Does Tokyo have a historical old town? Or is it just modernist and concrete?

If you are talking about a district where older architecture has been preserved, no... Much of Tōkyō's older architectural heritage has been lost for a variety of reasons (natural disasters, war, redevelopment), so you won't find large districts with old architecture completely intact. But you can find individual buildings here and there, particularly in older parts of the city like Chūō Ward.

I found this random building while strolling around Ginza. It's only the facade that's intact, though... The insides were gutted out to create a new space for a Barney's (you can see the additions on the left side of the first picture).

We were in Japan more or less the same time and our threads are on the front page at the same time!

You have nicer pictures though. Looking at these just makes me realize how little I really saw.
