Of course major spot is also good, but I want you to feel the culture of daily life in Tokyo and the culture of the Edo period.
Because Tokyo has a shorter history as a capital city of Japan than Kyoto, but Edo period had a peaceful 260 years era and that created unique cultures.
The culture of Edo has a glimpse of food and buildings and traditional cultures.
I think that the east area in Tokyo is more likely to feel the “edo culture” such as Asakusa, Yanesen. 
Soba, Udon, Unagi, Sushi, Tempura..etc, There are many traditional and delicious foods.

Hub Japan is providing local experience and plans to try traditional cultures.
Tea ceremony, Calligraphy, Udon cooking...

Other major things to do are gathered here.

Have a nice trip!
