A lot depends on your interest, but here are a few thoughts based on my years in Japan:

Most interesting sites in pretty much any cities would be in the older, narrower streets, so the wider the better.

It is autumn in Japan, soon winter with short daylight, dark after 5pm so the faster your lens the better. + If you have any interest in the numerous ancient temples and similar sites with low light, a fast (and preferably wide) lens would come handy there too.

So out of the ones mentioned I would take the 12-35/2.8

Enjoy your trip!

I agree with you.  I find the 12-35 to be very suitable for urban environments, plus a super wide for some interiors.  35mm is enough to provide a useful fore shortening effect, too.
