You can take the airport limousine bus? Starts very early in the morning and takes around 1hr 15-30mins to reach Narita.

The main stop is just in front of Keio Plaza at Shinjuku station. You can check the website and the place is quite easy to find. Lots of tourists carrying luggages too.

u can check hyperdia on the train timing:
Hyperdia | Timetable and Route Search in Japan.

8:30am not a problem coz the trains start running at 5+am

With NEX, earliest from Shinjuku will be 05:55, subsequently a few more that can bring you to Narita before 08:30

tokyo to osaka is at least 2.5hrs using the Nozomi shinkansen, and 3hrs Hikari shinkansen.

but yah, tokyo for the latest trends and shopping.
osaka is a big city as well, but u can travel to kyoto for temples, shrines and old building.

for 7-9 days, i will stick to either tokyo or osaka.
for tokyo, u can make some side trips out of the city, for example to visit mount fuji. if u like theme parks, disneyland and disneysea will take up one day each as well.
for osaka, 7-9 days is just right to cover the popular places in kansai, such as osaka, kyoto, nara and kobe
Most attractions for Tokyo can be travelled through subways/trains right? Osaka is more for sightseeing? If 8days just for Tokyo, is it too much or little?

yup, trains and subways will get u to almost all the key attractions in tokyo.

osaka is also city, just like tokyo. sightseeing is probably just osaka castle. there is also osaka aquarium and universal studio in osaka. from osaka, u can travel to other parts of kansai for sightseeing, such as kyoto for temples and shrines, and kobe for mount rokko

8 days for tokyo i think is okay. u can spend 4-5 days on the main places in tokyo, 1-2 days for disneyland or sea, then maybe an overnight trip to hakone for view of mt fuji.

u can refer to this website to get an idea of wat to expect in tokyo
Tokyo - City Guide
