You can think of adding following

1. extra day at Yokohama as it has lots to see.
2. Kamakura and Enoshima
3. Yamanashi
4. Nikko and surrounding aresa
5. Mt. Takko

Have a great trip.

Hi, I just posted on another thread something similar, but I would look at going to Karuizawa and maybe Bessho Onsen, both of which are on (or just off) the Hokuriku shinkansen line toward Nagano, then on to Matsumoto (from Nagano) and maybe Kamikochi.

I would seriously consider Hikone & Kanazawa and then as has already been suggested Kamakura and Enoshima as a day trip from Tokyo to finish.

Personally, I found Kamakura and Enoshima rather boring (but that could've been because I visited these places after having lived in Japan for six months as an exchange student and having seen A LOT of the country already). Nikko is really nice though, and you could easily spend a day or two there: One day visiting the shrines and temples, and one day for the nature surrounding Nikko. I would suggest to then travel up to Sendai (about 1 hour from Tokyo by shinkansen). From there, you could visit places such as Yamadera, the Sanriku Coast (and cat island, if you're into that) and Matsushima Bay.

Mt Takao, as has been mentioned before, is really nice as well, and can be reached in 50 minutes from Shinjuku.

Mountains above Shizuoka. Tea farms. Onsens. Dams. Lots of forests.
