This is a common mistake that most foreigners make when visiting Japan. President Obama too did the same and he was criticised a lot for committing this blunder.

While bowing is a Japanese tradition, shaking hands is a western tradition. You should not mix the two cultures by doing both the things together when in Japan. It may cause a lot of embarrassment and confusion.

Then if you want to say sorry, there is a bow for that too. For a mild apology, there is a bow with a head bending at 10 degree. For regular apology you must bend at 45 degree with your upper body and for a serious apology, you would need to make a 45 degree bow of the upper body for 10-15 seconds. If however you have committed a very serious mistake, make a bow from a kneeling position.
