Spending 48 hrs in Tokyo in December as a stopover between Australia and Europe. Any help regarding which sites I should concentrate on would be helpful!!

It's a huge city. If you've never been before, just wandering around will be such a great way to see a different culture.
Try Ginza of course for shopping etc., as well as the 'electronic alley' of gadget shops.
The Ueno Park area in the NE of the city was a good base for us.

go to the Shinjuku area - it's one of the busiest areas of Tokyo and the station handles 2 million passengers a day! Shibuya is a lively shopping and entertainment area which is worth a visit.
