You could try http://www.tokyorentabike.com/

You haven't said what kind of bike you want. Not that it makes much difference because what they have is all they have. A journalist from Chicago got one of their bikes earlier in the year and found it adequate for a Half Fast ride. (His blog)

As massa has previously pointed out, it might be easier and more economical to buy a second-hand bike and sell it when you leave. This shop has several branches - they buy and sell used bikes of all kinds: http://www.cypara.com/access.html
