As a single female traveler, I need recommendations for things to do/places to go at night in Tokyo.

All parts of Tokyo are safe for single females. There are areas around Shinjuku that are seedy but still safe. Stick to areas like large shopping districts and malls and you%26#39;ll be fine. For food and dining, go to the top floor of the large department stores until you know the area. Then top it off at a busy outdoor bar for people watching. Seems crazy but this is the best city for it when you find the right place.

As previously noted, Tokyo is a very safe city. As in any other major city, common sense prevails. http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2164.html
Check-out Dave%26#39;s link. Of all of those locations, the Harajuku station with a walk down Omotesando is a winner for a combination of everything and completely safe. Enjoy,
I will heartily second the safety aspect of Tokyo from our Tokyo experts. I walked around at 2 AM without a care in the world.
The Shinjuku area is just an absolutely teeming mass of humanity day OR night, don%26#39;t miss it!
I went to Roppongi hills (on my own), to the Mori tower and art museum on my own- There is an observation deck (both inside and on the roof 60+ floors) and you get an inclusive ticket to the modern art gallery- I%26#39;ve been twice and seen Turner prize and other artists there, plus the views of Tokyo (including the tower) are really cool. Its a nice way of spending an evening and you can really appreciate the size of Tokyo from up there. I walked through Roppongi there and back (my hotel was in Akasaka) with no problems.
