If you like to get some experience with Japanese gardens, visiting 
Imperial Palace East Garden http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3018.html is 
not a bad idea. This garden is located at a walkable distance from Tokyo 
Station.

And if you like to see Japanese temples, Sensoji Temple 
http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3001.html in Asakusa is worth a visit. 
Asakusa can be reached from Ueno station by subway in 15 minutes. 
For finding train routes in Japan, http://www.hyperdia.com is helpful.

on Saturday. The way that has been recommended involves walking to the 
train station on the Queen's Walk (next door across a bridge), changing 
trains once, and walking from Akasaka Station, which is a very doable 
walk (I have done it before). http://tinyurl.com/p592sso

district (http://love-and-adventure.com/akihabara/). Be aware: the 
Japanese concept of "electronics" is "things that use electricity"; you 
might find telephones and washing machines in the same store. But they 
have a lot of toys there.

the obvious place to be if you plan to take the Narita Express to the

is a couple of hours north, or possibly Higeii Castle, near Osaka.
