Visit temples, shrines, skyscrapers & bay area. Enjoy shopping and tasty Japanese food!
Temples, shrines, museums, Emperor's Palace, shopping, restaurants, parks etc etc.
Tokyo is a big city, you may find a lot of intersting things, which is up to you.
15 minutes walk to nice big parks, access to hiking in a small mountain within 30 min. by train from my apartment, a view of Mt.Fuji(far away, though) if the weather is OK
