Must-see and must-do in and around Tokyo?

My wife and I have an idea about the basics... like Shibuya, Shinjuku, Akihabara, Harajuku, Ueno, Odaiba, and Ginza. We also want to plan some nature-ful day trips to break up the intensity of the city: Kamakura, Hakone, and Nikko. Also we're staying at a little ryokan in Asakusa.
We've been to Kyoto before, and we speak passable Japanese. We're going to be in Japan for 7 days, and we want to make them COUNT, but still be relaxed and have fun, so...
From all these areas (or any others you can think of) what are the MUST see and do for gaikokujin visiting the Tokyo area for the first time?
Also - all guidebook and website recommendations are greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance. :)
