If you are looking for an easy way to see Japan that is also FREE, check out a tour using Tokyo Free Walking Tour. You can find them on social media and also using the website link below.
The majority of their tours run over the weekend, so as you are planning your Tokyo itinerary leave ample time to join their tours. The tours are limited to attendees – so try to get the meet up location early and pop your name down on the list of attendees. The guides all speak impeccable English and are very friendly. The tours are indeed free – but leave a handsome tip at the end of the tour.
I liked the below tours – they were beautifully curated and I still had time to enjoy the rest of my day in Tokyo after the tour.

Visit the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace, going back 400 years in time to the days of the Shogun right in the center of Tokyo!
