She wants to get to the Sensoji complex in Asakusa as well as the nearby Drum Museum on the way to Kappabashi-dori -- all doable within a couple of hours after Tsukiji. Saturday could just as easily be spent shopping in Shibuya before heading back to Ryogoku for the Sumo.
    Actually, I don't remember looking around the east gardens, and earlier this year when there it was raining (so my wife said no). I'm sure you know, though, that there are other nice parks/gardens if you can't make it there. Have you ever been to the Tokyo Forum in Marunouchi? I don't know if it's worth a visit on a short trip like yours, but I love that building. http://www.architravel.com/files/bul...Forum_main.jpg

    SameGuy - I forgot to point out that, obviously, you are still not settled. Anyone who lists their home as an airport code (YUL) still has some issues with this.

    I generally list my home as PDX, because it is easier to type than Portland, Oregon. It has nothing to do with issues!

    You don't like typing, I guess. But I'm concerned SameGuy lives in Pearson International Airport.

    YUL is actually Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport(Montreal)
    Pearson is YYZ

    Whoops! Ya got me. Yup, I guess some of us haven't spent much time in the country lately. YYZ for TO, which I'd suggest as a cosier airport home for SameGuy than PET/YUL. Much bigger and modern.
