Hi All- I'm working feverishly on planning some meals for my trip to Tokyo next week, and one of the things I am running into is the need to make reservations for many popular places, even at lunchtime.
This is obviously a challenge since I can't read or speak Japanese, but I'm doing what I can (for example Birdland is on OpenTable, yay!).
I *really* want to try Butagumi while I am there, but can make no sense of the web site and it doesn't allow me to run the Google translator -- can anyone who is either able to speak Japanese or who has been to the restaurant let me know --
(1) is it possible to make reservations there, and
(2) is it desirable / necessary?
