Going to Japan

A few friends and I are gearing up for a trip to Japan in May. I'm sure there are plenty of Polynauts that have either gone and/or lived in Japan so my question is, what do I need to see? We will only be there for about a week and a half but obviously I'd love to see as much as possible. It doesn't have to be gaming related either. For instance I would like to visit a maid cafe just for the experience. Is there anything overhyped that I should avoid?

I figured Polygon would be a great way to find out seeing as a lot of us probably share common interests even outside of gaming. Thanks for any suggestions.
