First Day in Tokyo, Izakaya, Tsukiji...

I'll be making my first trip ever to Japan this coming Thursday and have been highly anticipating/fearing the food scene in Tokyo. There are just so many options and when the language barrier comes into play, I just don't know where to go, hence I have come to Chowhound for help.

Can anyone recommend a good, reasonably priced (around $50usd/per person including drinks) traditional izakaya near the Hotel Okura in tokyo where my lack of Japanese will not hinder a good time? I was thinking that since the hotel is near Roppongi that area may be good to go out for dinner in since the plan our first night is dinner, then go out to an all night club/bar (reccs for this would be appreciated as well) then stroll into the Tsukiji market in the morning for a fresh fish breakfast (also if there are places here anyone would recommend I would appreciate it).

Many thanks in advance!
