I only had 3 days each in Tokyo and Hong Kong, but managed to see plenty. The day I arrived in Tokyo there was some cultural action around where I was staying, not sure what it was, but I think it was a 'national cultural day' which could mean anything. I was staying in Asusaka, near a main temple where there was dancing and music going on in the morning. I'd flown over night, so crashed out in the afternoon to discover that there had been thousands of people in the street in the afternoon. Ah well, I'm sure it was great.
I spent the next couple of days exploring and just generally having a look round, while trying not to get lost. I didn't do a lot of sightseeing as such, but it was enought just to wander the streets and try and take it all in.
Hong Kong was much the same, although a bit easier to get round to see the sights, spent time going round a lot of markets and watching old people doing tai chi in the parks.
I enjoyed them both a lot, although was becoming a bit desperate for vegetarian food
by the time I left Hong Kong, don't think I could have stayed much longer!
