The Japanese Imperial Family live there now. When I'm in Japan I usually drop in for tea.

You can look at the buildings from outside, there is also a nice statue of Kusonoki Masahige

Who I believe has a strong connection with our traditions.

If you want to look inside the Edo castle compound their are tours (I haven't been although I went to the Kyoto palace). Look here for more info on it:

Well, it's "Kusunoki", not "Kuso...".

BAD slip of the keyboard there. He's a scary looking guy, I imagine when he was alive making a mistake like the one I did in front of him would have been the last thing I ever did !!!

Kusonoki sounds like one of the friends of Buri-buri Zaemon.

Has anyone been to Disney land/sea in Tokyo?

Yes. I think the Disneys are great for kids but I didn't really enjoy myself that much. For the most part, especially at disney sea, the rides are tame and almost boring. But other people love it so...

I was just reading on Japan Today's website and found this... how interesting!

Also, for those visiting, there is a sumo tournement from September 9-23. If you have time and are interested, you can go to the Kokugikan at Ryogoku station in Tokyo and purchase tickets. If you are comfortable with reading some Japanese, then you can purchase them from a convenience store (Family Mart is my recommendation). Cheap tickets are 3600 yen for the full day.

Also in that area, is the Edo Museum and I hear it's really good, and there is a map at the station marking out a lot of interesting places to see in the area.

Not far from Ryogoku, you could take in Yanasen, part of the Shitamachi, or old town, of Tokyo.

Take in a concert!
http://www.tokyogigguide.com/home
http://www.creativeman.co.jp/

Concert tickets can be bought at Lawson convenient stores or online at:
http://eplus.jp/sys/main.jsp
http://t.pia.jp/

Buying tickets requires some Japanese skills. If you have problems, try this page HOW TO BUY TICKETS IN JAPAN or ask a friend who is knowledgeable in such things.

Disney Sea is great especially if you go in the evening when its less busy, mostly adults, and you pay evening price.

Tsukiji is fun and you can use your Taijutsu to dodge all the forklifts and bumbling tourists.

Rather than seeking out certain temples or shrines I'd take a walk within 30 minutes of where you sleep. I bet you will stumble over a couple interesting ones.

Any place that has onsen, hiking, and restaurant serving beer is a sure fire destination for a fun day.

Definatly check out which local festivals are happening when and where. Some are more famous than others but they are all fun.
