Have you been there before? If not, then do all the tourist stuff (Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Empire State, Times Square etc). If you have been before then what did you enjoy while you were there?
Nope, never been before.
Do the tourist stuff then.
I'm only there for a few days so was just wondering what to prioritise inbetween Christmas shopping.

I went to an Anime convention in Atlanta in 2007 if that helps.
I bought a pack back last time I was in Germany and one of the guy’s in this show bought a pack in this week, too Wonder how much of their sales are just from British people who think it’ll be a fun gift because of the name.
Holy Christ I finally know why so many people are obsessed with Japan. This is the first time I've been on holiday where not a single part of me has wanted to come home at the end of it. Such an awesome time, and finally got to meet my girlfriend's mum and her partner. He's an amazing Ramen chef who owns a restaurant, and they asked me to cook my Gyudon for them. Was pretty much bricking it the whole time as he stood there watching me make it, but he seemed to love it. I was almost in tears with the praise he gave me (translated though my girlfriend).
Also my gf's mum is giving her (and by extension me) her 'spare' house in Osaka. So that's a bonus.
I too would like to know where you went. I'm heading over after Christmas for a couple of weeks in Tokyo and one in Kyoto. Did you go to Osaka? I'm planning to visit from Kyoto and could do with some tips (eating and drinking being priorities).
I was in Osaka and Kyoto. If you're in Osaka eat Okonomiyaki. It's a local speciality and is amazing, kind of like an omelette pancake thing. There's a place called Okonomiyaki Keji very near Osaka station you should go to, though you might have trouble getting a seat if you go around 'normal' dinner time. Well worth it though. If you like whisky there's an awesome bar called Kowloon’s between Osaka station and Tenma (easily walkable from either). The manager knows her gooseberry fool and there's quite a selection, so you'll definitely get something good. Quite expensive though.
