Where are some historic locations you recommend in Tokyo?

Past and Present

A "historical" location is a bit of an open ended term, as basically anywhere in Tokyo that has existed for an amount of time is in its own right historical. if you are interested in the evolution of Tokyo through the Meiji and Showa periods, leading up to the current Heisei period which began in the 1980's, you should definitely give this website, MeijiShowa a look.

Here are shown pictures and renderings of Tokyo of the past, and when compared with current pictures of these areas, it really puts into perspective the rapid industrial growth Japan experienced through the 20th century:
