I'll be going to Japan with a couple of friends in February 2009. We will be in Tokyo for four days and the purpose of this trip is to experience Japan’s finest cuisine. I read all the recommendations that are posted on this site and I would like to thank everyone for some GREAT information and a special thanks to Exilekiss, Four Seasons, Silverjay, and HKTraveler.
I plan to visit the following restaurants:
Roman-ya for Izakaye
Menya Kissou for Ramen
Sushi Saito for Sushi
Kondo or Mikawa for Tempura
Fuku or Toriki for Yakitori
Sazanka or Romantel for Teppanyaki
Maisen or Tonki for Tonkatsu
I’m open to any other suggestions. Please let me know If you have other places that you would recommend.
I would also like to visit the following high-end restaurants. From what I’ve read, it is really difficult to get reservations; can anyone provide me with their fax or email address, so I can try to make advance reservations?
Aronia de Takazawa
I’m also looking for recommendation for restaurants in Kyoto.
