We went Akibahara last year alr, not an anime fan. So this trip more of eat n shop!
Ikebukuro or shinjuku neither is better than the other, end up depends on what you want ma. Ikebukuro got sunshine city got namjatown can go there eat gyoza, visit cup ice museum and eat snake and chicken wing flavour ice cream, can eat miracle fruit that makes sour things taste sweet. Can go ikefukuro owl cafe play with owls.

Shinjuku got golden gai got piss alley got nightlife got tons of izakayas got robot restaurant.

We went to sunshine city before, not our type. Gyoza we alr going to harajuku to have it haha!

That time not sure we didn't researched shinjuku properly, so we felt that's not many things to do there other than atas shopping malls.

For owl cafe, we were planning to go for the one in Osaka shinsaibashi... But some reviews saying it's not worth the $ @-@

Below is my itinerary for Tokyo, had a last minute decision to visit mount fuji as a day trip. So trying to rearrange again...

D1- shibuya
D2- harajuku
D3- tsujiki market/ginza/Tokyo station/ikebukoro (initial plan)
But thinking to replace ikebukoro with shinjuku instead
D4- disneysea
D5- day trip to mount Fuji (initially d5 was shinjuku and shibuya agn)

Is it btr to replace ikebukoro with shinjuku?

Impossible! Cause I've booked airbnb etc already. So day ride is the best I can do. But follow tour is like almost $150 per head

Since u dun need it the same day, y not just use normal forwarding services such ta-q-bin, and fwd it straight to ur next hotel.
Get ur current hotel to help u make the arrangements and to help u call the next hotel to inform them of the incoming luggage

Same thought that I had, 1 way straight there, no need to change and considering there are luggage to carry.

Just wondering, are these bus usually full? do we need to pre-book them before going Japan?

just buy e tix after exiting e arrival luggage pickup area.

$320 for 10 nights is super cheap. My 10 nights already close to about $1.5k
