I'm going to Japan for over three weeks (first week in Tokyo) to visit my sister. I've booked for Nobu and Jiro so far for tokyo.
1)Is Jiro worth its reputation? I'm worried that it's more highly regarded among Western critics than by the Japanese.
2)How does the Nobu compare to the ones in London and NYC? My sister has never been to a Nobu, about which I'm constantly harassing her; so I really do not want to disappoint her.
3)Any other absolutely worth the experience (price unimportant) restaurants?
4) Any recommendations for non Japanese cuisine (NOT NY Grill, please!!!)?
5) Slightly off topic and (perhaps inappropriate for this board--APOLOGIES), but in case anyone has experience: what's the best hair salon? I'm thinking either Twiggy or Acqua????
MANY THANKS. ALL BEST WISHES.
