Absolutely Yes!!! ... and also absolutely no at the same time, lol. At almost s$100 it is really quite pricey. If you like the ... pop culture, manga, bright neon lights side of Tokyo then it's worth going. Otherwise don't bother.

Note that the show is most definitely not authentic japan at all. It's a random mish-mash of what the show's creators think angmoh gaijins like about Japan and they just dump everything in and come up with some random show. It sucks and yet is freaking awesome at the same time

Robot Restaurant Tokyo

There are cafe all over. If you are going to take the narita express, then there's a starbucks there which can be seen from the narita express ticketing booth.

I'm interested to know what general medical charges are like, say like going to the GP when I have a fever or something non-life threatening that doesn't require hospital.

Definitely Nara if you haven't already gone.
Other than that ... maybe Kobe? At least you can do the touristy checklist of "I went to Kobe to eat Kobe beef"

If you don't mind 2.5 hours train ride, you can try going to Kanazawa for a day trip.

Star Wars themed train in Osaka

http://www.howto-osaka.com/en/specia...wars/contents/

Nankai Railways have this Star Wars themed train travelling between KIX and Osaka!

Anyone sat on this themed train before; I might be doing so on my last day.

Me and wife going Mt Fuji. She will be climbing with her friends and I will do some trekking at 5th stn. Will be in Tokyo area for about 2 weeks.

If you are serious about it, just book.
