Shinkansen or bullet like trains, mayb x but worth the experience. We should always try different transportation (if can afford) since we never ride b4 in our small island/other country :D

Peace :angel:

Or you can try what I did a few years back; took a day trip package for Mount Fuji. Bus pickup from hotel, with english guide, to Mount Fuji, includes cable car ride up as well as cruise, and thereafter shinkansen back to Tokyo main station. So ggot to do both :)

Countdown to flight tomorrow :)

u can read up on the attractions in tokyo here:
Tokyo - City Guide

can also get some ideas from the trip reports sticky thread

the fish market is in Tsukiji, which is walkable from ginza. u may want to go there early in the morning to view the tuna auction. most ppl actually take taxi to tsukiji to see the auction coz it is too early for train. lucky for u, u can just walk there from ginza

By Japan Railways (JR)
The JR Tokaido Shinkansen requires 15 minutes and costs 1380 yen (by unreserved seat) from not so centrally located Shin-Osaka Station to Kyoto Station.

Almost equally fast are the rapid and special rapid trains on the JR Kyoto Line, which require about 30 minutes and cost 540 yen from more centrally located Osaka Station to Kyoto Station.

By Hankyu Railways
Limited express trains on the Hankyu Kyoto Line get you from Umeda Station (next to JR Osaka Station) to Karasuma and Kawaramachi Stations in central Kyoto in roughly 40 minutes and for 390 yen.

By Keihan Railways
Limited express trains on the Keihan Main Line get you from Yodoyabashi Station in central Osaka to Sanjo Station in central Kyoto in roughly 50 minutes and for 400 yen.

Please visit the Singapore Japanese embassy website for all the details. Please print out all the necessary forms before going to the embassy. Saw a family went there empty handed. Had to go back and come back another day.

As part of its move to boost inbound tourism and to enhance ASEAN-Japan friendship, Japan on June 26 announced that Malaysian and Thai nationals on short-term holiday of not more than 15 days to the country need not apply for visas from July 1.
