not my first trip to tokyo, but this time i want to eat.
i live and eat well in new york and would like a greatest hits tour for my four days in tokyo.
i'm coming off a month long trip to india and thailand, so money isn't endless.
and i'll need to be a bit careful.
i'm a woman traveling alone, so i can probably skip the drunk salarymen places, but i'm not at all afraid to be the only girl in a place.
duh, i love ramen, would like a nice sushi meal, and perhaps an alternative to maisen for tonekatsu (although i could go back there if it is the best.)
i love architecture and modern design, so bonus points for pretty modern places by adventurous architects. i also love sweets of all kinds, ice cream especially. i'm staying is asakusa, but any neighborhood is a possibility. nothing too touristy, however, i have exactly zero japanese under my belt. my must stops are the ando ometesando because i think it is the most beautiful building ever and tomorrowland because i think it is the coolest shop ever.
