If you're headed into the Kansai region, then you must visit Fushimi Inari Taisha and Kiyomizu-Dera in Kyoto. Walk along Gion for a taste of old Japan. 

If you're going to be staying within much of Tokyo itself, check out Sensoji Temple and Akihabara . If you want to rest after much walking, visit Shinjuku and Shibuya for some fun people watching. Don't forget to catch a picture with Hachikō if you hit Shibuya Station

Have fun!

What time do you get there? Autumn is the best time in Tokyo. Also, don't miss Ueno park, Sensoji shrine, Tokyo National MuseumThe Tsukiji Market, Ginza, Bunkyo Civic Center Observation Deck,... I had wonderful time there. You can view my friend's trip to Tokyo here. She quotes all the info for eating places, stay and things to see in Tokyo.

If you can afford it: travel to Onsen to Kinosaki and stay at the luxurious Yamamotoya (http://www.kinosaki.com/en/index.html).  Be sure to book a private dinner in your room too.  I've backpacked through Japan and stayed in hostels, but ended my trip here (just chilling and enjoying really good food and service) and it was amazing. 

For Tokyo:  Tsukiji fish market (have sushi there!), karaoke, manga shops.

In Tokyo grab a Pasmo card from Tokyo metro stations-at machines (have English option) or station offices. Pay a deposit and load card-use on rail system, some buses, and can use in some corner stores to pay for purchases-totally worth it. Suggest going on the Tokyo Pub Crawl-will meet people from everywhere-look on their website for meeting times. The Robot Restaurant in Kabukicho is an experience-3 shows a night. Try to get to a baseball game-Japanese games an experience. Walk across Shibuya crossing. Sensoji Temple in Asakusa-have fortunes in English there, by the way. Train to Mt. Fuji for day. Tokyo Skytree for views-a bit expensive but amazing city views. Harajuku to see crazy fashions worn, great shopping, Meiji shrine and nearby Yoyogi Park. Piss Alley-Omoide Yokocho in Nishi Shinjuku for restaurants and bars. Get train to Kamakura-lots of temples,quirky eating places-is a good day trip. Definitely go to Kyoto. If you intend doing a bit of travel outside Tokyo, suggest a JR pass-must get it before going to Japan. Hiroshima-the Heiwakinen Park. If you get down this far, visit Beppu-highest geothermal activity in world-stay in traditional lodgings, visit the 9 "Hells", have a sand bath at the beach and visit onsens. Enjoy-Japan iswonderful place to visit.

Hey, Tokyo is worth plenty of your time as there is a ton to see! I write a travel blog and I've done a post about what you can see and do in Tokyo:

Also, Kyoto and the Kansai region are incredible! Kyoto is full of culture and tradition and the nearby city of Osaka is full of great nightlife and food. Its also worth checking out how to do Japan cheaply http://bit.ly/1LVRdJK
