Some discussion from our mailing list in summer 2011.

“I think we should do a THS recommends binder and pdf. to have to give out at the space.” – Lauren

Richard's Suggestions

  • DragonQuest Cafe in Shibuya
  • Akihabara, of course, for electronics / Gundam Cafe / Linux Cafe / Super Potato
  • Harajuku for costumers
  • Nakano Broadway
  • Asakusa (sensouji)
  • Kamakura for the daibutsu


  • Kamogawa to demonstrate that Japan isn't just over populated concrete hell?!
  • For people who like to travel north….
    • Matsushima is very nice.
    • Zao mountain is nice too.
  • Guess in general any other city which happen to have a festival during the visit. Japanese processions are by any means worth a visit.


  • small more eclectic neighborhoods
    • Kichijoji
    • Nakameguro
    • Jiyugaoka.
  • Tour of a few great food spots.
  • Tsukiji of course.
  • Book district in Jimbocho.


  • As far as nerd friendly tourist attractions go, I found the Ghibli museum to be quite memorable (even as someone who had never heard of Ghibli before visiting Japan).
  • Also on Odaiba the Sony Explorascience (though more for younger crowds)
  • National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.
