I've booked a two week trip for later this year. First time! Appreciate any input/info on 2 week Japan itineraries and recommends for hotels/accommodation at key places (Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto etc.).

Is Iron Heart Hachioji the only branch near Tokyo or is a IH Shop direct in Tokyo? Don’t know if I wanna go to Hachioji again in my next trip. It was a fun bus ride tho...

Places I liked in Tokyo:
Iron Heart Hachioji
Full Count Harajuku
Warehouse Ebisu
Junky Special Shinjuku
Supreme/Neighborhood Harajuku
All the Vintage Shops in Harajuku

3x Hinoya and 610 Americana in Ueno are ok, too crowded for my liking.

Vegan Food:
Ts Tan Tan
Ain Soph Ripple
Mr Farmer
Pickled Plum Onigiri at 7/11 :D

Went to SDA and RMC in Osaka so no mentioning in my Tokyo List...

No Iron Heart shop in central Tokyo, I am afraid...

If you go to Hachioji, I would not go by bus....

Japanese Baseball is amazing! So much co-ordination, activity, and general buzz from the crowd. 3.5 hours of non-stop 'things' for players and runs etc. Goes SO far beyond the rally cap/sweep traditions.

Worth going to for anyone in Japan up for an experience, don't even need to like the game! (but it'll help).

http://www.japanball.com/tickets.htm is where I got our tickets from, delivered to the hotel.

The Seibu Lions were my favorite team back in the early to mid-80’s. My mom hated my Lions baseball cap for some reason and always hid it from me. Last time I went to a Japanese ball game was in 2000 or thereabouts. I think my ex and I saw the Yomiuri Giants and the Chunichi Dragons I think
