What a great city to visit! Your daughter is going to have such fun exploring Tokyo and getting to know about the Japanese culture. For some information on what to do and where to go, she should check out the articles at http://www.holidaycityflash.com/japan/ . She would also enjoy checking out
Some of the places she should check out should be Shibuya and Shinjuku. She find more info at http://www.jnto.go.jp/eng/location/regional/tokyo/index.html
I'm sure she'll have a great time in Tokyo.

And read journals!!! I wrote one after a recent trip. One thing I learned? The train to Kyoto would have been a lot cheaper if booked in advance from the States! The Japanese are planners, so she needs to find tours ahead of time.

If she is going to Kyoto it is highly recommended to get a week Japan Railpass.
The rail pass is not much more than a roundtrip to Kyoto. At the start of my trip I only had Tokyo and Kyoto in mind but with the railpass I was able to go to Hiroshima, Nara, Nikko, and Mt Fuji. Basically you can go anywhere! Make sure she purchases the ticket at least a week before she leaves because you can't buy it in Japan. The Japanese public transport is exceptional as the trains arrive and depart the minute they are scheduled.
Hostels are the way to go for the budget minded. I stayed at Sakura Hostel Asakusa in Tokyo. Great location and one of the best hostels I have stayed at.
Hope she has a ball, which I really don't need to say.
Almost forgot Tokyo has a great music scene. It is quite an experience to see one of your favorite bands in a foriegn country such as Japan.

To stay :
A while back the New York Times cited our listing of the New Koyo hotel's $21 single rooms as "an internet miracle".
