    Hola como estas?
    there are lot of things to do in Tokyo. I see you guys will arrive on the 6th. I want to let u know that in the first weekend of April (Saturday and Sunday) mostly everyone will celebrate hanami (viewing cherry blossoms under the trees"picnic style", food and drink drink drink) there will be some events for travellers and foreigners so you can meet people. I'll let u know.

    About the tourist attractions, I'll recommend you to go first the area of Shibuya, it is my favorite place in tokyo (it has the busiest walking intersection in the world) building with screens and lights.
    Harajuku is a good place to visit, you will see some unique fashion among the young people. There's a famous shrine called Meiji to visit.
    U can check Odaiba, an artificial island right in tokyo bay. It has new malls, attractions. the best part is taking the monorail from tokyo to here.
    Asakusa is part of the old tokyo where you can find temples, stores with japanese arts. In this place the new tower Tokyo Sky tree located, it offers great views of tokyo skyline)
    Akihabara is the electric town, u can find everything related to electronics,gadgets, manga, anime etc
    The imperial palace is also a good place to visit, is quiet and it has nice gardens.
    About japanese culture, u guys have to try the food. I recommend ramen. there are a lot of places to eat in shinjuku.
    and of course karaoke, u can't leave Japan without going to Karaoke. it is a unique experience.
    I hope this helps, I'll be there around the same time as you guys. so if you have questions let me know.
