1) once i touchdown haneda, wait till early morning, and catch a cab to the market at 4 am.then after the market , go to shinagawa to check in at hotel , walkaround shinjuku,shibuya..etc or

2)going on the 2nd or 3rd day early morning(2nd day is also trip to disney),(3rd day is already checking out and then, travel to kyoto by shinkansen line)

I was at the gate at 4.15am, stayed in a hotel a block away.By 4.30am, the guards were turning people away , disappointed people. all passes were given out. It was on a week day in November last year. So if this is the must see on your list, I would suggest you arrive as early as you possibly can and get a coffee from the vending machine and wait it out. However, like they all say, it depends. Next couple of weeks will be the cherry blossom season, so be warned there could more people around wanting to visit the auction. I will be in Tokyo too in the coming weeks.
