My wife and I are going to Tokyo for the first time April 8-14. We've spent a lot of time reading posts on chowhound and other sites, but frankly it's overwhelming! Everything from the neighborhoods to the styles of cuisine are new to us...So I thought I'd ask for your advice.
We're staying at the New Otani. We are adventurous eaters and appreciate good food and learning about culture through food. The food is definitely more important than flash. We plan on doing a lot of walking around and exploring, so some neighborhood lunch recommendations would be great. Also, we'd like to have one "special" meal (not going for the most expensive necessarily, but a great experience) while we're there. We have a tour set up at the Tsukiji Market one morning, but other than that we're wide open to any and all suggestions! Thank you!
