Hi guys,

I'm going to Japan next month, 14-30 May

I've done all my planning on where to go,
now on my last stage of research which is where to eat.
There are so many options on where to eat in Japan, and all looks good, but I just want to make sure we utilise our time for the best experience.

So far, I've been reading blogs and found this:

Tokyo (7D) - will be staying at Shinjuku
Sushi: Kyubey (Ginza/Keio Plaza Hotel Nishi-Shinjuku), Sushi Diawa (Tsukiji), Sushi Zanmai (Tsukiji), Sushi Kanesaka (Ginza), Sushi Iwa?, Numazukou, Uoriki Kaisen Sushi (B1 Tokyu Dept Store), Sushi Sei (Tsukiji)
Tonkatsu: Katsukura (Takashimaya Shinjuku), Maisen Tonkatsu (Aoyama)
Ramen: Menya Musashi (Shinjuku), Gogyo (Minato), Nagi, Ichiran
Tsukemen: Rokurinsha (Tokyo Ramen Street)
Tempura: Daikokuya (Asakusa), Tsunahachi
Udon: Mentsu-Dan (Nishi-Shinjuku),
Curry: Curry CoCo (Shinjuku), Yamituki, Moya (nishi Shinjuku)
Sukiyak: Asakusaimahan (Asakusa)
Izakaya: Hajimeya (Kabukichou), Omoide Yokocho Alley,
Yakitori: Fuku Yakitori
Other: Harajuku Crepes, Harajuku Gyoza, Asakusa Green Tea Ice Cream, Maid Cafe, Robot Restaurant, Akebono Mochi (Ginza), Zauo

Kyoto (3D) - will be staying at Gion
Ramen: MenBakaIchidai (Fire Ramen), Gogyo (have branch in Tokyo)

we will also going to Kinosaki Onsen (kaiseki at hotel), Takayama (kaiseki at hotel), Kanazawa, Nara and probably Nikko if we have time.

that's what I have so far, what I wrote there is not final, but that's what I've found so far from my research. still lot more can be added to the list, especiall those with ?? lol

Do I need reservation for any of the restaurants listed above?

really guys, so many readings and suggestions out there, but I believe experience and word of mouth is the most trusted review.

Cheers!

Thank you!
