Is it possible to travel over sea from Shanghai to Tokyo? I've heard about Shanghai Ferry Co. which offers weekly departures from Shanghai to Osaka. Are there any more companies with similar offerings?

As far as I know there is no possibility of a direct ship to Tokyo. But from Osaka to Tokyo it's just a relatively short train ride and you can visit Kyoto if you want.

You'll have to take Shanghai-Osaka ferry and then take a train to Tokyo.
Do a Google for "china japan ferry" for more information about schedules and prices.
