Heard that the menu for electronic items like cameras bought in Japan are all in Japanese and there won't be an English menu. Is that true?

Hmm, if it's true, fellow travellers from SG still buy from places like BIC Camera? How to read menu?

Not all. Anyway if you are looking for cameras and lenses, I would suggest Fujiya Camera in Nakano instead of BIC.

See Empire Hotel at Shinjuku suits you or not. It's a 1 star hotel. For one night shouldn't be any problem. I stayed there for 12 nights in early Dec. Nearest station is Shin-Okubo. One stop above Shinjuku on Yamanote Line.

If you are planning to take the Narita Express train from Tokyo to Narita Airport, then consider staying near Tokyo, Shinagawa, Shibuya, or Shinjuku station.

Since I assume you will be taking Shinkansen back from Osaka, so why not try to see if you can find a reasonably priced hotel near Shinagawa station?
Because Shinagawa station has direct access to both Shinkansen as well as Narita Express train. Even if you are using Haneda Airport instead of Narita Airport, there is the direct Keikyu train from Shinagawa station as well.

Maybe try the Toyoko-inn branch opposite Shinagawa station:

Or you can try this other hotel (more expensive that Toyoko-inn though) also located opposite Shinagawa station:
SHINAGAWA GOOS????? ?????????

Personally, I'd rather buy the tickets before I arrive at Disneyland/Disneysea.
Because the crowds to enter the themepark is already pretty long, so imagine if you have to go queue to buy tickets, then join another queue to enter the themepark.


This is how it looks like when queueing to enter Disneysea.
