Can't miss restaurants and reservation lead times

PorkyBelly | Aug 5, 2013 06:51 AM

Hello.

I'm in the very early stages of planning my first trip to Japan, tentatively for early April 2014 (I haven't even booked airline tickets yet). I wanted to get your recommendations for some of the can't miss restaurants in Tokyo and more importantly how far in advance I need make reservations and the best way at going about making them (I speak no Japanese). What restaurants take reservations more than the typical 1-2 months in advance?

Some restaurants I'm interested in so far that I would like to get your comments on regarding reservations are:
Saito
Sawada
Sukiyabashi Jiro
Quintessence
Aronia de Takazawa
Ryugin

Thank you.
