I’m going to Japan for the first time in late March and I would appreciate some travel advice.

I will land in Tokyo at about 5 pm after a long flight and have to be in Hiroshima the following evening for dinner. My plan was to stay overnight in Tokyo then get the train to Hiroshima the next day.
Where should I stay in Tokyo? Ideally it would be easy to get to from Narita, easy for the train the following day and somewhere I could walk around to get even a little of the flavor of the city. I would be OK paying ~$100 in the US for a room.
How do I book train tickets? I’ve been to japanrailpass.net and (I think) they want to sell me a 7 day pass when all I want is a round trip. Is there a better English language website I should be using? What time should I plan to leave Hiroshima by train to be on a 6 pm flight from Narita?
What should I see/eat in Hiroshima?
