I went one time last summer, but this time I'm bringing back my girlfriend to Tokyo/Osaka/Kyoto for 9 days. I just want some advice on what restaurants I should visit and what kind of foods I should try. I wanna try all the iconic dishes in some of Japan's best hole-in-the-wall places. Okonomiyaki, Sushi, Ramen, Sukiyaki, etc.
Last time for ramen I went to Jiro Ramen Mita Honten by Keio University, which was a exercise in endurance. But I definitely can't take a girl there. XD For sushi, I went to a place at the Tsukiji fish market and I intend to try Sushi Dai when I go back. What time you think I should go?
As far as other restaurants, I am completely clueless. Help? Thanks in advance.
