I have been reading the posts for days, translating menus and websites am soooo frustrated-- need help!!! Starting with Tokyo.
3 days in Tokyo - 2 in days Kyoto- 2 days in Osaka in July.
Starting with Tokyo.
Our hotel is in Maranouchi but we use public transporation. We are sophisticated, foodies, love really good food and have been to some of the best restaurants in the world. We like adult-like places but will go to a “hole in the wall” for really good food. We do not like sake, so drink is not an issue. We are willing to spend $100-150 per person for dinner, are not large eaters and usually grab something small for lunch (even pastry or ice cream). We are going to Japan for a total experience not just food BUT food is very important.
Tsukiiji breakfast: We eat sushi but do not have a conoisseur's palate. Where should we go? Sushi Dai, Daiwa Sushi or Takahashi? Dinner that night udon-soba etc? Where?
Ryugin has al a carte menu after 9PM. How does it work? What does it cost? Is it worth doing? If we don’t go here what suggestions do you have?
Does anyone know anything about Hortenisa (recent NY Times review) or Quintessence for dinner?
Yakatori for dinner- Birdland?
Will post other cities separately.
