I have been to Tokyo and it’s greater metropolitan area about a dozen times, but I have actually never spent the night. I have instead made sure to plan out very long layovers and spend the day exploring a new neighborhood of this giant city every time. I would strongly suggest that you plan your visits carefully, and know what you would like to do in advance. Also do not try to indulge too much as the city is an fact enormous. I really like to explore the weird parts of Ginza and Ikebukara and also the financial district and the area around the emperors palace. Hop on a shinkanzen train if you have time, its really worth it even if you are not going anywhere in particular.
