Seven days is not much time. Rather than go to more venues - and spend more time in transport, see well what you see. You can always return on another trip.

While 7 days is definitely not enough, which I am sure you understand, but whatever may be your constraints, you can still enjoy the flavours of Japan. Are you planning to include your day trip to Nikko within the 2 and 1/2 days in Tokyo? Among the 7 days, I would suggest, that you keep aside 3 days for Kyoto - where you can do 2 days Kyoto and a day trip to Nara. Both are worth the visit, I must say. I would prefer Nara over Nikko. There's lot to explore in Kyoto and Nara. Though two days are surely not enough for Kyoto, but you can still see quite much. A day trip to Nara will see you through quite a few Historic monuments of the place, which have the pride of place in Unesco World heritage sites. You are then left with four days in Tokyo. You may want to do a day trip to Nikko or may be kamakura and keep the other three days for Tokyo. There's much to explore in Tokyo, I must say.

You can visit the links below to get an idea about things to see and do in Kyoto, Nara and Tokyo:
