Good? I've bought so many limited edition CDs from different branches around Japan. Awesome...

Would be great to get some hints from you guys regarding what is a must to do during this short stay in Tokyo.
There's much you can do in Japan in three days. You could go train crazy like me
but I wouldn't suggest it for a first timer. This tram ride
around some of Tokyo's quieter places is on the list for my next visit.
Shinjuku and Shibuya are highly recommended, especially for a night visit, for shopping and the neon canyons. Check out Tokyu Hands and Loft some quirky stuff you never knew you needed. Asakusa is a bit of older Tokyo, but can get rather crowded on weekends. Ueno's Ameyoko Street markets can be a bit of fun in the evening. I enjoyed wandering through the covered arcade at Asagaya on a recent trip, just to see something a bit local.
If you've never been to Japan before I would strongly suggest getting out of the city for one day and going somewhere smaller. On our first trip to Japan I felt something was missing and it wasn't until we travelled out to Nikko for a day that I fell in love with the country (and it's deep love!). Talking to others who have restricted themselves to the large cities they often feel that something was missing from their trip.
Places that we've gone around Tokyo that you might like to consider (in no particular order) are: Kamakura, Kawagoe, Nikko, Mito (not worth it for your trip) and Hakone. The Gunma area looks to have some scenic railway lines and interesting small towns, but my explorations have so far been restricted to Takasaki and Yokokawa. Keep in mind that it will be winter when you go.
Take a look at my First time in Japan?
