Day 1 Arrival in Shanghai
Sincere greetings & airport-hotel transfer. The Bund and Huangpu River cruise.
Our guide will meet you outside the baggage claim area of the airport and transfer you to the hotel. Later, we will transfer you to the Bund area to take a cruise tour on the Huangpu River. Along both banks of the river, scatter many landmark buildings, which reveals the past, present and future of the city. In addition, two suspension bridges, Yangpu Bridge and Nanpu Bridge, look like two dragons crouching across the river. With the Oriental Pearl TV Tower encompassed under their arches, the three form a picture of 'Two Dragons Playing a Ball'. All these make the Huangpu River Cruise an excellent way to explore the city's history, culture and charming landscape. After the cruise, you could take time to explore the Bund.

Later, you will proceed to the Yu Garden, also called 'Eastern Garden', a typical classical Chinese garden. The finely structured pavilions, winding cloisters, decorated walls and crystal pond together make the garden a charming and tranquil land in the bustling city.

US -> shanghai -> Tokyo-> Shanghai -> US

I'm a US citizen and got round trip tickets to Shanghai and back, but will be in Tokyo for the majority of my trip. My itinerary looks like this:

US --> shanghai (3 days)
Shanghai --> Tokyo (7 days)
Tokyo --> Shanghai (1 day)
Shanghai back to US.

Would this work for visa free transit? My round trip booking from US to Shanghai is in one booking and my round trip tickets from Shanghai to Tokyo are also within the same booking.

You are eligible for the 144-hour visa free transit if you are a U.S. passport holder and buy the onward flight ticket with confirmed seat and date in advance. You can stay and visit Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang area with no more than 144 hours. But if you would like to across to Beijing, you need to apply for tourist visa before.

We are arriving in Shanghai via China Eastern flight 0590 Mar 21and leaving China Eastern Flight 0563 on Mar 22 for India.
My ticket does not say anything about which terminal is the entry and exit and also whether I need to check out my luggage on arrival and then check in again on Departure from shanghai My understanding is since it is the same airline, I should be able to book my luggage straight to India and take the transit visa to stay in a hotel in the city. Please respond immediately. thanks.

You don't need a visa. But if you want to leave the transit area, you need to apply for the Stay Permit when you arriving at the airport.
About the transfer procedures, it depends on your airlines. It depends on whether if you need to recheck your luggage.
