I am reaching Tokyo 5th morning with my partner. I have shortlisted places to visit, and grouped them based on their proximity with each other. Can you help me plan how and when to visit these places. Also Disneyland both parks are a must(wont spend whole day in these parks). Which of these is a must watch and which of these can be left ?

Grp 1
Kabikucho - night Tokyo metropolitan building Yoyogi park National Olympic stadium Harajuku Grp 2:
Roppongi Tokyo tower Rainbow bridge Imperial palace Edo castle Grp 3:
Sensoji Ueno zoo

Takeshita street
Mt. Fuji
Disneyland+ Water-land

Hi again,

Sorry I am a little confused by your question.
Do you want to know what the best way is to visit all these places?

What you could do is a day trip on the 5th in Tokyo visit
The Imperial palace - Ueno zoo - and after head to the Tokyo Metropolian building before - diving into Kabukicho for some night time amusement.

On the 6th you can start the morning at Tokyo tower and visit the Rainbow bridge, perhaps include a visit Odaiba? After you can drop by Sensoji, see some culture in Harajuku (Takeshita street is located here) - Walk to Yoyogi park and enjoy a peaceful evening, or make a stop at Shibuya.

The next morning on the 7th you can visit Disney land and sea, do note that you can easily spend a full day in either park so I would limit you visit to one and enjoy the most of it.

Than on the 8th you have all the time in the world to take the Bullet train to Osaka. I would leave Mt. Fuji for a future visit as it can be somewhat time consuming to travel there and your time in Japan is somewhat limited.

I hope this helps,
