I did Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, and Kobe, but it's been 10 years and it was more of a shlichus trip than a tourist trip.
Any specific questions?

I did not write a TR as i doubt many would find it useful, I spent most of my time in the hills, i avoided big cities.

Honestly I'm not sure. There's a shul and mikvah there, but I don't recall anything amazing there. Kyoto is amazing as is Tokyo.

Worth noting that Costco has kosher products from the US. And it's pronounced Cost-O-Co, ask for Costco and nobody will know what you're talking about.

How long is your stay? I am taking JAL the "other way" around. JFK-LAX-SFO (AA F) and SFO-HND in F for 62.5k. I'll be landing the 8th.

That's a ton of stops. I'm going nonstop JFK-NRT
I'm leaving the 4th and Returning the 13th.
pretty sure there is no "F" class on my flight since it's a a dreamliner

Akihabara, Shibuya, Tokyo Tower, just wandering around and getting loss in the sheer madness of the massive city...
