Hi guys,

Planning on first solo trip to Tokyo probably around late February/early March for around 4 nights. My only goal in Japan is to eat eat and eat and maybe buy a few Japanese knives. Budget probably around 2.5k below.
So questions,
1. Is there duration enough?
2. Any places I should go? Based of my research Tsukiji, Golden Gai seemed like places to go for stuffing my face.
3. Where should I stay? Shinjuku seems recommended but ex sia. I dun min capsule hotels but checking out every day at 10am macam pain in the butthole.
4. Any tips for a first timer?

Arigato

Thank you sir !!!

Suica will do. If your child is below 12, he can use a child Suica card. For Kawaguchiko, take the express bus from Shinjuku Bus Terminal.

It's your choice. But if you would like to extend, could do a day trip to Kawazu for Sakura Festival. Else just stick to what you have planned.
2. Any places I should go? Based of my research Tsukiji, Golden Gai seemed like places to go for stuffing my face.
Hoppy Street in Asakusa and izakaya street under Yurakucho station. They are generally izakayas. How about ramen and sweets or desserts?
3. Where should I stay? Shinjuku seems recommended but ex sia. I dun min capsule hotels but checking out every day at 10am macam pain in the butthole.
Cheaper places - Ueno, Ikebukuro and Asakusa. Hostels if you've got a tight budget. Hotels if you could afford it. There's private rooms in hostels too.
4. Any tips for a first timer?
You'll be fine. Have fun!

Alternatively just request at Airfrov. Higher chance of getting it imo, for a few more dollars.

Booking Airbnb in Osaka for 3 person. My friend recommended me to book around Namba but price rather high. Any other places to recommend?

i think you have to at least state your budget per pax for one night than people will be able to recommend something along your budget.
