.

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.

There is this very nice little forest.


Okay, so it might be haunted and;

The locals say three types pass through: hikers, rubberneckers, and those who aren't planning to come back out.

There are signs posted telling visitors to think about it. Park rangers walk the trails, telling anyone they come across to go back Abandoned cars litter the parking lot and shoes and discarded clothes line the walkways.

It's the Sea of Trees, Aokigahara, the suicide forest at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan.

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.
