2 Weeks in Japan: Tokyo-Kyoto-Takayama-Tokyo

Hi:

My wife and I are leaving in two weeks for two weeks in Japan. We’ve never been before but after many weeks of studying the boards are very excited for what sounds like amazing food. Unfortunately, neither one of us speaks a word of Japanese (our French is perfect, if that would help somewhere – you never know) but we’re patient and hopeful that it won’t be that much of a problem.

Anyway, here’s our itinerary so far. I’d love some feedback. Not a lot of lunches listed, I figured we’d rely on Bento.com depending on what neighborhoods we’re in.

I know a lot is closed around New Years, we made a point of being back in Tokyo and made a few reservations around the holiday. We’d love some ideas in Shinjuku for NYE. Thanks so much.
