I never been to Tokyo but a bit of research and looked at a map of Tokyo and it looks like there is not much to do outside of the central core. The central core is where you have that anime/manga streets, the Ginza, commercial streets, and the Imperial Palace. Outside of that I know you have a Korean neighborhood. But other than that I don't know where else to go to see something fun.

There's a lot of places to see outside of Tokyo's central core. Most tourists go outside of Tokyo to Mt. Fuji, Yokohama, Kamakura and Urayasu (Tokyo Disneyland/Disneysea). Odaiba is also a nice place to go to, it is within Tokyo but lies outside the Yamanote Loop (which is by most definition, what is Tokyo's central core).

Well what do you like to do?

Like the Sanrio characters like Hello Kitty? There's an theme park called Sanrio Puroland to the west of Tokyo.

Are you into the Studio Ghibli films (Miyazaki)? Also in the western suburbs (Mitaka) there's a Studio Ghibli museum.

Plenty to do.

You can also visit Nikko and Hakone if you want to get away from the urban areas.

There are theme parks, hiking trails, quaint small town areas, temples, shrines, etc. I think the more general question is what are you looking for? What is interesting to you?

If you ever get bored of Tokyo, you can always catch the Shinkansen to Kyoto. The journey only takes 2-3 hours and you can check out their pagodas.

The fact that you think you could get bored in the biggest city on Earth and one of the most dynamic, entertaining, never-sleep cities on Earth, says more about you than about Tokyo.
