If transitting HND overnight then A good idea is to stay at the Royal Park hotel in the International terminal.Dinner just wander over to the terminal which has a very good range of restaurants.
The JAL Flounge at HND is very good.

Agree with this, however when I stayed there last year, they would not let me check in until 2pm, or whenever the official check-in time was. Would not look for an available room, just very politely told me that check-in time was 2pm (or whenever).

Things to do in Tokyo:

* Walk around the Imperial Palace gardens, very close to Tokyo Station, then walk up to the Diet building

* Wander around Tokyo Station during rush hour(s), wondering how the hell you get out, or over to the other side (there is a tunnel through the middle - you just have to find it)

* Shop in Ginza, also very close to Tokyo Station; wander the food halls at basement level of the major department stores

* Have a drink or two in any of the 'tiny bars' Tokyo's best tiny bars

* Ride the subways and trains and marvel at their precision and efficiency
