While in Tokyo, there's a couple of notable places you can go, such as Harajuku's Meiji-jingu, the temples in Asakusa, museums in Ueno, and Akihabara if you love electronics, anime and the like. The night life in Tokyo is really good, and it's highly recommended to go out in the evenings to just take in the evening atmosphere.

There's about 3 things you can do FROM Tokyo, in addition to exploring Tokyo itself:

1. Visit Nikko, home of Ieyasu Tokugawa's tomb and is a World Heritage site:

2. Visit Kamakura, home to one of the biggest Buddha's you'll see

3. Visit Mount Fuji (or at least the underlying town)

Hope this helps!
