Go everywhere with the subway you guys! The easiest and cheapest way to get around Tokyo is under ground. The system is really easy to understand even if you can't read Japanese. Every station has a letter and a number so it is no problem finding your way.
You can't really talk about Tokyo and not mention the shopping. There are tons of innovative concepts stores and many shopping areas. Here are our favorite places in the fancy are of Ginza:
Kitte located by Tokyo Station is a large shopping mall with really cute stores featuring smaller brands.
Tokyu Plaza Ginza is another big mall with smaller, innovative brands.
We also love Mujis large concept store in Ginza. Here you can find all things Muji including furniture, books, stationary, clothes, restaurant and even bikes.

And the referees has the best outfits ever, which they change between each match so these sumo games are virtual fashion shows and we love it!
