Specifically, I'll have some free time on Monday given that it's a holiday. Besides going to Matsumoto Kiyoshi, Daiso and/or Don Quixote is there anything new, interesting to do or see? Are any of the Olympic venues near enough, done enough and interesting enough to look at? I'll be staying near Shimbashi.

Probably too late but as it's a rainy day, what about some modern art in Odaiba?

Lonely Planet recommends teamLab Borderless:


Some of my friends praised the exhibition a lot.

Thanks. I ended up buying a bunch of crap at Don Quixote and that was my main activity before meeting up with a friend for dinner in Chofu

Does anybody know if there is any risk to opening up the sealed bags they packed my stuff in (for tax free purposes) in order to repack them in my suitcase? By the time I go through customs my suitcase will already be checked in.
