This is how crazy I am. Bold purple are the areas, pink is must-see, yellow is see-if-we-can, blue are the hotels, green are full-day trips outside Tokyo, and the magenta in the bottom left is a rough breakdown of how much time we'll have to ourselves each day. I figured 12hr days, roughly from 10am to 10pm, minus 2hrs for meals/breaks, minus 3hrs when we might get together with family. Not figuring in travel time except for the longer ones which I know how long it will take. Purple areas show how much time I expect we'll spend. I definitely need to make some cuts, especially in Asakusa/Akihabara. One or two arcades should be fine, I don't need to hit them all. I also need TMM to take a closer look at the toy stores and take off a few options. I haven't looked too hard into the owl cafes yet, there's quite a few in Tokyo and the decision may end up being whichever fits into the schedule better.
I normally don't get this detailed for trips but I really want to make sure we maximize our time there, but not get dead tired. I plan to make maps of each area and mark down the places we want to go (probably just use Google Maps and number the destinations, but the guidebook has nice mini maps too). I still have to keep it flexible, like the Eorzea Café we're hoping to get in at 7pm since it has allotted time slots and the last one at 7pm one lets you stay 3hrs. However, it is way too early to reserve right now, and probably will be until a month before hand. Also haven't gone into Osaka here but there's just one or two places I'm planning on since we have less time.
I think I mis-entered the info for Kawagoe, will fix later.
