Default Going to Tokyo - where should I visit?

Depends on where you want to go. No recommendations (never been to
Tokyo yet), but try this:
go to Google Maps:

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl

Click on "Find Businesses" tab.

In "What" text box, use this:

or:
tea

In "Where" text box, use this:
東京
or:
東京都
or:
Japan, 東京都
or:
Tokyo

Some may not be what you're looking for, but you just have to filter
through the results to see. I don't speak Japanese - so that's the
best I can do.

And that trick works for pretty much anywhere else in the world too.
