Longtime lurker, first time poster. I enjoy reading the Tokyo posts and although my budget doesn't always extend to dinners at the Michelin restaurants frequently mentioned here, one of the things I looovvvee about Japan is that great food can be found on any budget. However, I digress:
Some foodie friends are visiting early-mid January; including children, their posse amounts to six pax! I know that they're getting a sitter a couple of nights, but does anyone have foodie recommendations suitable for families in Tokyo?
The gyoza stadium and ramen museums are being looked at; we are more concerned with decent kid-friendly izakayas or other restaurants deemed suitable for a family with four children ranging from 5-11 years. The family is from Melbourne (AU) and fairly cosmopolitan when it comes to dining, so I am unsure whether so-called family restaurants would be appropriate!
I'm childless so am pretty much stumped re: this one.
Thanks in advance for any help!
PS. I did search through previous posts, but didn't see anything relevant in the first few pages
